We recently bought a house with a marble shower and I am trying to figure out the best way to clean it. All the cleaners I've seen say to not use on marble so I'm at a loss as to what to use....
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I hope this helped you out!
Let us know if you have anymore questions,
Cleaning marble tile is very easy when you have the right tools! To get your marble looking brand new, clean and shiny you will need a variable speed wet grinder and a set of sponge fiber pads. Sponge fiber pads come in sets of 6 with different grits starting at 300 grit and going up to 10000 grit. Simply start with the lower grits first (300) and go up through the grits. The lower grits will clean and remove all the mildew and the higher grits will polish the marble. Attached is a link that shows what the grinder looks like http://www.rotoblast.com/stonepolisher_s/21.htm
After the marble is polished it is always good to pick up some sealer.
Marble flooring enhances the beauty of your kitchen, bathrooms. Never use any acidic item like lemon to clean marble. Use sponge and warm water to clean spots. Wipe your bathroom in a clear towel after each bath.
Note to Self: don't use marble in house! Use a wet grinder to polish marble tile? Ja, got to get my wife a new wet grinder for her birthday! :)
Every little drop leaves a mark on the marble floor. Don't use any other cleaners like brush etc. except ones that are specifically made for marble, as it's highly likely to ruin the surface.
