How to polish marble chips

Marble grit floors have been very popular in Italy in recent decades. They were very common in our grandmothers’ homes, as they represented a cheaper alternative to other types of materials.

Although they have gone out of fashion, marble chips floors are still present in our homes, and retain a great charm , especially when they are original and antique.

Not to mention that marble grit is also very resistant to impacts and wear. Our grandparents were right to prefer it.

The only drawback of this type of flooring is that it tends to lose its classic shine . But there is no need to fear: it is possible to thoroughly clean and polish marble chips floors with completely natural ingredients .

Below we suggest two effective remedies for having very shiny marble grit floors , as if they were new.

Natural detergent

Baking soda is abrasive enough to remove dirt without scratching the floor. By mixing it with alcohol and Marseille soap you obtain a perfect detergent for marble grit floors.

Mix 3 tablespoons of baking soda with 10 tablespoons of alcohol and 1 tablespoon of liquid Castile soap.

Once you have obtained a homogeneous mixture, dip a cloth in it and pass it over the entire floor. After about 5 minutes, rinse with a cloth soaked in warm water and well wrung out.

Repeat the application several times until you obtain a completely shiny floor.

Use only denatured alcohol

This remedy is as simple as it is effective. Simply pour 5 tablespoons of rubbing alcohol into a bucket full of warm water, and use the solution to clean the floor as normal.

There will be no need to rinse.
