Keeps your food fresher, crisper, longer - the wraps actually create a similar affect to that of a rind or the skin of fruit or vegetables.
Beeswax wraps - are made with 100% natural ingredients: cotton, beeswax, pine resin and jojoba oil.
Why the wrap works - The formula creates a breathable coating on 100% cotton cloth. Pine resin is the ingredient in the formula that makes it sticky. The oil keeps it pliable.
Reusable - Replaces cling film or foil that you throw away after one use. Wraps can simply be hand washed to use again and again.
Compostable - Pop it in your compost. Mother Nature knows what to do with it!
The basics - With the warmth of your hands mold the wrap around your food or dish. With a little pressure the wraps will naturally stick to themselves. To cover a bowl, create multiple pleats. Place the wrapped item in the fridge and the wrap will firm right up.
Note: do not use for raw meat and fish. Keep from heat sources; do not microwave.
Cleaning your Beeswax wrap - Hand wash under the tap with cold water using your fingertips. If soiled, use a few eco-friendly soap suds to clean. Shake off excess water and set to dry. Once dry, fold and place in a drawer to store.
How long will it last ? - You should be able to reuse your wrap for a year and more, depending on how much it is used. Wraps can be "rubbed" with a dry cloth to revive the "stick" effect.
A tip or two for food storage - for a few acidic fruits : Lemon, Lime, Pineapple and Grapefruit, place your cut item in a bowl and cover it by pleating a beeswax wrap to keep the fruit from touching the cut side of the fruit.
Your beeswax wrap also does a good job in the freezer - Try it out with bread or firm cookie dough. To save the time, make a larger batch of dough to use over several weeks.
