Don't Use Baking Soda or Vinegar to Clean Marble

I see advice posted on various sites about using Baking Soda or Vinegar and water to clean marble. This is NOT good advice, and may cost you $$$.

Marble is a calcium carbonate based stone. This is similar to what bones and teeth are made of. Acids (vinegar) are lower on the pH scale than marble and can burn the polish or etch the stone.

Alkalies (baking soda; pH 9) can also damage marble.

Using a pH neutral cleaner like HMK P24 Stone Soap or other pH neutral marble cleaner is highly recommended.

This is not the case with granite, as granite's are quartz and feldspar based stone and will not react with mild acids and alkalies. You SHOULD however still use a pH neutral soap so as not to break down the sealers than may be on the stone.

Marble is a beautiful but vulnerable natural stone surface. It is a soft stone susceptible to stains and damage. It is a beautiful investment that you should protect by carefully choosing your cleaning products and methods to make sure you do not cause any damage. You need safety during cleaning of marbles and you can’t clean it by storm. You should use a soft cloth or sponge, warm water, natural stone or marble cleaner and marble polish to clean marble of your home.

Thanks for the tips. I believe that we should take proper care of marble flooring as this increases its life. Instead of vinegar we can use soap and water solution or take help from professional cleaning service providers.

Soap and water is fine as long as it is pH neutral. Most household detergents are high alkaline products and can damage sealers and can damage some marbles.

Marble is one of the most preferred floorings for people across the globe. It has a serenity in itself... but maintaining it is also one of the difficult tasks as it can easily turn pale if not taken care off well. That's the reason I resort to only good marble cleaners available in the market and not vinegar as many people do.

Dish Washing Detergents are high pH

A google search of most household cleaners will yield the results. For example,
Dawn dishwashing detergent is pH 9 (alkaline). See MSDS page here:

I agree with you StoneCareOnline that use of Vinegar reacts as an acid to the floor, that is why the Janitors has introduced a wide range of floor care which are free from any type of acid, Which not only makes the floor shine as an ornament but also retain its texture & color for long.

I can't believe someone recommended backing soda for cleaning marble. What else, sand paper 200?

Thanks for your information.. May this information bring light on people who are using vinegar and baking soda for cleaning marble. Vinegar, lime and baking soda are acidic, which will etch the surface of marble. I strongly recommend using of any commercial marble cleaner.

Wink Caution no vinegar!

Vinegar will attack the calcium in the natural stone and cause etching. You will have to polish any effected areas.

I agree with the above statement that don't use the baking soda and vinegar on marble. Because It helps you to get the temporary cleaning but harmful for shine. Those people who use the mixture daily they also need marble polishing soon.
