The easy and effective trick to polish marble grit back to its original shine

Marble grit floors were very much in vogue in Italy in past decades. They were very common in our grandmothers’ homes, as they were a cheaper alternative to other types of materials.

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

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

The only drawback of this type of flooring is that they tend to lose their classic shine. But there is no need to fear: you can thoroughly clean and polish marble grit floors with all-natural ingredients.

Below we suggest two effective remedies to get marble grit floors as shiny as new.

Natural detergent

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

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

Once you have a smooth mixture, soak a cloth in it and wipe it all over the floor. After about 5 minutes, rinse with a cloth soaked in warm water and well wrung out.

Repeat the application several times until the floor is completely shiny.

Use only denatured alcohol

This remedy is as simple as it is effective. Just pour 5 tablespoons of denatured alcohol into a bucket full of lukewarm water, and use the solution to clean the floor normally.

No rinsing will be necessary.
