Care Instructions - Beeswax Wraps

Beeswax wraps can be washed and used over and over again. This helps to save the environment and reduce waste.

Beeswax Wraps are made from natural ingredients that respond to their environment. If it is warmer they typically feel softer, if colder they may feel harder and not as sticky.

How to Use Beeswax Wrap

Use the warmth of your hands to press and mould your wrap firmly around the item to be stored. Place the wrapped item in the refrigerator or take them with you on the go for your sandwiches and rolls.

How to Clean Beeswax Wrap

Wash your beeswax wraps in cool water with eco-friendly dish soap. Rinse and air dry before storing in your kitchen drawer. The natural coating on your wrap will dissolve in alcohol so check your dishwashing liquid before washing your wraps.

Avoid Heat

Because beeswax wraps are made from natural beeswax they need to be kept away from all sources of heat, including hot water, steam, hot food and flames. Wait until the food is cool and then cover with it with your wrap. Avoid putting them in the dishwasher, microwave oven, or anywhere they can get hot.

Summer Time Caution

Avoid leaving beeswax wraps in hot places such as direct sunlight or in a parked car. In hot weather, please keep wrapped items such as sandwiches, cut vegetables, fruit or cheese, in an esky with an ice pack.

How Long Does a Beeswax Wrap Last

If you follow these care instructions, your beeswax wrap will last for years to come. With day to day use, stains and creases may appear, but these don’t affect your wraps ability to do their job.
