What is Bee’s wrap made of?
Bee’s wrap is made of GOTS-certified organic cotton, sustainably sourced beeswax from the United States, organic jjoba oil and tree resin. This combination of ingredients creates a malleable food wrap that can be used again and again.
How is it used?
Use the warmth of your hands to wrap Bee’s wrap around a piece of food or over a bowl or casserole dish. When the Bee’s wrap cools (within seconds) it holds its seal. use your Bee’s wrap to wrap cheese, vegetables, bread, fruit, fresh herbs and baked goods. Bee’s wrap is not recommended for use with raw meat.
How do I care for my Bee’s wrap?
Wash your Bee’s wrap in cool water with a mild dish soap. Avoid sources of heat, such as hot water and microwaves. Air dry, fold and store in a drawer or in a basket on the counter. The beeswax and jojoba oil have antibacterial qualities that help your food fresh and allow you to use the Bee’s wrap again and again.
How long does Bee’s wrap last?
Bee’s wrap lasts for up to a year with proper care and regular usage.
Does Bee’s wrap have a scent?
Yes. When you first open your package of Bee’s wrap you will smell the beeswax. The scent will fade after the first few uses and washes, until you can no longer detect it. The beeswax scent will change with the season in which it was harvested. Beeswax carries the scent of the flowers from which the bees harvested pollen. Most of u enjoy the scent, but there are a few people who are more sensitive to beeswax and do not prefer it.
What size is best for my needs?
There are several sizes of Bee’s wrap. If you are new to the product, we recommend starting with our assorted set of three sizes, which includes one each of our small (17,5 x 20 cm), medium (25 x 27,5 cm) and large (33 x 35 cm). Experiment with these in your kitchen to determine which size is most useful for you.
Small (17,5 x 20 cm): wrap half a lemon, the end of a cucumber, half of an onion (Bee’s wrap won’t hold the smell), half of an avocado, a small bowl, carrot sticks or other snack items.
Medium (25 x 27,5 cm): cover a bowl, half of a sandwich, baked good, cheese, or half a cabbage or cantaloupe.
Large (33 x 35 cm): cover a large bowl, pie dish, celery, cheese, sandwich or half a water melon.
Bread wrap (43 x 58 cm): great for wrapping bread, large enough for a large loaf of sandwich bread or specialty breads. This wrap is great for covering dough that is rising, an extra large bowl or casserole dish, and also serves as a dough mat for rolling out pie crusts, cookie dough or other baked goods.
Baguette wrap (35,5 x 66 cm): perfect for keeping a baguette fresh. It keeps the crust a little crusty and the inside soft. We also love this size for wrapping stalks of celery.
Sandwich wrap (33 x 33 cm): perfect for building your sandwich, wrapping and then using as a placement. Also great for cheese, snacks, a few carrot sticks, a muffin, the possibilities are endless.
