Pittsburgh Marble Maintenance Tips
Soft stone, such as marble, limestone, and many variations of slate are rarely used (do not buy) as counter tops in a kitchen. These stones tend to scratch easily and they react with acid, leaving unsightly dull or light patches called “etching.”
Soft stones require more maintenance and care. You will mostly see these soft stone on furniture like a desk, coffee or lamp tables. In that case these are a great buy. Just don’t spill anything acid based on them. Whats an acid based spill? Wine, champagne, fruit juices, cola or pop, ketchup, fruit, etc. Also don’t use vinegar based cleaners, or spill your vinegar based salad dressing. Use coasters!
