Hi all, hope you can help. Just moved and the living room has a large marble
fireplace which is heavily stained with soot, can anyone recommend a
cleaning product or made up solution that will clean it safely. The marble
seems to be a grey tone with black streaks if that makes any difference.
Soap and water if its just soot,however if its ground in soot/stubborn opt
for a propriety brand cleaner for the purpose of cleaning marble as some
cleaners can stain the marble or even discolour it.
Pop into a gas fire showroom near you sometimes they have a cleaner for
The museum people seem to go for a product called "Vulpex Spirit Soap"
you can get this from all sorts of conservators suppliers like
http://www.picreator.co.uk/articles/5_vulpex_liquid_soap.htm for example.
Might be worth looking throiugh some of the conservation websites, and the
National Trust "Housekeeping Manual has a lot of information in it.
