What cleaning products are safe to use on a marble shower surround?

We just moved into a new home and the showers have "cultured marble surrounds." The only info I can find online related to cleaning marble shower surrounds is "they are easy to care for" but no one mentions an actual cleaning product to use, and every cleaning product label that i've come across says not recommended for marble.

Do a search in our liberry here and also click on the StoneTech link on the banner here. An excellent product that can be purchased at the TYW Store.
Good Luck

Finally I found a product called Marble & Granite Magic at Bed, Bath & Beyond. It's a spray, and works well, though a bit expensive--about $10 for a bottle.

Welcome, jhonwoo. Please give us a first name to use.

I think you'll find your "cultured marble" surround is actually a cast polymer of some sort, with a clear coating much closer to fiberglass than to any kind of stone. I'd look for cleaners that indicate they're safe for fiberglass.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Welcome also, sunyhere. Please add a first name to that signature line for us. Might wanna come on over to the Professionals' Hangout and start a thread to give all the folks some professional background. We're always interested in new help, 'specially here in the Restoration forum.
