Three Steps in Disinfecting Your Marble Countertops

Part of cleaning and maintaining your countertops is to make sure that they are free from harmful germs and other disease causing micro-organisms. Over the last couple of years, we all have learnt the importance of disinfecting every part of your home to stay safe. When it comes to disinfecting the marble countertops, there are certain considerations that you must keep in mind.

Being a porous material, marble allows liquids to seep through and leaves stains if untreated. In addition, marble is susceptible to etching when it comes into contact with acidic chemicals, so you should be careful while choosing the disinfecting products for your kitchen countertops.
