Dry the marble top with a chamois cloth. Buff it to a shine by rubbing the entire surface with the cloth in small circles. Cover the surface with commercial stone polish or marble-polishing paste if you want more shine after buffing with a chamois. If using a spray-on stone polish, wipe with a soft rag.

Does marble crack in cold weather?

Posted by Visitor

reply icon Reply to this question 1Reply

Marble Tiles can crack if they're exposed to very cold temperatures. While marble typically holds up well against cold temperatures, moisture is an issue for this porous stone. For example, if snow covers a marble slab for a long time, the moisture may eventually make its way into the stone and cause it to crack.
