Etching occurs when an acidic liquid comes into contact with your marble tile. The more often the acid comes into contact with the marble, the deeper the etching will be. Small etched areas can be improved but deep etching requires the marble tile to be completely refinished. However, the longer you leave the etched areas unattended, the more likely they are to turn into further damage, such as chips and cracks.

Things you need
- Marble polishing powder
- Soft cloth
Clean the area thoroughly with a damp sponge and allow the area to dry.
Sprinkle enough marble polishing powder on the etched areas of your marble tile to lightly cover them. Marble polishing powder is available via marble distributors, online and at some home improvement stores.
Rub the powder gently into the etched areas with a dampened soft cloth, in a motion that is opposite that of your etching. If the etching is vertical, rub the area in a horizontal motion, and vice versa. Continue rubbing the powder into the etched area until the etching is no longer visible and the area is shined.
