Marble Polishing Powder Etch Remover

This unique and user-friendly Etch Remover / Marble Polishing compound easily removes water-stains, glass-rings, and dull spots to restore the shiny finish. Repairing damage from acid and chemical etching has never been easier!

SAVE 15% on the Etch Remover when also purchasing the "Bundle" (see tab on this page above) Etch Remover + Granite & Marble Spray Cleaner. The Marble Repair Kit offers complete care with repair, cleaning, and polishing products. 

Restore the shine to your polished marble and travertine surfaces with this very popular and effective professional-grade etch repair marble polishing powder. Excellent for light scratch repair as well.


NOTE: For use on polished (shiny) surfaces only (marble, travertine, limestone, and onyx).

NOT FOR USE ON BLACK MARBLE or marks that feel rough-to-the-touch. For black marble and rough etch marks use the Etch Remover / Marble Polishing Pads - Drill Kit. Black marble is more difficult to repolish than other marble colors and the Drill Kit product is more suitable. However, on black marble, a professional may be needed in some cases. 

NOT FOR USE ON HONED or other non-polished surfaces (it will make the surface shiny). For honed marble finishes use the Etch Remover / Marble Polishing Pads - Drill Kit.

Will not re-polish granite, quartzite, serpentine (green marble), or quartz countertops. To repolish green marble (serpentine) or granite use the Granite Polishing Kit.


TIP: The Etch Remover product must be neutralized and removed from the treated area after and/or in-between applications. We recommend using this Granite & Marble Cleaner for this purpose and for general marble cleaning.


An Essential Product for Polishing Marble and Marble Repair


Calcite-based stones like marble, travertine, limestone & onyx are sensitive to acidic foods like citrus fruit, fruit juices, wine, coffee, soda, vinegar and to alkaline cleaning products like bleach and nearly all typical household cleaning products found at your local store. Such substances cause "acid etching" or "chemical etching".


The acids and chemicals can corrode or "etch" the surface creating dull spots, clear or light-colored spots, and glass-rings. These are not stains in the traditional sense. Nothing is absorbed into the stone, so etching is not related to sealing. Marble etching is actual physical damage that removes the polished (shiny) layer and eats into the stone. A stone sealer will not prevent marble etching. 


The original shiny polish on your marble countertops and floors was created by friction and abrasion. The Etch Remover / Marble Polishing powder works in the same fashion restoring the shine and color to surfaces damaged from etching by polishing marble surfaces. The process is similar to sanding wood smooth. 


Best of all... it's an easy DIY project saving you the costly expense of hiring a pro in most cases. Marble repair and maintenance made easy! Although rare, very severe etching that is rough to the touch may still require professional attention.

NOTE: Etch Remover / Marble Polishing Powder is not to be confused with Topical Stone Polish. The Topical Polish / Conditioner is a  "shine enhancer" which can only enhance undamaged surfaces. It cannot remove glass-rings or repair etching damage.

After spraying the wrong cleaner with oxi clean on a brand new Carrara marble vanity, I thought the dull etch spots were permanent. Nothing from the usual home improvement stores worked. But the Touchup Etch remover rubbed away the spots almost instantly! After just 1 or 2 iterations of rubbing with the touchup plus water, the countertop was shiny like new. All spots were gone. I would definitely recommend. The process was very simple. I’m glad to have this for future spots although I’ll be a lot more careful.

I rarely write online product reviews but the Stone Care Etch Remover / Marble Polishing Powder I bought from your website is truly incredible. After several spots (small, but annoying to my eye) developed on a recently purchased marble vanity top, I tried various solutions, none of which worked.

Your website helped me understand that the problem was actually etching (I think caused by a drippy liquid soap dispenser, since banished to the trash).

I had etching over the portion of my double sink marble vanity where various perfumes, skin products and cosmetics had left etched spots and dull areas. There were also several spots on the marble floor in front of the sink. I first tried the etching powder and the spots on the highly polished floor disappeared with little effort and a simple washcloth. However, the marble top vanity remained spotted and dull after a few attempts. I next purchased the etch remover polishing pads and drill kit. Although the instructions for the pads say that water alone will be effective, I did not find this to be the case. The rougher pads dulled the marble and I could not get a sheen back. However, that changed when I used the etching powder paste with the fine polishing pads. My drill had to be charged, so I used the pads with the powder by hand, and after several attempts, voila, the marble sheen returned. I was ready to give up but am glad I didn’t. My countertop is now uniformly glossy and the etched spots are hardly visible. I am very pleased with the result.

