How to Restore a Marble Floor's Shine: Unlike hardwood, vinegar should never come into contact with marble. Anything acidic such as orange juice, soda, or other kinds of fruit juices will strip off the natural shine and make your marble floors dull forever. Instead, fill up a large bucket with warm water and 1 tbsp of dish soap. Get out your floor cleaning equipment and sweep or vacuum up any dust or debris. If you have a large space to clean, hand scrubbing can be a pain, so you may want to invest in some heavy_duty equipment like those from J & J and Services. Dunk a large sponge into the soapy water, squeeze out the excess and rub down your marble floors. Then, take a damp cloth and go over the marble once again to clean off any soap.
Different snap cutters have different means of snapping tile. Some have a heel at the rear of the lever that has the cutting wheel at its toe; with others, the reverse is true. Whatever the design of your cutter, use the surface to apply pressure to the score line. In combination with a bead built into the base of the cutter, the pressure will cause the tile to snap in half. A little patience, some practice, a score and a snap, and you're a tile cutter.
