How does beeswax cloth keep my food fresh?

They adhere easily to surfaces and form an airtight seal that keeps food fresh.

How do you clean a beeswax cloth?

After use, you can rinse the beeswax cloth with cold water and mild detergent. Do not use hot water as this can melt the beeswax. Allow the cloth to air dry and it is ready to use again.

How long does a beeswax wrap last?

Beeswax wraps are reusable. With proper care they can be used for several months. If the cloth wears out over time, you can recycle or compost it as it is made from natural materials.

Can I also use the beeswax cloth in the freezer/compartment?

You can use beeswax wraps in the freezer, but storing them in the freezer/compartment for a long time can cause freezer burn. Therefore, caution applies here.

Which temperatures are suitable for my beeswax cloth?

It is important to note that beeswax wraps are not heat resistant (microwave) and are not suitable for contact with hot surfaces or liquids. The wax can melt and become damaged at high temperatures.

How do I store my beeswax cloth?

Beeswax wraps should be stored in a cool and dry place, preferably at room temperature. Direct sunlight and heat can melt the beeswax or dry out the cloth, causing it to lose its adhesive properties.

If you fold or roll up beeswax wraps, make sure they are sealed airtight to prevent them from drying out.

Avoid storing beeswax cloths with sharp or rough objects as these could damage the cloth. Instead, place them in a separate compartment or container.

Over time, beeswax wraps can absorb discoloration from food, which is normal. This does not affect the performance of the wipes. If you find the discoloration bothersome, you can try removing it by soaking it in a mixture of cold water and baking soda.

Which foods are not suitable for beeswax wraps?

They are not suitable for fatty foods, meat or fish, as wax components could be transferred to the food. The beeswax wraps can also take on the taste and smell of the food.
