We are here to help you get started on your journey without cling film with beeswax wraps!
HOW TO USE YOUR BEESWAX WRAPS
- Mould wrap firmly around food or container with the warmth and pressure from your hands.
- For hygiene purposes, avoid direct contact with raw meat. Instead, put them in a bowl and cover with wrap.
- Acidic fruits, harsh soap and scrubbing will accelerate the wear of the wax coating and shorten it's lifespan.
- Do not microwave.
Our wraps are breathable. They are great for storing cheese as it does not form condensation and make your cheese soggy like plastic wraps. The antibacterial properties of beeswax and tree resin also slows down the formation of mold.
FRUITS & VEGETABLES
Think of them as the 'skin' of a fruit that keeps its content fresh and breathable. Your fruits and vegetables will stay fresh for longer.
Did you know that beeswax wraps clings well to most material in your kitchen? We've used them on porcelain, glass, metal, wood, and even coconut bowls. The key is to use a sturdy container that you can mould your hands firmly around. They are more tricky around flimsy container as you cannot press firmly to cling.
JARS & BOTTLES
The wax layer makes the wrap water resistant. While not suitable as water bottle lid replacement in preventing spills when out, they do a good job in keeping leftover drinks in the refrigerator and as a replacement lid for storing dried goods in jars.
We travel with our wraps! They come in handy for farmer's market, picnic, and storing used soap bar (pat dry soap using a towel to absorb excess moisture and wrap with our beeswax wrap).
HOW TO CLEAN YOUR BEESWAX WRAPS
After each use, clean your wraps and allow to air dry before storing in a cool clean place. If your house is warm, you can store them in the refrigerator.
Depending on how dirty your wraps are, you can clean them using one of these methods:
- Wipe clean with a damp towel: suitable for lightly soiled wraps.
- Rinse under cold water: suitable for wraps that comes into contact with sauces and needs a wash.
- Rinse in cold soapy water: suitable for oily or heavily soiled wraps.
- Do not use hot water as it would melt the wax.
- Excessive use of detergent will wear the wax out faster.
- Harsh scrubbing will destroy the wax layer and causes it to flake.
