Proper care of Polished Stone:
To maintain the stone's natural beauty, seal the surface with Sta-Clene, StoneTech Impregnator Pro™ or BulletProof™.
For maintenance cleaning, use StoneTech Revitalizer™ or StoneTech All Purpose Stone & Tile Cleaner.
NOTE: Shining Powder will sometimes not give the shine of brand-new marble, but should come within 80-90% of the original shine. In the case of some black marble tile and some softer marble tile, the Polishing Powder will actually give you a higher shine!
NOTE: THIS PROCESS SHOULD ONLY BE USED BY EXPERIENCED TECHNICIANS.
DEFINITELY NOT FOR THE HOMEOWNER!!
