Let us look at the top 7 benefits beeswax wraps can offer to your household.
Long lasting freshness
Beeswax wraps are completely breathable, in a good way! They do not make your food sweat, dry out, or lock in unnecessary moisture. By being breathable, beeswax wraps will slow down the rate of mould growth, it is like putting an extra skin on your vegetables.
Beeswax wraps are incredibly versatile. From wrapping sandwiches for school lunches to covering bowls of leftover food. You can use these wraps as lids on drink bottles or your carafe if outdoors. Beeswax wraps are slightly heavier than plastic cling wrap and so can be placed gently over open containers in the kitchen without the worry of them flying away. Great for picnics, busy kitchens and even a great wrap cover for that kebab!
There is no need to throw these wraps in the washing machine or even dishwasher, thanks to the naturally occurring water-resistance of beeswax, the wraps automatically have a slight barrier to spills. However, if there is a dirty spot on your beeswax wrap, all you need to do is give it a quick wash under cold water with mild detergent and it is good to go all over again. With proper care your beeswax wrap can last up to 12 months.
Our incredible beeswax wraps can be used with all types of food in the freezer time and time again. The wraps take to the freezer without any issues in keeping the integrity of the material and beeswax. There is no need to worry about freezer burn as the wraps can completely protect your produce. However, if you plan to store your produce longer than 1 month, we suggest a more airtight option.
