I bought a new house and the master bathroom is all tiled in travertine, the floors, walls and shower. I told my cleaning lady that she could not use any harsh chemicals, to use just soap and water but when I came home, she had tried to clean the shower with harsh spray cleaner, so now I have drip marks on about 15-20 tiles. Does anyone know how I can get these drip marks out? Thx

Get a real stone cleaning agent. Some of the better tile retail stores, especially those that carry a large selection of stone tiles, will have it. AquaMix, Miracle Sealant Company and Stone Tech Pro are a couple of good ones. You can also try a direct seller online at www.mbstone.com

Thank you so much for the help on the travertine. I should have also asked though, once I have cleaned the tiles, should I seal it, and if so what would be best? If I seal it, do I also seal the grout? I've heard you don't have to since it's non sanded but will it hurt to just roll it on with a paint type roller? Any suggestions for sealing? Thanks,

The same companies also make quality sealers. Seal both the tile and the grout

yes you always want to seal stone products and the grout joints or you will get mineral deposit stains from the moisture taht seeps into the stone over time.

Moisture can seep into it from the face and the edges through the grout joints.

This should be dont AT LEAST bi-anually.
