What are Beeswax wraps?
Beeswax wraps are reusable, eco-friendly and budget friendly way of storing food. These wraps remove the need for single-use and plastic products like cling film, tin foil, zip lock bags and plastic boxes for food storage. These wraps can be washed and used to store food in fridge or even in the freezer for up to a month. Beeswax is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-fungal.

How to use Beeswax wraps?
Place the food, for example cheese or limes or left-over sandwich, in the middle of the wrap. Fold the wrap around the item and press into the shape of the item with the palm of your hand. Beeswax has a low melting point. The heat from your hand melts the beeswax enough that it moulds itself into the shape. The wrap comes with a button on a long jute string to help tie the package you have made. This makes it easy to pack items for travel. Complete usage instructions attached.
NB: Please don’t use it to wrap meat or fish or pineapples as you cannot use hot water to clean the beeswax wraps.

Wash with cold water and mild dish washing soap. Don’t wash in a washing machine or dishwasher.
Store in a cool, dry place and not in direct sunlight. Don’t store or place near heat or use this it in a microwave or oven. Wash by hand and cannot be used in dishwasher or washing machine.
If the wax cracks with use, place the wraps between 2 sheets of grease proof paper and iron on a medium heat setting. Please make sure to cover the ironing board with an old towel to prevent wax from leaking on to the cover. The heat from the iron will melt the wax and fix all the cracks in the wrap. In case the iron comes in contact with the wax, clean with hot soapy water to remove any residual wax.
If you have damaged the wraps and wax has flaked off (within 6 months of purchase), please post the wraps back to us with a self-addressed stamped envelope. We will fix the wraps and post the wraps back to you in the return envelope. We don’t charge for this service.
