To clean the hourglass, we suggest to use a glass cleaner with a cloth of choice to wipe it down.
If you do not have a glass cleaner, you can make your own with 1 part hot water to 1 part distilled vinegar and add it to a spray bottle.
What is the Mindful Focus made of and where is it made?
The Mindful Focus hourglass is made of virgin glass and synthetically created “sand”, made of glass beads. The glass beads are created by applying a high temperature to glass, allowing the “sand” to flow at a constant rate through the timer.
No chemicals were used to clean the sand. The sand is toner dyed to have a brown color.
The Mindful Focus is made in China and is packaged in 100% recycled printed Kraft packaging board.
