Beeswax wraps are the perfect alternative to tin foil and cling film and are a great solution for everyone who wants to reduce their ecological footprint while using less plastic in everyday life.
The warmth of your hands gently melts the wax enough to make it malleable and stick together.
The beeswax wraps allow the food to breathe, stay alive and keep fresh. Beeswax wraps can be used directly on food and to cover food containers.
To clean, simply wash by hand with a cold to lukewarm water(you can use some ecological, mild soap) and allow to air dry before storing. Do not place them on direct, strong sun because wax can melt.
Not to be used with raw meats, fish, hot foods, or any heat producing appliances( i.e. microwaves, dishwashers etc.).
You can use them to wrap your food, lunch or your kids snacks for school, wrap cheese, bread, muffins, halves of fruits…
Parsley and celery, wrapped in wax and stored in the refrigerator, will keep it fresh longer than in the plastic foil because vegetables continue to “breathe“.
Once they have reached the end of their life, they can be re-waxed if you wish. With proper use and maintenance, wraps can be of good quality and daily service for at least half a year. All wraps are hand-cut, made of quality cotton in a smoke free home.
