We have water spots that won't come off our black marble countertop. The sealer that was recommended did not do the job.

My wife loves everything black...and no she's not a witch.I made the mistake of concurring on black marble countertops.



Mix up a paste of baking soda and water to the consistency of tooth paste. With a rag rub a small amount of the mixture onto the area of the water spot in a circular motion.

For what it's worth this also works well on stains on a corian top stove.

Good Luck.
