Our globes have a special coating designed to protect the globe ball and enhance its appearance. Household dust can be removed with a dry cloth, though you may wish occasionally to use a slightly dampened cloth to remove fingerprints or smudges. A mild, non-abrasive product is recommended for difficult marks. Do not use industrial or even household cleaners that contain alcohol or any solvent.
Gemstone globes require special care and cleaning. Please note that chemical cleaners or polishers damage the surface of the globe and stand. Use a soft cloth dampened with rubbing alcohol to shine and remove fingerprints on the globe only. Do not use rubbing alcohol on the stand because it is too harsh.
When cleaning the gemstone globe stand use a soft cotton cloth with a very small amount of hand lotion to remove any fingerprints. With a clean dry soft cotton cloth wipe away the hand lotion and shine.
