When you buy a globe, you'll want it to remain looking brand new. Here's how to do that:
First, keep in mind that our globes feature a special coating specifically designed to protect the globe sphere and enhance its striking appearance. But everyday dust can be removed easily with a dry cloth. For smudges and fingerprints, you probably will want to use a slightly damp cloth to gently remove them. For more stubborn marks, we recommend a mild, non-abrasive cleanser.
Very important: When cleaning your globe, you should not use household or industrial cleaning products that contain alcohol or any type of solvent. These can fade the intricate colors and details of your globe, and cause damage to your globe's surface.
It's not every day you buy a globe, let alone a stunning gemstone globe. For these sparkling beauties, special care and cleaning is required. Cleansers or polishers with chemicals damage the globe's surface and stand. Therefore, use only a soft cloth slightly dampened with rubbing alcohol to remove fingerprints and raise the sparkle and shine of your gemstone globe. However, avoid using rubbing alcohol on the globe's stand, as it can cause dryness and fading.
We've found that for the gemstone globe stand, a soft cotton cloth with a dab of hand lotion works very well. The emollients of the lotion condition and clean the stand, leaving it shiny and beautiful.
Keep these tips in mind when you buy a globe, and you'll enjoy your new little world for years to come.
