Ever heard of "oiling" marble countertops?

4 years ago

I spoke with the once-owner of a stone yard, a very charming Italian gentleman (aren't they all?) who gave me the following advice:

After my honed marble tops are sealed and installed, I should spray PAM all over them, let them sit overnight and wipe them off with lots of paper towels. He maintained that this would keep new oils from discoloring the marble in spots, since the marble would already be saturated.

Has anybody ever heard of this method or better yet, tried it?
