Caring for your Beeswax Food Wraps

Beeswax wraps are a great alternative to plastic wrap! 

But, I always get asked "How do I care for my beeswax wraps??" 

Use your wraps to store anything from fruit, veggies, cheese, bread. Anything that you would normally put in a plastic bag, or plastic wrap. 

Wash with cool soapy water, and they should last you about a year. 

Stay away from any raw meat products and heat! Don't store them in the cabinet next to your stove, or after cooking your Thanksgiving Turkey all day you will realize that your wax wraps melted! 

If you are using your wax wraps on the  same item over and over again you may get some wax build up in one area, or a bit of wear down. This is so easy to fix. Just get a piece of Aluminum Foil and pop them in a warm oven (wax melts around 150 degrees) for a few minutes. The wax will melt and redistribute to get more useful months out of your wraps.

When they have come to the end of their lives my wraps are made with 100% cotton so they are compostable (just cut into small pieces) and biodegradable. They should last you about a year.
