Frequently Asked Questions about Beeswax Wraps

What is beeswax food wrap?

Beeswax food wrap is an all natural, eco-friendly alternative to plastic wrap.

All our wraps are made by hand using 100% cotton, Canadian beeswax, tree rosin and jojoba oil.

Is beeswax wrap safe?

Unlike plastic wraps, which can release toxins when they come into contact with food, beeswax wrap is made from organic cotton and coated with beeswax, organic jojoba oil, and tree resin, all of which are food-safe materials. 

How do I use beeswax wrap?

In order to "activate" the wrap and to get it to be at it's prime "stickiness", we recommend using the heat of your hands in order to warm the wrap before you use it. This involves manoeuvring the wrap between your fingers and using the heat of your hands to press and help it stick to the edge of whatever surface you are trying to adhere it to.

Tip: Beeswax wraps stick best to themselves.

Although beeswax has naturally antimicrobial properties, we don't recommend them for use on raw meat.

Fruits, vegetables, sandwiches, snacks, and cheeses are all good.

How do I clean my beeswax wrap?

Rinse with cold water or wipe with cool, damp cloth. Use mild soap, if necessary.

Avoid hot water, as it will melt the beeswax. Hang or lay flat to dry.

How long will my beeswax wrap last?

Beeswax wraps can last a year or more if they are cared for properly. Use a beeswax refresh bar to refresh and extend the life of your old wraps significantly.
