    How did this job turn out? I know you said they “look as good as new” – but by your description, the floor didn’t look that good when it was new. Was it easy to get a fairly even level of gloss across the entire floor?

    Hi jon, There are a few deeper scratches and niks from the way it was abused before, but they were definitely smoothed out when I used the diaglo compound. What the compound seems to do, since it is acidic, is eat away a little bit of the top layer which has been scuffed or lightly scratched and smoother it out and return it to a nice shine. I think I will update the post with a picture of the marble. Its not 100% perfect, but its definitely many times better than it was before…dull, dirty, and rough.

    The best product that worked for me was “Marble Refinisher” for my floor. A “Marble Refinishing Kit” for removing spots and water marks on my marble counter tops. I bought these products from a company called Brightstone in California. There sealers worked really well for me.
    Easy to use and all water based

    I found Brightstone products to be safer/less toxic.

    Great article. I wish I had found it before I changed my kitchen cabinets. Now I’m afraid to go thru this mess with the new cabinets in place. Like you, I scratched every single marble tile removing the grout from the surface. I’ll try the Brightstone product.

    Believe it or not, I came to the same conclusion after searching the internet for exactly the same issue, dull marble shower floor. I used a random orbital sander that I had and cut the white pad to fit. Voila, shiny marble. You would think someone would put together a kit for homeowners with a backing plate, a couple polishing discs and some marble polishing powder. Almost everyone has a RO sander, buffer or can buy one at Harbor Freight for $30. Slick Deals dot com has a HF page where they always have 25% off a single purchase coupon.
