STAINS

Natural stones such as travertine, marble, granite, etc. are porous materials which means they are absorbent making them prone to stains.  At the same time, that characteristic also means that stains can be easily removed.  When you notice a stain, clean it as soon as possible for better results.

All you need to do is to “lift” the stain by using a product called Stone Pro Deep Clean Gel which is sold at retail stores.

If that fails, it means that the stain is embedded in your tile.  In that case, you can use Stone Pro Wet Poultice Stain Remover that is a ready-to-use paste which does not requires mixing or measuring.

You can purchase both items at this store:  http://www.mystonecare.com/Stone-Problem-Solvers-Tile-Problem-Solvers-s/19.htm
