SustainableSG Beeswax Wrap is made of GOTS-Certified organic cotton, beeswax, jojoba oil and tree resin. Jojoba oil is reported to have antimicrobial and antifungal/insecticidal properties. Combination of these ingredients create a food wrap with natural antibacterial properties, making the wrap reusable.
SustainableSG Beeswax Wraps replace plastic cling wraps that is commonly used to cover bowls, containers, cheese wraps, fruits and etc. It can be used to wrap fruits or even sandwiches instead of using plastic bags.
Use the warmth of your hand to wrap Sustainable beeswax wraps over the food, bowl, mug or fruits. It will hold and seal within couple of seconds after it cools down. You can use the wraps to wrap cheese, vegetables, bread, fruits, baked products and fresh herbs. Beewax is in fact waterproof, thus it helps to protect the food from getting wet, at the same time keeping the flavour and freshness of your food.
Yes, it is perfectly normal for the wraps to be sticky as it is coated with a layer of beeswax. You will be smell a slight sweet scent from the beeswax when newly opened. However, the scent will fade off after the few washes.
We have been using the beeswax ourselves and we have not encountered the scent being transferred to the food although the beeswax wraps do have a slight scent when newly opened .
Firstly, you can rub both of your hands together to create some warmth before trying to wrap the beeswax wrap around the object. SustainableSG Beeswax Wrap works well on most materials. Wrapping on plastic might be slightly tricky.
Please use hand wash with cool water with mild soap if necessary. Strong soap with ethanol or chemical based cannot be used as it will affects the functions of the wrap. Please do not use water that is above 60 degrees Celsius as it will melt the beeswax too. Rinse off and hang it to dry like a handkerchief after wash. You can store your beeswax wraps in a cool, dry place such as dish dryer or the kitchen drawer.
Sustainable Beeswax Wraps are strongly not recommended for use with raw meat or fish, as it should not be washed with hot water.
No, beeswax wraps are not allowed to be used in a microwave as the wax will melt and come off from the fabric which will affect the basic functions of the wraps. We do not recommend the wraps to be in contact with anything above 60 degree Celsius or 140 Fahrenheit.
However, beeswax wrap can be placed into the freezer although we do not recommend for a long period exceeding 5 days.
SustainableSG Beeswax Wraps can last for as long as 15 months with proper care. Number of usage is also a consideration too. As time passes, the wraps will become thinner and soft, not being able to stick to itself. Don’t throw it away as you can still recycle the fabric for other purposes!
