White film on stone shower floor after cleaning. Help!

Cleaning lady used 409 to clean our stone floor in our shower. It has since turned white when it is dry. It disappears when it is wet. What can I do to resolve this?

Looks like it was acid etched.

You can buy an "enhancing stone sealer" to give it an all dark wet look. That's about it.

Welcome, Jenn.

I can't find any indication that any of the 409 cleaners is acidic, but perhaps Mike will tell us how he knows about that.

Which of the 409 products was used?

It's actually fairly basic.

Pretty sure that will still etch the stone

I've never heard of an alkaline product etching stone.

Seems more likely that something like the 409 cleaner might leave some sort of residue, but I'm not familiar with that being a problem, either.

Perhaps one of our stone gurus will have a clue.

Sounds similar to an issue that we had years ago when we used some Lyson 4-in-1 cleaner:

We scrubbed a couple times with a mild Dawn/Vinegar/Water solution with limited success. We ended up buying another cleaner/solution (I forget the name), but we drug our feet and ended up not using it. The good news is that the white film disappeared, but it took a long time. Hopefully you can find something if you're less patient than us!

just in case the OP comes back, I would like to know how/if this was resolved.