Bought the Etch Remover with the Cleaner bundle for repair of a Carrera marble bathroom countertop that had several drips of something that etched the surface. I will admit I was skeptical. I followed the directions using the proper amount and method as per the instructions. I ended up with a section about 8" long by 4" wide that looked like fancy rough concrete. Instead of panicking I did another process with less product...better but not good. Third time was the charm! The top looks as good as new and the etched areas are gone. It was my fault that areas got so large as I did general scrubbing rather defect area concentration. Regardless, don't panic just keep working and finish will come back. At least it did for me. The cleaner works well between treatments and gives the final product a great look.+++++++ COUNTERTOP SPECIALTY COMMENT: Thanks for your feedback Bill! You got it exactly right. It is a process that must be repeated in short rounds of applications until you fully restore the color and shine. Often one application is enough. In other cases, 3 or 4 applications may be needed but if you stop in the middle it will seem like it's not "working". Just keep at it, focus on the specific area of the etch mark, and you will successfully repair the damage and restore the shine of marble, travertine, and limestone surfaces.

The issue is a bath floor which has become etched and dull.It is not damaged , just dull. I made up the paste material and tried a small area by hand and then with a slow speed circular hand buffer.

I must say after only about a minute with the buffer and a followup with the marble cleaner there is a very good reflective gloss.

After cleaning the shower with CLR, I inadvertently set the wet bottle down on the marble counter in the bathroom. It sat there for some time and when I finally moved it, I noticed a giant cloudy spot on the counter. The CLR has eaten through the top layer of the marble. I feared it was permanently damaged, or at the minimum, would require professional repair. I found this product online and figured I had little to lose. After just one application, the cloudy spot was nearly gone. After a second application, it was like it never happened. In fact, the treated area looked so good and so shiny that I decided to treat the entire countertop. Looks like brand new.

I have tried using different products in the last few years to fix a glass ring that has long agitated me with no results. After reading some of the reviews I have to admit that I was skeptical of this product too, so I initially tried it under the counter to see if there was anything I should be concerned about. Nothing bad happened, so I dug in and worked on the glass ring. It looked like it initially did some good, so I went after another spot right by the sink where I spilled vinegar and didn't clean it up very timely. The vinegar spot cleaned up with some rubbing, so I went back and worked the glass ring. I was very impressed with the results. I have a very dark granite so you can seriously see etching in light reflections and both spots cleaned up very well.
Also, we built a new house six years ago and I was disappointed to see what looked like a scratch mark about 8-10 inches long at one end of the center aisle. It couldn't really be considered a scratch either, more like the polish was scrapped off in a squiggly line. I complained to the home builder and he sent someone out from the place they purchase the granite from. He worked on it for about an hour with a piece of wax and cotton cloth. He was able to minimize the problem, but I knew it was still there and could see it when standing in the right light. I couldn't help myself, I put this product on the scuff. It took considerable rubbing and buffing, but you can barely see it now. What little is now visible just looks like a natural part of the stone. VERY IMPRESSED!!! My husband (who notices nothing) was too.
I would definitely recommend this product. It's not a product that can simply be wiped off, you have to be willing to rub and buff until the film/residue is gone.

Not only did this product not remove an etch mark from my counter, but it made it look significantly worse by removing the "shine"/finish from the polished marble. It looks like a complete mess now and will need professional repair.

++++ COUNTERTOP SPECIALTY COMMENT: Ashely we certainly apologize for any trouble you're having using the product. Know we are always here to help. Simply contact us and we will give all guidance needed.

What you describe is 100% normal and how the product works... except that you stopped too soon.

The product must be applied in repeated small applications until the shine is restored. The key word is "until". If you stop in the middle, you'll see exactly what you describe.

This may seem like nonsense, but it is how the process of restoring marble works.

Note that you aren't actually "removing" the spot but rather re-polishing it to make the dull spot shiny. It's a process that can take repeated applications. A pro will do the same thing only charge you 10X more for it.

+++ COUNTERTOP SPECIALTY COMMENT +++ We certainly apologize you did not get the result expected. However, please know that what you describe is 100% normal and how the product works... except that you did not complete the process and you spread the product around on too wide an area.

The product must be applied in repeated small applications until the shine is restored. If you stop in the middle, you'll see exactly what you describe.

And note that this is not a "wipe on, wipe off" product. Also, the etch mark is not being "removed" as a stain would be. The surface finish itself has been physically damaged and this product restores that finish by re-polishing it to a shine.

It's like sanding wood. If you sand just a little, all you will do is rough up the surface. You may even see the scratches from the sandpaper. But continue sanding, sanding, sanding and eventually, the wood will look and feel super smooth. The same process applies here. There are no set number of applications needed. Simply make repeated applications until the shine is restored.

