1. Sprinkle a decent layer of cream of tartar on the water stain and add enough hydrogen peroxide to form a thick paste.

2. Rub the mixture on the stain with a cloth using a gentle scrubbing motion. Cover with paper towels, and let it sit for about half an hour. Use a clean and damp cloth to swipe away all residue.

3. This paste also works as a natural hard water stain remover for a variety of surfaces from granite to glass.

2. Spread plastic wrap over the area and let it sit for 24-hours. Remove the plastic, and use a wet cloth to wipe away all of the dried paste.

You need to prepare

  1. Coasters
  2. Soft towel
  3. Soapy water
  4. Plastic wrap
  5. Paper towel

3. Crusty water rings and splatters of dull water marks turn that once shiny and beautiful polished marble surface into an unattractive eye-sore.

4. Instead of ignoring stained areas of marble, or replacing the entire piece, try using gentle cleaners to restore its clean shine.
