MARBLE TILE IS BEAUTIFUL, BUT YOU NEED TO TAKE SOME PRECAUTIONS TO KEEP IT LOOKING IT'S BEST.

MARBLE TILE WHILE BEAUTIFUL NEEDS SOME SPECIAL CARE; I HAVE SOME TIPS FOR YOU!

USE A STATIC SWEEPER TO DO A QUICK SWEEP OF THE FLOOR EACH DAY. DIRT AND SAND FROM YOUR SHOES CAN LEAD TO SCRATCHING AND SCUFFING IF YOU DON'T GET IT EVERY DAY.

FOR GENERAL CLEANING YOU WANT A MILD SOAP AND WATER MIX, NO HARSH DETERGENTS AND DEFINITELY NO VINEGAR - I KNOW CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!?!?!?! BUT THE ACID IN VINEGAR CAN REALLY DAMAGE THOSE DELICATE TILES.

SO CLEAN THE TILES WITH THE SOAP AND WATER AND THEN DRY THE TILES. YOU DON'T WANT TO LET WATER SIT ON MARBLE TILES BECAUSE IT CAN LEAVE WATER MARKS BEHIND.

WHEN I'M CLEANING THE BATHROOM I USE AN ABSORBENT TOWEL TO DRY THE TILES.

I ALSO KEEP A SQUEEGEE IN THE SHOWER SO I CAN WIPE DOWN THE WALLS AFTER EACH SHOWER TO KEEP IT CLEANER THROUGHOUT THE WEEK AND REMIND PEOPLE THAT WATER SHOULDN'T SIT ON THE TILES.

EASY WAYS TO KEEP YOUR MARBLE LOOKING GREAT! THE I'M MRS. FIXIT AND IT'S JUST THAT SIMPLE!
