Wax wraps help reduce the amount of packaging waste we produce, they keep your food fresher for longer, and they don’t contain any plastic. Plus, they're washable, reusable, and breathable, and have antibacterial properties. They can adhere firmly to themselves and other things, and they also fold up flat so they don't take up much space when not in use.
It is produced with fairly-produced organic cotton, organic local beeswax, sustainably harvested damar resin, and organic jojoba oil. It is the most earth-friendly product.
*Beeswax contains small amounts of propolis, so be aware of that if you have allergies.
All items are made locally in Berlin with love.
How to use
Place what you want to wrap up onto the wrap and fold it up around it, then hold your hands on the seams for a few seconds. When you clean, simply wipe your Wax Wrap with a damp sponge (and a bit of dish soap if necessary), rinse under cold water, and let it air dry. Don't put your wax wrap in the dishwasher, microwave, or washing machine. But the fridge and freezer are fine!
After a year or so you'll probably notice your Wax Wrap doesn't stick as well as it used to. That's because the tree resin, which gives it it's stickiness, gradually gets washed away when you scrub it clean. That's why we recommend you scrub gently when cleaning your wrap.
If you want to prolong the life of your now not-so-sticky wrap you can freshen it up by putting it in the oven (with baking paper underneath) for a few minutes at low heat (70-100 C). Watch it until you see your Wax Wrap glistening — this means the mixture has redistributed and bits of tree resin that were stuck between the fibers will have come to the surface, making your wrap sticky again. After a few minutes, remove the tray and immediately take your Wax Wrap off of it, picking it up carefully by the corners. Wave it back and forth over the tray for a minute until it is cool and dry. After that, it’s ready to be used again. You can repeat this process a few more times in the coming months as needed. Once you notice freshening up your wrap in the oven no longer helps, you can re-coat your Wax Wrap with Beewax.
