MB-5 Stone & More Multi Surface Spray Cleaner

mb-5stonemorecleanerquart__52394-1536421958As some of you know, we have updated our product packaging and changed the names of many of our products. One such product is the MB-5. Once named Marble, Granite, & More Spray Cleaner, it is now called MB-5 Stone & More Multi Surface Spray Cleaner. Our products are still the products you have come to trust and depend on for all your stone care needs. They just have a new and improved look to go along with the name change.

Our MB-5 Stone & More has recently been reviewed by Spotless Society as “one of the best natural stone cleaners available to purchase.”  Spotless Society is a premiere home cleaning service in San Gabriel Valley, California. They research and promote all things cleaning on their blog. We are excited to be included as one of the best cleaning products to use on your natural stone as stated in their blog.

If you haven’t already tried our MB-5 Stone & More and are looking for a daily cleaner for your natural stone, whether it be in the kitchen or bathroom, then you should give us a try. MB-5 Stone & More uses a pH neutral combination of special chemicals that quickly and easily cleans marble, granite, ceramic, corian, porcelain, glass, including mirrors and most other hard surfaces. It also works great on bath and kitchen fixtures. It is even safe to use every day!

If you prefer a one step cleaner, then try our MB-17 Stone Wipes. They are the easiest and quickest way to clean your natural or engineered stone and glass surfaces. All you do is wipe the surface clean and walk away!

Enjoy The Natural Beauty Of Your Stone Again

Have you ever been asked if your stone had a polished or honed finish? You can figure out what they mean when they say polished finish, its shiny looking. But, what do they mean when they say honed finish? Honed finish is that natural, smooth looking surface. For example, think of a tube of lipstick or paint color for your walls. You can choose between a glossy or matte finish in either product. The same goes for stone. Honed surfaces tend to do well in high traffic and heavily used areas because they don’t seem to show scratches or etch marks as easily as your polished surfaces. They are also less slippery when wet (something to think about when you are choosing your flooring for your bathroom or staircases). 

Now, you can bring that luster back to your honed surfaces on your own. We have created a kit that gives you the tools you need to get that honed look you’ve been wanting. All you need is some water and a drill (something you more than likely already have at home). The MB-14 Honing Kit is an ideal means to restore your stone surface without spending a bundle on a full stone restoration process. This kit provides the necessary items needed to restore your honed surface back to its natural beauty.

The MB-14 polishing powder works really well as a finishing product to produce a uniform honed surface. It can be used to minimize the factory swirls from honed and filled travertine tiles, along with other honed-finished stones. It also works well removing light surface scratches without the use of professional diamond pads. Now, you can get this polishing powder in a kit, ready to use, instructions included.

The kit comes with eight ounces of MB-14, two hogs hair pads, one white pad, and the drill attachment that holds the pads in place. This kit will cover approximately 150 to 250 square feet. So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and give it a try. It’s user-friendly and may surprise you with how great the results turn out.

How To Get A Professional Look With Your Next DIY Countertop Project

 

Wondering how you can make your marble countertop look brand new again? Do you have spots or rings glaring at you every time you look at your countertop? Scared that the only solution to bringing back the beauty of your countertop involves calling in a professional and spending loads of money?

We call these spots or rings an etch. Fortunately, for most homeowners, there’s a simple do-it-yourself (DIY) solution that doesn’t have to break the bank to accomplish. MB Stone Care has created a simple, consumer friendly, marble polishing compound that is simple to use and cost efficient. It’s called MB-11. It’s a professional grade product that allows you to polish your marble just like a pro. You only need a little, which makes it ideal for spot repairs caused by water stains or acid etching on your marble countertops. No special tools required. All you need is gloves (remember you are using a  professional grade compound), a spray bottle filled with water, a white piece of cloth (washcloth will do fine) and you.

To begin this DIY project, put approximately 1/3 teaspoon of powder (it doesn’t take much) to the spot to be restored and spread it evenly over approximately two square inches. Using the spray bottle, spray a mist of water over the powder, making sure all the powder is moistened. The goal is to turn the powder into a paste consistency. Then, using a clean, white piece of cloth (a washcloth will do fine), rub until the area treated is dry. It shouldn’t take more than a few strokes. To finish with a “professional touch”, spray a bit more water to the area being treated. Then using the same part of the cloth with product residue, rub in circles (with a little pressure). Next you will use a fast back and forth motion (with more pressure) until the stone surface is dry and shiny. This will make for a perfect blend.

For a finishing touch to eliminate any residue, you can spray a little MB-5 (Marble, Granite & More Cleaner) on your countertop and rub it dry. Some people like to spray a little MB-13 (Stone Spray Polish) on their countertop because it coats the stone surface with a smooth and shiny shield. This helps control finger-marks and other minor smudges. These finishing touches are not necessary to get the results you are looking for, but some people like to take the look of their countertops to the next level.

Another option for bringing your marble countertops back to life and removing unwanted etches is using your drill. What? A drill? Yes, a common household drill, along with a Magic Renova Drill Kit, can do the same job as the MB-11 with a little less effort on your part. The pads that come with the drill kit are color coded, making it easy to follow the step-by-step directions. Each colored pad is a step in the process to bringing your marble countertops back to life. All you need with this drill kit is your drill and water. If you would like to have that glossy shine, you can finish up with the last step using the MB-11.
