Our Danby marble counters have sparked a lot of curiosity. Do they etch, stain, chip, do we really love them, did we seal them, and how do we clean them?

I’ve answered almost all of your burning questions but saved the simplest for last.

So many factors go into choosing a marble cleaner – will it eliminate oil, food residue, germs, be safe for the marble and most importantly, safe for your family. You know my motto, sometimes simple is simply the best.

We used Mrs. Meyers on danby marble at our previous home and didn’t experience any issues, but I wasn’t convinced a commercial cleaning spray was all that great for marble, either.

There are a number of marble cleaners available. Some leave streaks, some work just fine, but I didn’t find one cleaned any deeper or better than another and to be honest, nothing cleaned better than…

Dish soap is gentle, safe, and effective. Given that grease is the only thing that stains sealed danby marble, I love that dish soap cuts through grease.

A tiny drop on a damp cloth or paper towel does the trick, but I began to bottle my own spray for convenience.

Scared of marble countertops? I understand. Check out my popular post for excellent alternatives to Carrara marble.

  1. Hi
    I have three things I would like to ask:
    I have a marble dining table which I haven’t had long but I managed to get
    scratches on it and I would love to know the best way to clean the marble and a way to get rid of the scratches if I can.

    I also have marble granite on my work surfaces so would that need a different cleaner.

    My sinks and appliances are stainless steel and they tend to get scratches and water marks on them especially the sink.
    Have you any suggestions what would be best to use on stainless steel.

    Thank you

    1. For scratches, it depends if it’s honed or polished.

      Granite is more tolerate, but this cleaner is ideal for that as well. I no longer have stainless for that reason. Use soap and water followed by a foam glass cleaner.

  2. I’m a KISS (Keep It Simple Stu@#d) cleaner as well. My choice is Castile Soap and water spray. Shines marble, tile, and stainless steel beautifully. No need for a cabinet full of cleaners. Safe for animals and humans.

  3. I would really appreciate your recipe or advice on marble sealers. I cannot seem to get the oily streaks off my counter tops no matter what I use.

    1. I wish I had a remedy for it! We seal ours once a year with this, however it won't eliminate any existing oil. I learned the hard way that the initial seal only works when the marble is completely dry after fabrication. We haven't had a single oil mark since we sealed it ourselves.

  4. Great advice, as per usual. Where is that darling little white tray/catchall from? I’ve been looking for one that exact size!
