How do beeswax wraps work?

The warmth of your hands will slightly 'melt' the wax allowing it to stick to itself. You can then use to cover sancks, left overs, cheese, half cut lemons, sandwiches, bread, dishes and so on. Natural anti - bacterial properties of beeswax make them ideal for food storage. Not recommended for covering raw meat or fish.

How do I look after them?

After use wash the wraps with a mild detergent in cool water. If the water is too hot it will melt the wax. Hang them up to dry. After a few months the wax may start to crinkle and redistribute a bit. This is time to pasteurise, just follow the video tutorial.

How long will my wrap last?

Beeswax wraps will last up to a year and probably longer. Make sure you wash them in cool water and pasteurise when the wax is starting to redistriubte. When you start to use your wraps you will get creases where the fabric is folded, this is completely normal.

My wrap is over a year old and looking very tired. What can I do?

You can refresh your wrap with a refresher block. If you want to treat yourself to new wraps then the old ones can be cut up and composted or make great fire lighters!
