How do I wash my Beeswax wrap, and can I use a dishwasher?

Beeswax Wraps  should not be placed in the microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, or over hot dishes.

Doing so will result in the loss and destruction of the necessary wax coating.

Where does your Beeswax come from?

We’ve built a beautiful relationship with one of the finest apiarists in Australia, and they are right here in northern NSW. We wanted to be sure that only authentic ACO Certified Organic Beeswax is used in our ingredients in an effort to honour our precious bees. 

Where does your cotton come from?

We use (GOTS) Certified Organic cottons and dyes.

The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria. They are backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.

We chose to only do business with fabric suppliers holding the GOTS certification because of the environmental and social commitments they are held to. 

Only textile products that contain a minimum of 70% organic fibres can become GOTS certified. All chemical inputs such as dyestuffs and auxiliaries used must meet certain environmental and toxicological criteria. The choice of accessories is limited in accordance with ecological aspects as well. A functional waste water treatment plant is mandatory for any wet-processing unit involved and all processors must comply with social criteria. The key criteria of GOTS, its quality assurance system and the principles of the review and revision procedure are summarised in this section.

 

Can I cut my beeswax wrap?

Yes! We cut them all the time. A sharp pair of scissors should do the trick. 

Will Beeswax stick to my food?

We have found that beeswax does not tend to stick to its contents. Unless they are too hot of course!

We suggest steering clear of the hot stuff, until it’s cooled down a bit.

How do I refresh and revive my beeswax wrap?

The best way to revive a beeswax wrap is with a set of tongs and a hair dryer or a heat gun if you have one.

We’ve found this to be the simplest method to bring your beeswax wrap back to life.

We hang ours up with clothes pins or magnets, and just run the heat over them until the wax melts.  We suggest refreshing them anytime you start to notice increased loosening wax as the best method get them to last as long as possible.
