Beeswax Food Wraps

What are Beeswax Wraps?

Beeswax wraps are made of cloth which has been impregnated or coated with a pliable mixture of beeswax, tree resin and oil.  This makes the cloth flexible and slightly sticky so that is can be used as a substitute for plastic wrap.  As beeswax wraps are breathable, they are perfect for wrappings foods without making them wet and creating mold.

 

Using beeswax wraps is a easy and planet friendly way to eliminate the use of single use plastics like cellophane or plastic wrap.  Its as easy as warming the wrap in your hands and applying a little pressure to shape the wrap around the item.  They are great for transporting and storing snacks, fruits and vegetables and for use as lids on containers.

The beeswax wraps are made here at the farm in Roblin, Ontario using 100% organic cotton, beeswax collected from our hives, natural pine resin and organic jojoba oil.  

How to use and care for Beeswax Wraps

Unwrap the beeswax wraps and warm the wrap in your hands. The warmth of your hands allows the wrap to be pliable and slightly tacky or sticky so that it is able to be shaped and will cling to the item or container. Assitance (such as a rubber band) can be used to hold the wrap in placed. 

 

After every use, wash the wrap in cool water with mild dishwashing soap.

The beeswax wraps, when cared for correctly, should last for 6 months or more.  Once the pliability or tackiness of the wrap disappears, the wrap can be composted.

What not to do with Beeswax Wraps

DO NOT microwave or heat the beeswax wrap. 

DO NOT wash the beeswax wrap in hot water, washing machine/dryer, or dishwasher. 

DO NOT use a beeswax wrap on raw fish, poultry or meat.
