WHAT ARE BEESWAX FOOD WRAPS?
Beeswax wrap is one of the newest trends in reducing waste in the home.
Instead of using disposable plastics like cling wrap to cover food, beeswax wrap can be reused over and over again.
These sheets are handmade from cotton infused with beeswax, jojoba oil, and tree resin, which have antibacterial properties.
HOW TO USE BEESWAX WRAPS?
The material is a moldable texture very easy to work with when wrapping over or around food to keep the freshness
of the food and keep out external influences.
You can use it directly on half of the fruit, to cover a jar or a pitcher or to wrap a sandwich or a snack.
Take the cloth and using the warmth of your hands wrap the cloth around the food item or container.
The breathable and at the same time insulating beeswax food wrap works fine for an overnight rising dough and it is ideal to cover fermenting food.
It is perfect to wrap your homemade bread dough.
What you better not do:
Do not use the wrap on warm food, so leave leftovers cool down before placing the wrap over them.
Avoid high temperatures, direct heat and keep it away from fire and any source of heat.
Do not use the wrap on fresh meat or fish.
Do not use the wrap in the oven, microwave or dishwasher.
Avoid using knives on the wrap as it might damage the wax.
HOW TO CLEAN BEESWAX WRAPS?
Always wash your beeswax wrap in cold water only.
You can use natural dish soap and a soft sponge and leave them dripping off to dry.
You can store your wrap rolled up or folded.
