Instructions for making beeswax wraps
- First, set your iron to a low to medium setting
- Place a sheet of baking paper or a reusable silicon mat on the ironing board
- Place your fabric of choice onto the baking paper/silicon mat and sprinkle grated beeswax onto the fabric. Remember: less is more!
- Place another sheet of baking paper/silicon mat on top of the fabric and wax
- Iron the top of the baking paper/silicon mat to melt the beeswax all over the fabric (be careful not to allow the wax to ooze out of the baking paper/silicon mat as this will ruin your ironing board)
- Using a basting brush, brush the wax over the edges to ensure a clean corner finish
- Carefully lift the beeswax wrap off the baking paper/silicon mat and hang it on a piece of string or hold it up for 30 seconds.
