How do you get the smell out of beeswax wraps?

If your beeswax wraps develop a strong odor, there are a few steps you can take to try to remove the smell:

Wash with soap and water: Start by washing the wrap with cool water and a mild soap or detergent. Use your hands to gently scrub the surface of the wrap, being careful not to damage the wax coating. Rinse thoroughly and let the wrap air dry.

Soak in vinegar: If the odor persists after washing, you can try soaking the wrap in a solution of equal parts water and white vinegar. Let the wrap soak for 5-10 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with cool water and let it air dry.

Sprinkle with baking soda: Another option is to sprinkle baking soda on the surface of the wrap and let it sit for a few hours. The baking soda can help absorb odors. After a few hours, shake off the excess baking soda and wash the wrap with soap and water. Rinse thoroughly and let the wrap air dry.

Sun dry: Finally, you can try sun drying your beeswax wrap. Lay the wrap flat on a clean, dry surface and place it in a sunny spot for a few hours. The sun and fresh air can help remove any lingering odors.

It's important to note that some odors may be difficult to remove completely, especially if the wrap has been exposed to strong-smelling foods like onions or garlic. If you've tried these methods and the odor persists, it may be time to replace the wrap.
