How hygienic are beeswax wraps?

Beeswax wraps can be hygienic for storing food, as long as they are used and cared for properly.

To maintain good hygiene, it's important to wash beeswax wraps regularly, especially after storing foods that can leave a residue, such as cheese or raw meat. They should be washed in cool water with a gentle soap or detergent and then allowed to air dry. Beeswax wraps should not be washed in hot water or put in the dishwasher, as this can cause the wax coating to melt and damage the wrap.

It's also important to avoid using beeswax wraps to store foods that can spoil quickly or harbor harmful bacteria, such as raw meat or dairy products. These foods should be stored in airtight containers or wrapped in plastic wrap or aluminum foil.
