Your kitchen counter is literally the workhorse of the kitchen. Even on the days you don't do any cooking, you probably use your counter. It's where you plop down the day's mail. It's where you stand while you're waiting for the coffee to brew. It's where you unpack groceries. And on the days you cook, well, then it's getting splattered with ingredients gone astray, covered with crumbs, and more. The counter really does take a lot of abuse.
Maybe you sweep up crumbs every night before you go to bed. But what about a deeper clean? Here's how to care for your marble kitchen counter.
You really just need a spray bottle, warm water, non-abrasive dish soap, and some towels. Just avoid acidic natural cleaners like vinegar and lemon juice, as those can etch the surface. For deeper stains (red wine!), you'll need to make a paste out of water and baking soda and let it sit on the area for at least 24 hours
