SuperBee Wax Wraps are eco-friendly alternatives to plastic wrap that can be used again and again. With good care, our wax wraps can easily last for one year or more!
There are a few things to keep in mind while taking care of your wrap, which is made of cotton fabric, beeswax, organic coconut oil and tree resin.
How to clean wax wraps
Just like a plate, wipe your Wax Wrap down with a sponge or cloth, using a bit of warm water and eco-friendly detergent. Rinse off and leave to dry.
How to store wax wraps
We generally store our wraps in a closed dry space or in their own little basket. You can also store them in a drawer with your tea towels or make an extra shelf for them.
How to revive wax wraps
If your wax wrap has been getting a lot of use and looking a little crumpled and tired, there’s an easy way to make it good as new.
We had some friends make this video for us, so that people can see what our Wax Wraps look like after one year, and what you can do to make them bee-autiful again. Watch the video and read on below for directions.
- An old cookie sheet (warm wax can be messy and difficult to clean up so use a pan you don’t care about)
- A silicon baking mat
- An oven
- A place to hang your Wax Wrap
- Grated beeswax (optional)
- Pre-heat the oven to 140°C.
- Put a silicon baking mat down on the cookie sheet and Grab an old cookie sheet and lay your Wax Wrap on top of the mat.
- Simply heat the pan in the oven keeping the door open and watch your wrap as the wax warms up, about 2-3 minutes.
- Once the wax on the wrap has re-melted, carefully take the wrap out by its corners and hang it up quickly before the wax dries.
- Once it’s cool – about 1 minute – your SuperBee Wax Wrap will be ready to use and look shiny and new!
If the wax has worn off in places, you can sparingly sprinkle some grated wax on the cotton before you heat the wrap in the oven.
Refreshing your wax wrap this way is really simple, and makes our product truly sustainable and reusable for a very long time.
