Removing Stained Etches From Marble Surfaces
As you are probably aware, marble surfaces sometimes etch when they come in contact with acidic liquids or foods. However, not all etches are the same. Some etching can also stain the marble. If the liquid that penetrates the marble stone has color, it can both stain and etch your marble, thus creating two separate problems requiring two separate techniques for getting your marble surface back to it's beatiful appearance. This kit assumes that you have a premium sealer to restore the protective barrier that your marble depends on to be stain resistant. It includes only the products that you need to remove the stain and the etch from your marble countertop, marble bathroom vanity, or other marble surfaces in your home requiring treatment.
What Stains Can This Product Help With?
This kit is meant to be used on discolorations that contain an acid and that also leave a stain because of the color of the liquid. These substances are common in many homes. For example, an artifically colored soft drink contains both acid and coloring. This type of liquid can both stain and etch your marble surface. This kit was designed specifically for these kinds of discolorations.

Marble Specific Rust Removal
Removing rust stains from marble is different from removing rust stains from granite because of the stone's composition. Marble is composed of calcite and is sensitive to acidic substances. Therefore, we do not recommend that you just use any rust removal kit to remove rust. We have specific kits that are configured for removing rust stains on marble surfaces.
