How Often Do You Wash Beeswax Wraps?

Beeswax wraps should be washed after every use with cold water only. (Hot water can damage your wax) If you have food stuck to your wrap, lather it with mild hand soap and use either your hand or a soft sponge to ensure it’s nice and clean.

Air dry your beeswax wraps by draping over a dish rack or clothesline. Alternatively, you can pat dry with a fresh tea towel.

Once your wrap is nice and dry, fold it up and keep it in a drawer, or store them together in a glass jar on your kitchen counter.

What are The Pros and Cons of Beeswax Wraps?

Beeswax wraps are designed to be used for cold food such as; salad bowls, fruit and vegetables, sandwiches and leftovers. Therefore, it’s best to avoid hot or oily food as they can shorten the life of your wraps. They are not intended to be used for raw meat.

Our wraps are strong and durable, but washing by hand is the way to go. Dishwashers, washing machines, and microwaves can cause permanent damage.

Caring for your wraps is easy, and should last around 12 months with regular use. Once your wax starts wearing and getting thin, you can refresh your wraps with DIY Wax Bars.

Alternatively, you can cut them up and use them for firelighters or throw them in your compost bin and start fresh!
