    My wife accidentally cleaned the dirty grout of our bathroom floor with Ajax which has lactic acid and phosphoric acid... all the bad things for marble. We have marble/ceremic tile veneer(?).
    There is now loss of the top coating on the marble and it has gone rough and has a permanent whitish stain on it (photo attached).

    Does anyone know how I can fix this? Can I put sealer back on it?
    Are there professionals that specialise in this type of repair job?
    Is this fixable??

    Thanks everyone. This is our PPOR.

    Try asking at a tile shop maybe an old school tiler who will share a couple of tricks.
    You could try putting some sealer in just those areas and build up a bit with couple of coats.
    Not sure if it will be a complete success though.

    Wives shouldn't be allowed to use such abrasive compounds - get a divorce.

    Apply Ajax evenly to the rest of the floor ;)
