How To Repair Etching on Italian Marble

Q. I have Italian Marble in my foyer and my daughter spilled orange juice on it and etched it. Can it be fixed or does it need to be replaced?

A. In most cases, light etching can be fixed by using a marble polishing powder or compound and following the polishing instructions printed on the label very carefully. This will most likely give you some level of improvement. For best results, you may want to consider consulting a stone restoration contractor that can properly evaluate the damage on site and determine the best course of action. It may involve stain removal followed by a light honing to remove the etch marks and then restoring and blending the polish to match the surrounding areas.
