Remove The Dry Dirt First
Use a broom or dust mop
to remove the dry dirt first.
Vacuum next if possible, to make sure that you remove the fine dust or dirt. If you add water to dirt you get MUD !
This is now my favorite cleaner. It comes concentrated. Use it at different dilutions. Just a drop for glass, a glug for your mop bucket, is that a measurement? It leaves no streaks, smells good, and is biodegradable.
It does not dry out my hands! You can find it at Home Depot or Walmart.
Good Ol' Mr Clean
And there is good ol' Mr Clean, dependable fellow.
Sometimes I combine 1 oz of Mr Clean and 1 oz of ammonia in my mop bucket
Murphy's Oil Soap
Murphy's has a good reputation for wood floors.
It is recommended that you rinse this product, but I just use a tiny bit in my mop water. Sometimes a slight film is what you want, as in the case of cleaning stainless steel.
If you use it alot it will make your hands dry.
It is beautiful, but there are so many difficulties living with marble floors, I can't imagine why you would want any floor that is so easily damaged. Heavy furniture must be on thick carpet to avoid hurting the marble floor.
Marble floors should be sealed and polished for protection against stains.
DO NOT USE WINDEX OR VINEGAR
Many products contain acids. You CANNOT even use mild acids on marble.
DO NOT use WINDEX or VINEGAR
It WILL destroy the sealer on the granite.
