Use your Beeswax Wrap to wrap cheese, vegetables, bread, fruit, fresh herbs, and baked goods. Beeswax Wrap is not recommended for use with raw meat.
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY BEE’S WRAP?
Wash your Beeswax Wrap in cool water with a mild dish soap. (Avoid sources of heat, such as hot water and microwaves.) Air dry, fold and store in a drawer or in a basket on the counter. The beeswax and jojoba oil have antibacterial qualities that help to keep your food fresh and allow you to use the Bee’s Wrap again and again.
CAN I USE BEE’S WRAP IN THE FREEZER?
Yes! Beeswax Wrap keeps food fresh in the freezer for 2-3 weeks. Since your wraps are naturally breathable, we recommend you check on your food after this time to ensure its freshness. Great for freezing pizza dough and baked goods.
HOW LONG DOES BEE’S WRAP LAST?
Beeswax Wrap lasts for up to a year with proper care and regular usage. You’ll know your wrap has reached the end of its useful life in the kitchen when it has worn thin and soft and has trouble sticking to itself. At this time, you can cut your wrap into strips and add to your compost pile, or use as a natural and effective fire starter.
DOES BEE’S WRAP HAVE A SCENT?
Yes. When you first open your package of Beeswax Wrap you will smell the beeswax. The scent will fade after the first few uses and washes, until you can no longer detect it. The beeswax scent will change with the season in which it was harvested. Beeswax carries the scent of the flowers from which the bees harvested pollen. Most of us enjoy the scent, but there are a few people who are more sensitive to beeswax and do not prefer it.
