    Have you actually used this on marble? I had a friend asking. She was told she shouldn’t even use lemon juice or vinegar on it… just hydrogen peroxide. I think she’s interested, but hesitant…

    • I do not have marble. I would test in inconspicuous area. I have heard of others using it safely on marble.

  5. Amanda C says:

    Also, when using in dishwasher, do you only use the thieves cleaner or do you also use “normal” dishwasher detergent?

    • Now I will only be using Thieves dishwashing soap…new YL convention product from last week. Stay tuned for blog post on this amazing product!
