Cleaning a cultured marble countertop is relatively simple. For everyday cleaning, you can use a mild dish soap or household cleanser and a soft, non-abrasive cloth or sponge. It’s important never to use or leave any acidic products (ex: cleaners, lotions, and soaps) on cultured marble tops to prevent discoloration and damage to the surface. Be sure to rinse the countertop thoroughly after cleaning to remove any soap or chemical residue, and towel dry with a soft cotton cloth for a beautiful shine. For occasional waxing purposes, Ray’s Countertop Shop suggests a cultured marble polish that will enhance the shine of your surface while adding an additional layer of protection against everyday use.

Why Cultured Marble Is the Best Choice for Your Bathroom

Cultured marble is an excellent choice for residential bathroom countertops for a number of reasons. First and foremost, it is a long-lasting material that can withstand the wear and tear of daily use under the impression it is maintained properly. This makes it ideal for a high-traffic area like a bathroom, where it will be exposed to daily wear and tear. Also, it is a versatile material that is available in a wide range of colors and patterns, making it easy to customize to match your bathroom decor. Ray’s Countertop Shop, Inc.in Glenarm, IL recommends cultured marble due to its non-porous surface that expels bacteria and other harmful pathogens to create a hygienic surface for your family and guests.
