Care instructions from Hilke:
Good quality brass and nickel polishes may be used. – However, these polishes may be harmful to marble. Be careful when you polish the sides of the coasters. Use red glanol as brass polish and blue glanol for the nickel-plated edges.
Use minimal plaster on a paper towel or a clean dry fibre cloth and rub carefully on exposed places. Then finish with fibre cloth for extra shine. If there are deeper spots 2 rounds may be required.
Marble is a living and porous material and therefore liquid and foods such as wine, cheese, lemon, oil and other acid products will cause damage on the material - wipe of immediately.
Important information about marble
Marble is a porous and living stone material which means that pattern and colour changes can occur, each top is therefore unique. In order for the marble to maintain its beautiful surface, it is important to treat it carefully and follow the recommended care advice. Keep in mind that a polished marble top has a certain repellent effect on liquids, but despite this, it has a greater tendency to get visible etchings and matt spots when it comes into contact with acidic substances, compared to a matte marble top. We take no responsibility for any damage that may occur, all of with marble is at your own risk.
Taroli - What is it?
Marble is a natural material that has been shaped in the bedrock for 140 million years, and when extracting the stone, it may occur small bubbles that have been formed which are usually a few millimetres in diameter. These gas bubbles are called Taroli and are usually refilled and sealed to the extent possible. You always want to preserve the stone's natural design and charm, which also means that there may be smaller water crystals formed naturally by the water that has flowed through the bedrock all these years.
