BEESWAX WRAP FAQS

How do they work?

Beeswax is a natural preservative. The wrap will form a tight seal around food or containers, keeping food fresh. The warmth of your hands will form the wrap to your food. Once you let go, it will keep its shape.

What are these made of?

The wraps are cotton fabric coated with a mixture of beeswax, pine resin, and jojoba oil. 

What foods can I cover? What foods should I not cover?

The wraps are excellent covers for fruit, cheese, veggies, bread, and the like. The wraps can be placed right on the food, or to cover a container. Do not use to cover raw meat or anything too messy. You'll just end up with a lot of clean-up on your hands.

How long do the wraps last?

9-12 months with regular use. Eventually the washing, rinsing, etc. will begin to remove the wax. If one seems to have lost its stickiness, you can give it a refresh by warming it with a blow dryer until its shine reappears. We hope to upload a video of this process soon. If you notice areas of exposed cotton, then the wrap will no longer do its job. If you lose one in the bottom of your drawer, though, do not worry. Beeswax lasts years when left alone so most likely it will work like new when you try it out. Once a wrap has worn out, add it to your compost pile! Or, if you can't bring yourself to do that, scroll down a bit.

What do I need to do for care?

After use, rinse with water and, if necessary, mild soap. Then hang or set on drying rack to dry. Once dry, fold back up or wrap something else. Heat is the wax's kryptonite, so do not microwave or expose to excess heat.

Can I freeze them?

Yes. They work well in the freezer for up to two weeks. After that, you may want to eat that item up. (Feel free to invite us for dinner if you need.) We have enjoyed bread after four frozen weeks but haven't tested every food yet!The wraps will work fine again after thawing.
