Cleaning and Caring for your Beeswax Food Wraps
No matter your chosen use for your Beeswax food wraps, when it comes to cleaning your new kitchen tool, it can often feel intimidating and slightly worrying. Cleaning your new wraps should not be a worrying task, we explain to unsure users how best to clean them, allowing the wraps to look their best for years to come.
After using your Beeswax food wraps, whether to ice a cake or package your homemade sandwich, wash them by using a mild dishwashing soap and cool water. After washing in cool water, allow your wrap to hand dry before placing into a kitchen drawer to keep safe.
Re-pasteurising your Beeswax Food Wraps
Re-pasteurising is essential for all Beeswax food wraps and should take place once every few months.
To re-pasteurise your wraps, set your oven to 80°C before placing your wraps on baking paper on a baking tray and popping into the oven. Leave your wrap in the oven for a maximum of 3 minutes. By conducing this re-pasteurising for at least once a month, your Beeswax food wraps can last up to a whole year and beyond.
Disposing of your Beeswax Food Wraps
For users who cherish their Beeswax food wraps, you may notice creases appearing in the wraps, typically where the wraps have been folded. These creases are part of the natural ageing process and will not interfere with the design and function of your wraps.
When your Beeswax food wraps have reached the end of their life and are no longer wrapping and performing the way that they once did, no need to pop your wraps in the bin, instead compost them for the natural end that they deserve.
