Question ID: 722590
Beige marble between sinks in a bathroom has been stained, apparently
by the blue-green ink on a toothpaste box set down in some water.  No
amount of scrubbing with water and a cloth has removed the stain from
the tiny whorles and curlicues in the marble. Would like to know what
kind of cleaner and procedure would remove the stain.

"For stains in natural stone, they require a poultice. My favorite
website for natural stone products and care and maintenance issues and
problem solving is Once stains are removed, marble
should be sealed. You should use products recommended for natural
stone, nothing else as you can damage your marble."
