How to use
Experience the best of fresh food at home.
With proper care, beeswax food wraps will last a year or longer. Cold water and mild dish soap is all you need to clean and maintain your beeswax food wraps. After rinsing, hang the wrap over your dish rack to let it air dry.
We always remind our clients at our farmers markets that our number one rule with beeswax food wraps is to avoid heat! After all, beeswax will melt so never put a beeswax food wrap in your oven or microwave, and never use hot water when cleaning a beeswax wrap.
Finally, we do not recommend for use with raw meat or uncooked seafood.
Often our clients at farmers markets ask about covering prepared food that is still hot. We always recommend waiting until the food has cooled to room temperature before covering with a beeswax wrap.
Why Beeswax Food Wraps?
Like honey, beeswax is naturally antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antifungal. We infuse locally sourced beeswax into cotton fabric and utilize the organic properties of beeswax to form a protective freshness barrier around food.
Lettuce and Avocado
Beeswax food wraps will extend the life of fruit and vegetables for longer.
For example, if a typical head of lettuce keeps for 5 to 8 days without beeswax, it can last closer to 12 to 15 days inside a beeswax food wrap.
We all know avocados turns brown within a few hours of cutting it in half, but if you wrap it in beeswax the other half will remain green and appetizing for days instead of hours.
Bread and Cheese
Wrap an entire loaf of freshly baked bread for the best way to keep bread fresh and nutritious without baking preservatives into the food.
Cheesemakers have been showing us the preservative benefits of beeswax for generations with the wax they use on the outside of large wheels of cheese. Beeswax food wraps wrap around any shape of cheese and can keep cheese fresh and delicious for longer.
Food Covers and Storage for Berries
Beeswax food wraps are also the perfect reusable cover for leftovers! We recommend waiting until hot food has cooled before covering with beeswax.
Store your berries in a glass or Pyrex dish with a beeswax cover, and double the freshness of your berries!
Hint: Try using glass containers to create windows so you can see what is inside the storage container.
