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.
  • To use, simply invert the hourglass to start the sand flow, marking the passage of time. Place it on a stable, level surface to ensure accurate timing and to prevent falls.
  • If you are unable to receive your product(s) at the time of delivery, they will be held for 3 days at the nearest delivery hub. If not claimed within this period, Craple reserves the right to either modify or cancel the order.
