How to use your Beeswax Food Wraps

Congratulations, you ordered some Beeswax Food Wraps, your first step to reducing the amount of disposable plastic wrap you may use. So the next step is to start using them, but how do you use Beeswax Food Wraps

Use for:

Beeswax Food Wraps can be used instead of plastic wrap for most times in your kitchen; fruits and vegetables, leftovers, bread and baked goods, cheese. You can use them directly onto food items or use them to seal off a bowl or tray. 

Do Not use for:

Beeswax does have a few restrictions, do not use it directly on raw meats of raw fish as the liquids will stain the cotton fabric. The other restriction is items that are still hot, any high heat might melt the wax more than desired. After your food cools down to room temperature, you should be good. 


Before you use your Beeswax Food Wraps, activate the wax. This is simple: cringle the wrap into a ball in your hands, hold for a sec to warm it up, then pull it apart! You are ready to go! Moving the beeswax around and warming it up slightly makes the wax tackier, more able to hold to itself or to a bowl. 

Directly on Food:

This is great to save fruits and vegetables, cheeses, or baked goods. You can just place the food item in the cloth, fold the wrap over and twist the ends together. 

Cover a Bowl:

When you just receive a new set of wraps they will be very tacky, this will fade after a few washes. Thereafter you will use the heat of your hands to activate the wax to stick to itself. Place your Beeswax wraps over a bowl or tray, fold the ends over and fold the ends overlapping onto itself. Hold with your hands for a second or two warmings the wax. As the wraps cool they will hold their new shape firmly. 

Make a Sandwich Pocket:

You can fold the wraps into a pocket or an envelope, perfect for sandwiches or snacks. These pouches are also great for candies or nuts.
