Q: TO WHAT & HOW TO APPLY BEESWAX FOOD WRAPS
A: Use anywhere you would otherwise be using plastic, but not with raw meats.
SMALL WRAP - wrap the end of a cucumber, half a lemon or an avocado - even a small snack. Save your onion but not that smell!
MEDIUM WRAP - great to store cheese (my favourite application), wrap a muffin or cover a bowl.
LARGE WRAP – perfect to wrap a crusty loaf of bread and great to stop a bunch of fresh herbs from going slimy.
BUTTONED WRAP – build your lunch, set on the wrap and fold in the corners, toss string around the button and have the best-dressed sandwich in town!
Q: DO YOUR BEESWAX FOOD WRAPS HAVE A SMELL?
A: Yes! The sweet smell of beeswax. This smell can differ slightly from batch to batch as the nectar collected by the bees is influenced by the characteristics of the flowers within an 8km radius of the hive. However, your food will not take on the smell or taste of beeswax.
Q: HOW DO I CLEAN MY BEESWAX FOOD WRAP?
A: Wipe down with a damp cloth. If required, use a mild soap and rinse using cold water. Pat dry and fold to store.
Q: HOW LONG WILL MY BEESWAX FOOD WRAP LAST?
