Removing grease stains from your marble or polished concrete surface
Grease stains are generally found around the cooking area.
If you are present when an oil spill happens wipe it up immediately.
Sprinkle the affected area with water and cover with a good layer of Corn flour.
Allow to dwell for about 15 mins, the starch in the corn flour should absorb the oil.
Wipe clean with a damp clean cloth and buff dry.

Make a thick paste with corn flour and water (1 part corn flour/2 parts water).
Apply the paste to the affected areas and cover with plastic if possible.
Allow to dwell over night or up to 24 hours.
Remove the paste with hot soapy water, rinse with a clean cloth and buff dry.
You may need to repeat the process for more ingrained stains.
