What are Beeswax Food Wraps Exactly?
Beeswax wraps are made of beeswax, and a type of fabric, usually cotton or hemp. It has antibacterial and antifungal properties, and because it is water tight, locks in moisture – but does not let it build up – while letting the food naturally breathe, something that plastic wraps will not do.
Beeswax wraps act like a natural barrier, a bit like a fruit’s skin protects its flesh. Most companies producing wraps also add other natural ingredients for more benefits: jojoba oil (antifungal as well) and tree resin (antibacterial and antiseptic) for instance.
You can use beeswax wraps to replace your plastic wraps and thus putting it around fruits, veggies, cheese, bread, etc. It is also great to seal containers with food, like bowls of salad in your fridge.
Just use your hands to mold the wrap around your food, their warmth will make the wrap grip tightly to the food or the container you are using.
Care and Maintenance
It is also easy to care for, just wash it with cold water so that the beeswax does not melt and a mild soap, and let air dry. Because it cannot be washed with hot water, the use of beeswax wraps for meat and fish is not recommended.
Why Use This instead of Plastic Wraps?
Beeswax wraps, on top of smelling like a walk between beehives, are biodegradable, compostable, and reusable. Can you say the same of plastic wraps?
We love beeswax wraps because they are natural, reduce waste, and are part of a global movement caring about sustainability and eco-friendliness!
