  • Start by cutting your fabric into your desired dimensions. It's good idea to cut a few different sizes, to use on different sized containers!
Next, for a bar of beeswax, you’ll need to grate some. You'll need about 2 tablespoons of grated beeswax per 12” square of fabric.

  • Preheat your oven to 200. Then place one of your fabric pieces onto a cookie sheet, and sprinkle the beeswax over the top. (You’ll want to use about double what is pictured) Then place your cookie sheet in the oven until the wax melts, which should only take about 5 minutes or so.

  • Once the wax is melted, use your paintbrush to spread the beeswax around the fabric, making sure it is evenly covered. Then hang the fabric up somewhere to cool, and it’s ready to use!

  • You can use the food wrap to cover bowls and plates, wrap sandwiches or block of cheese, or even fold it into a container for snacks. Each wrap should last several months, and if it gets soiled, simply hand wash it in cold water (warm water will melt the wax) and allow it to air dry.

    If the wrap starts to lose its’ grip over time, simply repeat this process to re-wax it, and it’ll be good as new! Not only will you be saving money over time, you’ll also be making a great choice for the environment!
