To make our wraps we take 100% pure cotton and add 3 natural ingredients: beeswax, jojoba oil and tree resin. This coating allows the wraps to stick to themselves, not the food they’re protecting.
To wash our BeeKind beeswax wraps, simply rinse the wrap with cool water and gentle dish soap. You can use a cloth or sponge to wipe them down, then rinse off.
Once washed, the beeswax wraps need to air dry. Simply shake off the excess water and drape them over other drying dishes or your drying rack. You can also hang them up using a bull clip.
You don’t need to wring out the wrap. Keep them away from heat sources.
Once dry, gently fold or roll the beeswax wraps and store them in a drawer, basket or on a shelf.
Our beeswax wraps are very versatile and will last for up to a year with the right care.
As you use your beeswax wraps more and more, their texture will change and small marks and creases will appear. This isn’t a sign to get rid of them; it just means it’s time to refresh them.
If your beeswax wrap has been getting a lot of use and is looking a little crumpled and tired, there are easy ways to make it good as new.
- Pre-heat your oven to 100°C.
- Line a baking tray with grease proof paper to protect it. Melted wax can be messy!
- Make sure your grease proof layer is bigger than you wrap. If its a large wrap you can fold it to fit in. Place you wrap on top and place it in the oven for 2-3 min.
- When the wax is melted and the wrap is soft, take it out of the oven, lift the wrap and waft until cooled.
- Once its fully cooled its ready to use again and will look like new.
The Iron Method
- Turn your iron on high with the steam function off.
- Cover your ironing board with a large tea towel and large sheet of baking paper.
- Place your beeswax wrap on baking paper and add another sheet of baking paper on top.
- Move the iron around wrap until all the wax has melted.
- When finished, remove the baking paper, lift the wrap and waft until cooled.
- Eco-friendly firelighters! If the cotton on your wraps is faded and frayed, you probably can’t refresh your wraps anymore. Instead, you can cut them into strips, twist and use them as environmentally friendly firelighters. They are completely waterproof and slow burning, perfect for campfires, BBQs and firesides.
- Pop them in your compost. Our wraps are made of all-natural materials that will naturally biodegrade.
Beeswax wraps should not be used with raw meat fish or hot food.
You can wrap everything else to your heart’s content from soap to cheese to flowers!!
