You will get a lot of advice, and like you said you've tried various solutions with no results. The very best way to get rid of those marks is to refinish the marble. If it's not a huge piece you may be able to get someone to do it for a reasonable price. Of course you could (gasp!) try doing it yourself. Some sanding, elbow grease and reshining....ok, maybe it sounds a little easier than it is, and of course you could make a mistake that could look worse than the watermarks....so it's really up to you (and your confidence level at diy). If you decide you want to try diy, let me know and I'll send you some sites that have directions and info. Let me know.
I hope this helps, if you have any further questions, feel free to ask, it costs nothing to click reply. If this has helped, please remember to click the green accept button.
tracey, I'm going to opt out and see if anyone has better info for you. Because marble is a porus material, its very difficult to put something on it to get stains out. In my opinion refinishing is the only option, aside from a doily or tablecloth. If you accept my answer that's fine, if not, maybe someone else has ideas. Good luck.
Well Tracey, I hope next time you have a problem we can do a better job for you. Please don't let this one time keep you from trying us again, and we thank you so much for giving us a chance.
You do not have to pay for an answer if you are not satisfied. In fact, you will not have paid for your answer, unless you click accept, which you have not. If you want to talk to someone about getting your money back, please email email@example.com, and someone will help you.
Again, thank you for your question, and I apologize that we weren't able to help you.
I'm not arguing the fact that you were not satified with my answer. Marble is a porus surface, when it becomes compromised, you can put another solution on it to soak in, but that rarely does the trick, as you said in your own words. That leaves the option of refinishing the surface. I understnad it's not something you want to do, but that does not make it a wrong answer.
Again, you have not paid for this answer....you only pay me if you click the green accept button, which you have not done. I do not want you to pay for an answer that you are not happy with. If you have any other questions, let me know.
