    Hi Joy,
    Your question was answered starting at 34:36 in the first hour. Hope that helps, and thanks for the question!

    I emailed the question – how can you eliminate ‘spots’
    on a marble countertop? I scanned for 1/2 hour the Oct 8 radio programs with NO ANSWER. Please allow someone to know the ‘spot’ (timing) on a 2 hour program to refer too to get the information you were seeking. It was very FRUSTRATING. I learned more about a cruise than the question I asked.
