What are Beeswax wraps
Beeswax wraps are a great alternative to single use plastics. They are pieces of cotton fabric coated in wax, tree resin and jojoba oil ad they naturally stick together to keep your leftover food fresh.
Why we make Beeswax wraps
At Supra Endura we are always looking for products that are both beautiful and beneficial. We love Beeswax wraps because they are a sustainable alternative to plastic wrap. These reusable wraps are great to wrap fruits, vegetables, cheese, and bread. The natural material allows the food to breath and stay fresh. Each set features 3 original artworks. These fun and colorful printed wax wraps are made from all-natural ingredients: Cotton, Beeswax, Jojoba Oil and Tree Resin. Our colorful prints are made on GOTS certified organic Cotton and every Beeswax Wrap is FDA approved. The manufacturing of these wraps create very little waste and packaging is made of recycled paper.
How to use a Beeswax wrap:
Beeswax wraps are super easy, use the warmth of your hands to wrap around a piece of cheese, fruit or over a bowl. The wrap will cool in seconds and stay wrapped over your food. We suggest using your wrap for cheese, vegetables, bread, fruit, fresh herbs, and baked goods. We do not suggest using beeswax wraps to wrap raw meat, fish, or sauces.
How to clean beeswax wraps:
When you are finished using a beeswax wrap you can hand wash your wrap with mild dishwashing soap and cold water, and then let it hang to dry. For tougher stains use a gentle sponge, or brush to get stain out. You can store your wraps in a drawer and try to keep away from heated areas in your kitchen.
My Beeswax wraps are not wrapping around my food?
Your wax wrap may be too cold. Rub your hands together to make them warm and the gently rub your wax wraps between your hands. When you wrap around your food hold tightly until the wraps stick.
How long does a beeswax wrap last for?
Beeswax wraps typically last for 6- 8 months/ 100 uses but can also last for up to a year with proper care. Our suggestion for longer lasting wax wraps is only use them for the food suggested above and be diligent about cleaning. You can also mend wax wraps as well (see instructions below). You'll know your wrap has reached the end when it is worn thin and soft and has trouble sticking to itself. Our wax wraps are 100% biodegradable. To compost please cut into small strips and add to your compost. Old wax wraps can also be used as kindling for a campfire or a barbeque.
I have been using my wax wraps for a long time and there are marks and creases on them, how do I fix this?
To revitalize your wax wraps, place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and heat it in the oven at 170 degrees F with the oven door open for 1-2 minutes. Boom! Your beeswax and tree resin will remelt and the creases will be gone. Take it off the parchment paper and let it dry for 1-2 minutes then it is good to go.
I think my wax wraps are at the end of the line, and have really lost their stickiness, how do a I mend them?
You might notice your beeswax wraps are wearing thin. No worries, you can reapply the beeswax, tree resin and Jojoba oil. Using an iron and ironing board, take your wax wrap and place it on a large sheet of wax paper ( Make sure there is about 3” extra wax paper on each side). Next, add pellets of beeswax, a few drop of jojoba oil and pinch of pine resin. You will then place another piece of wax paper on top. Turn your iron on to the cotton setting, slowly and methodically run the iron over the wax paper. You should see the wax start to melt. You can lift the paper off and add more wax or rearrange the wax as needed. Once sufficiently and evenly coated you can take the top sheet of wax paper off and let the wax wrap dry.
