Have a question?
How do I wash my beeswax wrap, and can I use a dishwasher?

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

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

If you want to know how to wash a beeswax wrap, here is the best washing video:

Use cold water and some mild hand soap. Wash as you would your hands and simply hang or fold dry with a towel.


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.

Why is ACO Australian Certified Organic beeswax so important when making beeswax wraps?

By using only Australian Certified Organic (ACO) beeswax, we ensure that it is free from synthetic agricultural chemicals including pesticides, fungicides and herbicides.
Our beeswax comes from a beekeeper who looks after the bees, making sure the hives are chemical-free and pests that may affect the bees are treated naturally.
The beekeeper keeps the hives in areas where the bees can fly (5-10 km) in the wide open and distance from flowers that have been exposed to sprayed chemicals.
And most importantly the bees are raised cruelty-free and free-range. With the ethical practices, the beekeeper ensures the bees are healthy and keep producing beeswax even after some is taken. This means the beeswax is sustainable to ensure no effect on the planet.

Where does your cotton come from?

We use (GOTS) Certified Organic cotton 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 wastewater treatment plant is mandatory for any wet-processing unit involved and all processors must comply with social criteria. The key criteria of GOTS, it’s quality assurance system and the principles of the review and revision procedure are summarised in this section.

It is not always easy to obtain but it helps ensure that cotton is sourced in the most sustainable way, from seed to stitch.

Can I cut my beeswax wrap?

Yes! We cut them all the time. We are proudly the pioneers of Bulk rolls beeswax wraps. You can get them by the metre or your desired length and a sharp pair of scissors should do the trick to cut it into your unique perfect sizes.

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.

Will beeswax wraps carry odours from food to food?

It changes from person to person. Everyone has different senses ability and perceptions.

Use the cover technique: Put your strong-scented foods into a bowl and cover it, this will help you keep the strong smells from foods like onion, cheese, ginger from penetrating into the fabric of the wrap.

Or we recommend having one dedicated beeswax wrap for onion and one for cheese.

Will my beeswax wrap stain?

Yes, like all natural materials, beeswax wraps can stain. Deeply pigmented foods like berries, pomegranates and beets are valued worldwide as natural dyes for textiles. They naturally tint any material they come in contact with.

If after you wash them properly the stain does not go away. No problem!! Stains don’t mean the wrap is dirty it gives a bit of character and storyteller of the tons of food saved from going to landfill.

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 pegs or magnets, and just run the heat over them until the wax melts.  We suggest refreshing them anytime you start to notice increased loosening mix-wax as the best method to get them to last as long as possible.


I think it is the end of my beeswax wraps, what can I do?

Beeswax wraps are 100% compostable, they are made from natural ingredients and to Earth, they will return leaving no trace on our precious planet.

Stop!, before you throw them in your compost or worm farm. Use them as twist ties to tie your plants, instead of rubber bands to close packets or as fire starters for BBQs and woodfires.
