Requires Attention, Like Your Girlfriend
When sealed with a protective layer, a marble countertop appears to be generally more hygienic compared to a laminated surface or a butcher block. Do not get me wrong, you can have your butcher block sealed with a protective layer too to make it water resistant. But stones being stones are just sturdier to work on. Compared to its counterpart, granite, marble is definitely on the softer side, aesthetic wise and its durability. Though having its status elevated from a limestone to a pretty stone through a process called metamorphism, there are certain characteristics which are here to stay, like how it is still porous. Having that said, choosing marble as a countertop means that you have sworn in to protect it from any potential harm.
When working on a marble countertop, even with a protective sealant, there are still bound to be stains and scratches. It is always the most naturally thing to straight work on the marble surface when you have such a nice and workable countertop. But this also means that your marble is exposed to knife scratches, from all the chopping or cookie cutters. A sealed countertop may be more water resistant but at the end of the day, it is still porous, therefore, all stains are to be wiped off immediately, even water. Marble fizzes when it comes in contact with acids, a big no no to detergent with a low PH as it may corrode the sealant and cause the surface to etch. Even if you avoid using countertop directly, it is impossible for you to be too cautious all the time because how do you ensure there are no splatter at all when you cook or wash the dishes? Else, where is the joy to be in the kitchen?
