Care & Instructions

Cleaning Method

  • For your hourglass, polish brass and steel with a soft cloth, use brass cleaner for tarnish. Dust wood parts gently, and if needed, apply wood cleaner sparingly. Clean aluminum with a damp cloth and mild detergent, drying thoroughly afterward.


  • Protect your hourglass from excessive moisture. While brass, steel, and aluminum can withstand some humidity, wood may warp or crack, and metal components might tarnish under prolonged exposure.

Avoiding Chemicals

  •  Keep the hourglass away from harsh chemicals and abrasives. These can damage the surface finishes and potentially affect the glass integrity.
  • An hourglass measures time through the flow of sand from one bulb to another, traditionally used to mark short periods, such as an hour, in a visually engaging manner.
