I've read a lot of posts about marble countertops, and I know a lot of people have them and love them, and I think we are next in line :) We've been looking around and I think we've found our slabs of white carrara. They are beautiful, with a white background and grey veins and actually have some subtle gold veining in them ... almost Calacutta like. Anyway, my question is not so much about how to deal with stains that may happen but more about how people clean them on a day to day basis. I am hoping some GW'ers who have the honed marble countertops will share how they do their daily cleaning of them, specifically, what products do you use? Also, do you have to wipe them dry every time after you clean them or is that just a myth?
