BEESWAX WRAPS CARE INSTRUCTIONS
What are Beeswax Wraps
Beeswax Wraps are created from natural beeswax, organic jojoba oil, and tree resin infused into cotton fabric by hand. Each ingredient was selected for its preservative, antimicrobial and biodegradable properties. As an eco-friendly alternative to plastic wrap, Beeswax wraps are reusable, will last up to a year with proper care and use, and are compostable.
How to Use
Beeswax wraps are great for wrapping items normally stored in plastic wrap, like vegetables, cheese, bread, sandwiches, snacks, etc. It is not recommended for use with raw meat or greasy foods.
Use the warmth of your hands to press and mold wraps firmly around the food item or container to be stored. Place the wrapped item in the refrigerator or take them with you on the go for sandwiches and snacks. The natural ingredients respond to the environment so beewax wraps may feel softer, stickier in warmer temperatures and harder, less sticky when cool. There may be small lumps and marks on the surface which occur naturally during hand making process.
How to Clean
Wash your beeswax wraps in cool water with mild dish soap. Rinse and air dry before storing. Alcohol based soaps will dissolve the natural coating so check before washing.
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, it is best to keep wrapped items such as sandwiches, cut vegetables, fruit or cheese, in a cooler with an ice pack.
