Learn how to polish marble countertops.
I’m teaching you how to polish marble countertops today. This is an inexpensive fix for etched and marred marble slabs. You know – the ones with spots and water marks caused by standing water, water droplets and inappropriate cleaners. Since marble is a soft stone, it’s more susceptible to these types of stains than other solid surface countertops. Not only am I teaching you how to completely remove etching and stains, I’m also showing you how to seal your marble slab to resist further issues. So, since I have a bathroom vanity with etched countertops, it’s time to DIY the damage away with a marble countertop polishing kit.
Whether you have solid marble rock or veneer (like I do), this marble polishing kit (available here) will revive your countertop to a like-new surface. I will restore mine to a mirror-like finish during this video tutorial. Currently, this kit is less than $26.00! It’s a real bargain compared to completely replacing your stone countertops! Marble countertop costs are among the highest in the countertop business. Realistically, you can’t purchase one single square foot of marble material for that price. Unbelievably, polishing marble is an easy process for you to do on your own. You just need to prep your space accordingly and you’ll be on your way to vibrant countertops in no time. I share all my secrets with you and show you how to make a marble top shiny – even yours!
This is a cheap makeover!
Because you only need a few supplies for your marble polishing, this entire project costs less than $100.00 to complete.

The few items you need to complete this project are available on my SHOP page at www.reneeromeo.com. It’s so easy and convenient to purchase everything you need in one simple location. I do all the product research for you and find the best products (and deals) to get your job done like a pro. Cleaning and restoring marble really can be an inexpensive project!
By the way, If you’re looking for marble cleaner and polish product to restore your marble surfaces to like-new condition, that product doesn’t exist. I’m showing you something even better. The best marble polish happens to be water – yes, water – and that’s completely free! Can you believe that your DIY marble polish is the very thing that causes your countertop to be etched and marred in the first place? It turns out that water is actually the best marble polish on the planet! Then, when you’re done cleaning and restoring marble, I show you how to keep it brand new-looking for years to come in one easy step.
How to make marble shine
This process restores all color marble, from white marble to black and gives you a vibrant, glossy surface to admire for years to come. When you learn how to polish marble, polishing marble countertops may even give you the confidence to polish marble tile. Marble tile tends to loose its luster, whether it’s installed on a countertop or floor surface. Even though this process may seem daunting (it’s hard to imagine taking time to polish marble floor (s)), I will give you the confidence to try that too. Learning how to polish marble floors will certainly save you thousands in replacement costs.
What we’re really here for is an easy tutorial on how to restore marble table top surfaces with damage by wear and tear. This article demonstrates how marble gets etched: https://www.thekitchn.com/what-a-marble-etch-actually-looks-like-205544 . I’m giving you the education you want to fix the ugly problem permanently. This is an unsightly issue that you don’t have to live with – like this person is doing. If you’re considering living with unsightly countertop surfaces, I’m giving you the preferred option of shining them up, not honing the glass-like look down. Honing is a little different than polishing. You may want to click on the link in the previous sentence to learn the difference.
What do you need?
I have a ‘new’ marble top vanity from a consignment store that I’m demonstrating on today. It is new to me but sorely in need of a makeover. Not only is the marble in rough shape but the sink, faucet and cabinet are full of wear too. Fortunately, all these surfaces are easy to clean and restore with a tiny bit of elbow grease. I have a couple of great drills that will do the heavy work for me. The great news is that you can use either a cordless or electric drill for this project. As you will see during the process of polishing marble countertops, I switch from one to the other. Admittedly, it’s because I forget to charge my cordless drill battery! Oh well, it’s hard to be perfect all the time…
From there, it’s imperative to use a good sealer after you learn how to clean and polish marble. My sealer will protect and enhance the appearance of the countertop for many years to come. The sealer that I’m using today has the additional benefit of enhancing the marble surface. Enhancing a countertop is the perfect solution for restoring vivid color to your marble countertop. Once you bring back the natural gloss and luster, your marble may lack some of its original vivid coloration. This liquid enhancer will revive vivid color and is easy to apply with a foam brush once the marble is wiped down after after polishing. I show you how to apply the product in a step-by-step manner. It’s the magic last step in the polishing process.
