Handmade in small batches by our supplier in Germany, these large beeswax food wraps are made with organic cotton fabric and coated with a unique blend of Black Forest beeswax, organic coconut and jojoba oil and a little pine resin.
The wraps can be used to store fresh fruit and vegetable pieces, or to carry sandwiches. Use them to seal containers in the fridge or anywhere you would normally utilize cling film or plastic food wraps.
It has been estimated that it can take up to 1000 years for synthetic plastics such as cling film to break down completely, even in ideal conditions. Using these reusable wraps not only reduces your household waste, it helps the environment by being completely compostable at the end of it's usable life. Each one, with careful use, can be used for up to a year.
Fold the waxed cloth around the food or container and press it flat to seal from the air.
After use, simply wipe the cloth clean or occasionally if necessary you can rinse the cloth in COLD water and leave to dry naturally.
Do not use warm water or heat the cloth (for example in a microwave) or you risk dissolving the waxed surface completely.
All of the ingredients used in this product are certified organic and food safe. The wrap has a distinctive honey fragrance from the wax: this will fade over time and will not affect food.
With care, your wax wrap could replace all of your single plastic food use at home for an entire year.
