The Many Uses of Wax Wraps

Did you know it's almost impossible to recycle cling film or sandwich bags?

Beeswax wraps and vegan wax wraps are a natural eco-friendly alternative to cling film and tin foil for wrapping food or covering bowls and jars. They help keep food fresh, are naturally anti-bacterial, can be reused, refreshed and are compostable.

Beeswax wraps can feel quite expensive, here are various uses to make the most of the investment when you make the switch!

Wax wrap care

There is one rule when it comes to looking after your wax wraps- Do not scrub your beeswax wraps under hot water beeswax wraps, need care so they can be reused again and again. Instead, gently clean them under cold water with soap and hang them to dry

or wipe clean with a damp cloth.

Are your wraps still looking tired and frayed? When you can no longer rewax them pop them into the compost (they are all-natural and fully biodegradable) or use them as fire starters/lighters.

If you want to learn to make your own check our upcoming workshops. we will be at st Margarets house in Bethnal Green, East London on the 27th of October 2021.
