I'm looking for an eco-friendly marble cleaner and sealer for a bathroom with heavy soap scum on tiles. I'd prefer a homemade recipe.

My wall tiles are dull from steam and soap scum, and the floor has become scratched and dull with use. I'd like to restore this beautiful bathroom to its original splendor.

To remove soap scum, put some dry baking soda on a sponge and apply in a circular motion to the wall. Rinse with clean water. Presto! Clean stone!
