How do you use beeswax wraps?

Here are the basic steps for using beeswax wraps:

Choose the right size: Choose a beeswax wrap that is large enough to fully cover the food item you want to store.

Warm the wrap: Hold the beeswax wrap in your hands and warm it up for a few seconds by rubbing it between your palms. This will help soften the beeswax and make the wrap more pliable.

Cover the food: Place the beeswax wrap over the food item or container and use your hands to mold it around the food, pressing down firmly to create a seal.

Store the food: Store the wrapped food in the fridge or pantry as needed.

Clean the wrap: After using the beeswax wrap, wash it in cool water with a gentle soap or detergent. Then, allow it to air dry completely before using it again.

Refresh the wrap: Over time, the beeswax coating on the wrap may start to wear off or become less sticky. To refresh the wrap, place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and heat it in the oven at a low temperature (around 150-170°F or 65-75°C) for a few minutes. This will melt the beeswax coating and redistribute it evenly over the fabric.

Note: Beeswax wraps are not suitable for storing wet or juicy foods, and should not be used in the microwave, oven, or dishwasher.
