We just purchased this countertop and vanity. I have only tried half water and half vinegar solution and it doesn’t come out. They are water spots. The material is cultured marble. Any recommendations? They are driving me crazy. Thank you!

@jessyrez: have you tried buffing it with a soft dry towel after you wash it?

dry towel…or maybe look into Magic Eraser

I have not tried the buffing because I was unsure if it would damage. I hadn’t done a lot of research on it so I will try that.. If that doesn’t work I will try magic eraser. Thank you ladies!

Wherever you find a combination of hard water and polished surfaces, you are bound to also find hard water deposits. But you can remove these deposits from cultured marble vanity tops without unnecessary costs. Here’s how: into a spray bottle, pour ½ cup of water and ½ cup of white vinegar. After spraying this mixture on your hard water marks, allow the water-vinegar solution to sit for awhile (up to an hour). If your vanity top is then dry, spray it again. You should always be sure the surface of cultured marble is wet before wiping it. Use a soft, clean cloth or sponge and wipe away the water-vinegar solution and hard water spots. If the spots aren’t entirely gone, try this process again. An alternative method is to use a liquid commercial cleaner. But use care in choosing one that is not abrasive.

AS @jtsing: suggests, do a little research to see if magic eraser will damage the marble. My guess is not, but I’ve never had marble, so that’s a complete and total guess.

Did the marble come sealed? You should look into that. It’s a very high maintenance material that requires re-sealing/treating often. That should help water from soaking in and damaging it. That’ll hopefully come off with a dry buff, but if not – it might need to be re-sealed.

i am not sure if this is the same problem as you.
but i have granite countertops in my bathroom and kitchen. this only happens in the bathroom. if i get water on the counter, it soaks in the granite and leaves a dark stain. it take a day or so to dry and then it is back to normal coloring.
