WHY BEESWAX WRAPS?
Beeswax wraps and bags are nature's perfect alternative to single use plastics in your kitchen. By using beeswax wraps you are preventing more plastic waste and will reducing your food waste. Unlike plastic, food wraps allow your food to breathe and stay fresh much longer. Once you try them, we doubt you'll go back!
HOW LONG DO THEY LAST?
With proper care your wraps should last about one year. After that you can either compost them or re-wax them to extend their life.
WRAP IT UP
Use the warmth of your hands to mold a wrap around your food or dish. Use a bit of pressure to help your wrap stick and create a seal.
Your wraps and bags will be stiff & sticky and stiff at first. This is due to a good thick coating of our wax blend in order to provide a lasting product. After several uses, they will become less stiff.
Use beeswax food wraps for cheese, breads, leftover fruits, vegetables and so much more. Our wraps come in a variety of sizes to cover small bits of cheese or large casserole dishes.
NOT FOR RAW MEATS
All of our wraps and bags are made with premium 100% cotton, local SK beeswax, jojoba oil and pine tree resin.
Small 8"- lemons, bits of cheese, small jars or bowls.
Medium 10"- bowls, fruits, veggies, plates.
Large 13"- greens, larger bowls, breads, celery.
XL Bread Wrap 15 x 18"- breads, baking and casserole dishes.
CARE & CLEANING
To clean your wraps and bags, wash under cold water with mild soap and air dry. Dish bars are a perfect option for wraps as they do not contain alcohol and harsh grease removers. Keep away from heat sources. With care, your wraps should last about a year and can be composted or re-waxed!
Use waxed bags just like any plastic baggie or zipper bag for produce, sandwiches, breads. Just load them, fold and you are ready to go.
To clean your bread or produce bags simply fill bag with cold water and soap. You can gently scrub any spots, rinse and air dry. We find placing your bag over a jar or cup a great way to dry them. If you are finding bread crumbs hard to remove, drying the crumbs out for a day and shaking them before washing will help.
DO NOT PLACE IN MICROWAVE OR NEAR HEAT SOURCE.

Re-Waxing & DIY
With the occasional refresh, your wraps should last a long time. We often say they have a lifecycle of about a year before they start loosing their stickiness.
If you are re-waxing you can give your wrap a good wash in hot water & soap. This is only recommended if you are re-waxing! Make sure to allow your wrap to dry all the way.
Heat your oven to a low heat (200F) and place your wrap onto an old baking sheet (line with parchment paper if you like). You can grate a small amount of the wax bar onto your wrap and allow it to melt in the oven. Alternatively, you can melt your wax bar on a double boiler and brush wax as needed onto your wrap.
Once your wrap is saturated with melted wax, remove carefully and allow to air dry. Please note this will be very hot so use tongs if necessary to prevent burns.
If you are using wax bars to make new beeswax wraps, follow these same steps using a brush to spread wax evenly onto fabric. New fabric will need more wax to become saturated and thinner cottons will use less wax.
