TERSO MR® Marble & Porcelain Care Recommendations

Updated: Feb 11

Changing the mindset for pure and simple natural stone care is not easy. The usual tendency is to use the brand name stone cleaners and other harsh, unnecessary solutions. TERSO MR® advises gentle ways of keeping a natural stone surface.


We present simple marble, natural stone, and porcelain surface care recommendations to use on countertops/vanity tops, showers, and floors.


COUNTERTOPS AND VANITY TOPS


• Hydrogen peroxide 3%

• Green Palmolive dish soap

• Spray bottle

• Microfiber towels or white bounty paper towel

A Simple Alternative:

• 3% hydrogen peroxide wipes



How to use:

In a spray bottle, add half of the hydrogen peroxide and half distilled water, followed by three drops of the Green Palmolive dish soap. Spray directly onto the surface or on a Microfiber towel to lightly buff the surface, dry if necessary using a 2nd dry Microfiber towel. Or simply use the 3% hydrogen peroxide wipes.


Important Note:

Periodically sealing countertops surface can be a waste of resources; the most effective solution is to learn how to properly care for a surface. Avoid citrus spills on marble that will cause surface etch marks such as wine, orange juice, and tomato paste. Instead, use a coaster, placemat, or a food tray.


There is no sealer that will prevent surface etch marks caused by citrus spills, which are not stains, and does not indicate marble will be damaged.



SHOWERS SURFACE CARE


• Hydrogen peroxide 3%

• Soft car wash sponge or soft car

wash brush

• Green Palmolive dish soap 

• Microfiber towels

• Spray bottle



How to use:

As soap scum and mildew accumulate on the surface of the stone, marble or porcelain. Use a 3% hydrogen peroxide, add a teaspoon of Green Palmolive dish soap. Spray directly on the surface, Use a soft sponge or soft car wash brush to remove any stubborn soap scum or mildew. Finally, use a microfiber towel to dry the surface. The same mixture can be used on shower glass, toilets, and sinks, thus avoiding any other harsh detergents that usually damage the finishes.


Important Note:


TERSO MR® does a thorough assessment and provides necessary recommendations, as it is vital that not a single drop of water intrudes under the substrate that may cause Waterlogged Shower™.


No cleaner will be able to remove persistent mildew, mold, and calcium in grout seams on a Waterlogged Shower™ not yet treated by TERSO MR®.


MARBLE & PORCELAIN FLOOR CARE


• Hydrogen peroxide 3%

• Green Palmolive dish soap

• Vacuum with a soft brush or Microfiber dust mop

• Microfiber mop without the metal frame

How to use:


First gently brush, vacuum, or dust mop any loose surface debri. In a gallon of water, add two cups of the 3% hydrogen peroxide, add a teaspoon of the Green Palmolive dish soap, and use a microfiber mop. Dry with a microfiber towel, if necessary.


Have a designated microfiber mop for the kitchen and one microfiber mop for the bathroom floor to avoid cross-contamination.


Important Note:


Use recommended soft padding under the rug door entrance, work area, and other busy areas around the house.


Protect the surface with soft felt pads on chair legs to avoid scratching or marking the floor.


Please avoid applying vinegar, bleach, ammonia, crystallization, and surface coatings on natural stone. Also, please keep scrubbing pads and harsh household cleaners away from natural stone.