The number of applications needed varies depending on the severity and size of the mark and, in some cases, on the particular marble color. Some may repair an etch mark in only one or two applications. Others may need 5 or 6.

If you read the reviews, you'll see a few others that have made the same error.

Please know we are always here to answer any questions you have and provide all necessary guidance on choosing and using products. We sincerely aim to help you solve your stone care issues and not just sell a product.

I followed the polish with the Granite & Marble Spray Cleaner and the Topical Stone Polish. It really does look better than it did new. No, it really does! The black seems blacker, deeper, richer color. The whites seem whiter, and the shine is phenomenal.

The following is my observation only, I could be making erroneous assumptions. I have a side board with a dark, almost black marble top that the previous owner used as a wine serving platform and she REALLY liked her wine. There were many rings from the bottom of glasses and a lot of splatter spots. In the end it looks quite nice and unless you are really looking it is as good as new. The few remaining areas are from glass rings that started a few inches in diameter and about a quarter of an inch or more thick. It seems they were left without cleaning and after half an hour I had a barely noticeable ring about 1/64th thick but again, if you aren't looking in the right light you can't see it. The spots from splatters varied but a single spot might take two to three minutes to polish to oblivion or for an area with many a 10" x 10" area might take 30 minutes to make them all go away. It seems that the polish has a variable abrasive property so that as you start rubbing it is course but as you work it over time it becomes a fine, almost creamy polish. I thought the cost was a little high but I can't argue with the end result. I am new to marble and no one besides me will ever notice there was anything wrong with the piece as bad as it was. +++++++++++ Countertop Specialty comment +++++ Thanks for you comments! Etch mark severity will vary. Thus, the number of applications and time to repair will vary for each mark as well. However, it works like sanding wood. Continue making repeated applications UNTIL you achieve the level of shine desired. The product may seem expensive compared to a regular "cleaner", however, it is super-cheap compared to professional re-polishing, which is your only other option.

We got Etch Remover and Stone Care Cleaner and with some great tips from Ryan the top looks brand new. Saved the $400 cost to replace the top. Fantastic product!!

This was the best product I found. After etching a marble floor with the use of vinegar, I applied the product and followed the instructions on removing etching. It was fantastic. It was a reasonably large area, and I could have used another bottle as I was covering the entire floor. It removed the etching and polished to a high shine. Thank you for the help.

This product did not work to my expectations, doesn't work on polished marble etch marks. ++++++++++ ADMIN REPLY: Hi Ron, we're certainly sorry it didn't work as you expected it to. Please know we are ready to provide any and all guidance needed to ensure you are able to achieve the desired results. Just need to ask.=== The product does absolutely work to restore etch damage on polished marble. Stone restoration professionals world wide have been using this product successfully for many years.... along with thousands of homeowners. === The most common issue we see is customers expecting the product to simply wipe on and wipe off and giving up too soon. If used in this manner, it will seem like the product doesn't "work". However, several small applications must be made... and the key is... to do so until the shine is restored. Just have to keep at it... and it will work perfectly. Cheers!

Since I have had a marble floor in a guest bath for over 20 years with little etching or problems I installed a Carrara marble countertop in our master bath. I was having some floor repair done and the workers laid a bag that had a petroleum based product that had spilled in the bottom of it on the counter. It seeped over several hours onto the marble creating at least a 1 foot round intensely dark stain. I tired poultices and was able to draw about 90% of the stain up. Not being able to leave well enough alone I made a bleach poultice with paper towels and let it sit for 24 hours. It pulled up the last bit of stain but it also etched the marble so badly that you could see every paper towel design on the marble. I used the etch remover and it worked and removed the etching. I applied it, checked to see if the etching was gone and when it wasn't reapplied it for a total of about 3 times. Yes it took a little elbow grease, but not much. All that is left is a light impression of the paper towel in a few areas, and you can only see it if the light is right and you know where to look. From my perspective the etch remover was easy to use and an amazing product. It left the marble with a gorgeous shine.

I have Carrera Marble tops in my kitchen (sealed when installed) however they are very sensitive to anything that spills (I was aware when installed, but loved the look). However, the Carrera is much more sensative to etching and marking than anticipated. Got some outrageous quotes to have polished and sealed. So, did some searching and found Countertop Specialty on line. Ordered: Stone Care Granite & Marble Cleaning Spray plus the ETCH REMOVER / Marble Polishing product. Expected the worst and hoped for the best. Followed the instructions - worked amazingly well. It does take some "elbow grease" but nothing an ordinary person cannot handle. The product works, simple to use.. and great results. (I consider the Carrera Marble one of the most challenging tasks for the product).

