Caring for your Honeywraps
Each beeswax wrap should last about a year before you will need to replace or re-wax it.
To clean, simply knock or wipe off any food, wash in cold soapy water, then leave to drip dry on a towel.
Be careful not to heat your Honeywrap above 60 degrees as the natural beeswax will melt and leave a bit of a mess.
Honeywraps may behave differently at different temperatures, such as on a hot summer day they will be soft and easy to stick. On cold days or if your honeywrap has been sitting in the fridge, you may need to use the warmth of your hands to mould it and help it to stick.
Honeywraps are not suitable for the microwave, oven or dishwasher, as any heat will cause the beeswax to melt.
How Beeswax wraps are Eco-Friendly.
Honeywraps are made from 100% organic cotton with a blend of beeswax, tree resin and jojoba oil. These are all naturally occurring so not only are they non-toxic and therefore safe on your food, but once you are finished with your wraps, simply pop them into the compost bin.
Why choose Honeywrap?
Honeywrap is a small business run by three Auckland mums who are on a mission to reduce plastic waste. Since they began creating Beeswax wraps in 2013 they have saved the equivalent of over 20 million metres of plastic wrap ending up in landfill.
