Installed a basic cultured marble vanity top not too long ago. Just wondering on ways to keep the surface clean. Seems like condensation builds up from hot showers and that promotes things like lint to build up on it. Does anybody have a suggestion how to keep the surface clean(er) longer? I think I've read that car wax will work....

After cleaning it, spray a little "Pledge" polish on it!

If you use liquid soap, stick to the clear ones. The soaps in amber and other colors will stain cultured marble over time, and I've never found a good way to completely remove the stains.

First, make sure your cleaner is appropriate for marble, otherwise the sink will dull and nothing will make it shiny again. I always use GelGloss which is like a spray-on car wax that you buff off of the cultured marble. That will keep it looking like new.