++++++++ ADMIN COMMENT++++++++: Thanks for the feedback..... This is a common mistake... The product is working exactly as it should, but of course you are unfamiliar with it and gave up too soon. ---

You simply need to work the product more. I know it seems like it made it worse since you now have a larger dull spot, but that is a normal step in the process. --- It's like sanding wood..... if you sand just a little you only scuff the wood, but continue sanding and you create a nice smooth surface. The more you work the product you'll learn what it does and see what I mean. ---

The product works by friction and abrasion, so you simply need to continue applying the paste and rub, rub, rub UNTIL you restore the shine. ---

It is not a simple "wipe on, wipe" off process. You are not actually "removing" a spot, but re-polishing a damaged (think scratched) surface. --- The degree of effort and number of times you need to apply the product depends on the marble and the severity of the etching. ---

So, apply it again. Apply small amounts, keep the product wet with sprinkles of water, rub, rub, rub and then wipe off all paste and quickly rinse completely clean preferably with a neutralizing stone cleaner. ---

Then, inspect and repeat again using small amounts of paste in short sessions until you have restored the color and shine. --- It will work! ----- And please contact us at any time for advice and instruction on correct, effective use of products.

All etch marks are the same except for degree of severity, so the product will restore the other etch marks. In the very rare instance you have severe etching (rough to the touch) then you'll need to hire a professional to restore the finish. Marble requires different techniques at various points in the process and this product will not be sufficient for severe etching. But again, very rare, so the product will restore all the etch marks you have... not just some of them. The most common mistake is not working the product long enough or failing to make sufficient applications. You are not actually "removing" the etch mark from the surface, but rather "restoring" the polish/shine to the marble. It's like sanding wood... you simply have to do it until the marble is shiny again. We are happy to provide any guidance you may need.

Where do I start? First off, these items were delivered to my doorstep two days after I placed my order. I used the marble cleaning spray first, as recommended, and oh wow - it smells like yummy chocolate! Then, I applied the etch remover in a circular motion, adding a little water to the solution as directed. At first, I didn't see results and thought the product wasn't working. However, as I continued to buff my marble sink, I could see the luster and shine returning to the areas that were etched from a harsh bathroom cleaner I accidentally used.

You will see the shine come back as you continue to work the product into the marble. I've only done one application and my marble counter looks gorgeous. The parts that weren't etched shine brilliantly and look saturated with finish and the parts that were etched are coming back to their full luster. I can't WAIT to do another application because I know that within a few times, the etching will be completely unnoticeable. I even followed the surface with the light to see where it dulled and it was much less obvious. What a wonderful (and great smelling) product that I will surely give as a treat to my marble going forward. I will be recommending this product to anyone I know who has marble surfaces. One unfortunate side note - the product did not remove a ring stain on the surface, but given how much else it did remove, I'm highly satisfied.

This Item: Stone Care: ETCH REMOVER / Marble Polishing Powder
Stone Care: Granite and Marble Cleaning Spray (1 QT)

Using the Etch Remover / Marble Polishing product is very simple and effective, although different than a "cleaner". It isn't a wipe-on, wipe-off procedure. The powder is re-polishing the damaged area and must be rubbed on the etch mark until it is restored.

However, this is not done in one long application. It's best to make several small/short applications using a new spoonful of powder each time until the shine and color are restored. 

The most common mistake is stopping before the process is complete. The process is like sanding wood. The surface will get smoother and smoother with each application. Continue with repeat applications until the shine is restored. 

Here's how: 

1. Sprinkle about 1/8 teaspoon of powder in the center of the dull etched area.
2. Using a spray bottle with water, mist the powder to dampen it. Or sprinkle with water from a cup. It should be a wet paste consistency but not runny. 
3. Rub in a circular fashion with a soft, moist cloth until the area and paste are dry. This usually occurs in about 20 - 60 seconds. 
4. Mist the area again with water and, using the same cloth with paste residue, rub in circles with light to medium pressure. Then vigorously rub back and forth with more pressure until the surface is dry and shiny. This second polishing will help blend the shine. 
5. Immediately neutralize the paste and clean the area with a stone cleaner like this Granite & Marble Cleaning Spray. 

  • Note: Do not let the paste remain on the surface without rubbing. Clean off completely immediately after step 4.

6. Inspect the spot noting changes.  
7. Repeat steps 1-5 if needed. Two or more applications are sometimes needed and normal.
8. Repeat this process as many times as needed until you restore the shine and blend it with the rest of the surface. 

The Etch Remover is meant to be applied by hand in small sections. A power tool with a buffing pad may be used, however, with caution or you risk burning swirl marks into the marble. It is best to apply by hand. If you choose to use a power buffer, be sure to use minimal pressure, set the speed (RPM) on the lowest setting, and take your time inspecting your results frequently.
