Set of 3 handmade Beeswax Food Wraps help move you toward a more sustainable kitchen by replacing plastic wrap in many situations. Two wraps are 9″ x 10″ and larger, one wrap is 12″ x 12″. Beeswax Food Wraps can be reused many times over if treated with care. Wraps stick to themselves, warm with your hand for a faster seal. Ideal for wrapping cheese, fruits and vegetables, sandwiches, covering bowls, plates and leftover dishes. Beeswax wraps are easy to mold around odd shapes, and may extend the shelf life of cheese and cut fruits. Beeswax wraps allow cheese to breathe and prevent food from absorbing other flavors.
Beeswax wraps are not air tight and aren’t suitable for highly perishable or very wet items like raw meat.
To clean simply wipe with a warm soapy cloth to remove mess or dirt. Rinse and allow to air dry. Don’t ruin them with heat, the wax will melt. After 6 months to a year, you can refresh your wrap with a hair dryer and wax candle, or allow to compost gracefully.
Our wraps are made with prewashed cotton fabric, local WV beeswax when available, commercial beeswax, pine resin, and coconut oil.
