If you dont get any replies, try asking over at There are professional stone polishers and refinishers over there who can tell you what kind of cleaner to use and more importanatly what not to use. Have the name of your stone posted in your question if you know it. Various stones will react differently to the same cleaner so a name will help them in guiding you.

about your black marble what you have done is acid etched your marble and the re is nothing you can do you will need to contact a stone restoration company like myself the floor will need to have diamonds put on it to remove etch then will need to be polished and sealed this is the hardest on black exspecialy if youhave lippage ..... you said footprints how much of the floor are we talking about and how old is the floor also do not use acids or vinigar this will make it alot worse

If you have natural stone products in your home, these must be cleaned and maintained with products recommended for marble. The usual cleaners from underneath the sink can do damage. Marble is a softer limestone product and easily harmed by citric and other acids, alcohol and oils. As indicated, a stone restorationist will have to polish to restore the marble floor.
