Our Kitchen has marble floor tiles which a looking very dirty and they
seem to have a horrible white shadow.
I can't really remember how clean it was when new because we had to
temporarily lay down lino because my 1 year old found it horrible to

Pick up the liquid with a wet vacuum & rinse. Should make a big difference.
Failing that, you can use a mildly acidic stone cleaner like this (QMT
Look under Janitorial Supplies in YP - most stock Prochem products.
