Drying mats ok on marble countertops?

Forgive my ignorance, as I’ve never had a marble countertop. I really appreciate your real world experiences, though.


Ive read that water marks can discolor marble. I am, however, forging ahead with using marble in my dream kitchen. My question is this (and I know it sounds dumb!): how do you dry stemware or large pots and pans on marble counters? Do you use drying mats (thick fanric ones) or drying pads (like silicone ones), or are dishtowels ok? Can you leave wet items on any of these overnight or at least for a few hours to dry, or are you risking water marks if you do so?
