Our reusable beeswax wraps are extremely versatile and can be used in much the same way as traditional plastic wrap. In fact, the possibilities are endless! They’ll cover bowls of leftovers, wrap up fruit, vegetables and salad, pack snacks, keep bread fresh for longer, and even store cheese.
Heading on vacation? Our beeswax wraps aren’t just your favorite kitchen companion, but are ideal for zero-waste travel
as they can be used to transport solid shampoo and conditioner bars.
Our reusable beeswax food bags
also make the perfect sandwich bags for picnics or school lunches.
To use your new wraps, just place one over or around the item you’re looking to preserve. Using the warmth of your hands, gently mold it into place; the beeswax will naturally stick to the container or itself, creating a seal against air and bacteria that will keep food fresh.
For the best results, use a wax wrap that’s much larger than the objects or food you’re wrapping. For example, a small wax wrap should completely cover the open half of a sliced onion or lime to be effective. When covering bowls or plates, make sure the wrap covers the mouth of the container and reaches at least halfway down its sides; this is necessary to create a successful seal.
Most importantly: don’t use them with anything that’s very hot, as warm temperatures can melt the wax right off the wrap! This means you can’t use them in the microwave, oven or near naked flames.
