    Please use something to protect it from heat, we have a marble bathtub and sink and they cracked from running straight hot water on it over time. I think it makes a difference if it is natural marble or cultured. I know you can get a spray marlble cleaner but I think just wiping with a fibre cloth is best. Good Luck!

    We got marble counter tops in our kitchen about two years ago. I love them! According to the installer, do not use chemical cleaners on your marble. If you use chemical cleaners, it will wear away the 'sealant'.A micro-fibre cloth (Norwex is awesome) and good old-fashioned hot water work really well. I dry mine with with a shammy to bring up the shine.

    We got a marble table also, i use a few drops of Dawn(or other dish soap) in a spray bottle filled with water to clean it. No hot pots, marble can't take it like granite would. I also already have water stains so you have to be vigilante about keeping it clean.

    Can you put a glass top on it? I only ask because it's a dining room table -- it's going to get used and I'd want to be able to use it like a regular table while still appreciating the pretty marble. I've cleaned marble counters with just dawn dishsoap, water and a norwex cloth, like the previous posters said.

    I don't know if you can put glass on marble, I've seen it on granite, it was lifted off the stone with four little rubbery feet (less than a 1/4 inch thick) that stuck to the glass and then rested on the table.
    Raisin cookies that look like chocolate chip cookies are one of the main reasons I have trust issues.

    We are thinking of putting glass on it,right now i'm useing a bunch of placemats. I already have a couple water stains! The little paper on the table said not the wipe with cemicals or anything water based. What kind of wax or polish should i use to keep it shiny?

    ive had marble counters for about 5 years, anything hot will leave marks and will never go away, use trivets for sure! You can buy a gentle shine cleaner made just for marble and such at home depot. I use it once every few months if I remember. I love marble, but it is more finicky then granite.

    (once my youngest left a glass cup on the counter right on top of where our built in dishwasher was running and from the steam of the head it left a glass mark on the marble)
