QUESTION:

I have a dining table of travertine stone with wineglass rings and fruit juice stains how can I remove these if possible?

 ANSWER:

Our Oxy Klenza heavy duty cleaner is ideal to remove stains safely even from acid sensitive materials like your travertine.
Mix with warm water and agitate with a nylon brush leave to activate for about 15-20 mins then rinse with clean water.
If you have any etch marks i.e. dull marks on the stone these can be buffed out and we can recommend a specialist in your area that can provide this service.
NB once your stone is clean and dry we highly recommend that it be sealed our Dry Treat Stain Proof is ideal in giving long lasting protection without the need to reapply sealer again for up to 15years
