THE NATURAL ALTERNATIVE TO PLASTIC WRAP
WHAT IS BEESWAX WRAP?
Beeswax food wrap is made of cotton fabric which has been coated with a layer of food-grade beeswax. The result is a flexible yet tacky textile which can be used as a cling wrap substitute. The waxy coating is water resistant yet breathable — making it perfect for food storage.
Not only is beeswax food wrap a great way to eliminate single-use plastics in the home, it is versatile and easy to use. All it takes is the natural warmth of your hands and the application of some pressure to soften the wrap, which is then easily molded as a lid to cover a container, to transport snacks and consumables, or to store produce.
HOW LONG DOES A BEESWAX WRAP LASTS?
When taken care of, one beeswax food wrap can last 150 to 250 uses, or about a year. To dispose of aging wraps, cut them into small strips and toss it in the compost or organics bin.
HOW TO CLEAN BEESWAX WRAP?
Caring for beeswax food wraps is easy. Simply use cool or tepid water to rinse and then allow it to air dry. To wash away food or debris, use a gentle natural dish soap. Avoid sponges with abrasive uppers or stiff bristle brushes; your hand or a cellulose sponge will work fine.
It is important to know that beeswax products should not come into contact with hot water. Do not put wraps in the dishwasher or washing machine, and if using as a temporary container lid, do not microwave.
Tip: When removing beeswax-wrapped items from the freezer, allow the wrap to warm to room temperature. Prematurely unwrapping a frozen wrap will lead to cracking.
