If you take a few minutes after every shower or bath to wipe your marble shower down with a rag, it will keep up its appearance between visits from a professional stone care service.

When you do need to clean your marble shower, however, look for a neutral pH cleanser – don’t just spray your usual bathroom cleaner.
