How do I care for my Honeywrap?
Brush off crumbs as you would a bread-board ( Ingredients beeswax, tree resin and jojoba are similar to ingredients used for a bread board). As needed wash with cold water and an eco detergent. Cold water provides a harder surface to wipe off. Warm water reduce the longevity of your wrap. Pat dry and reuse.
Will Beeswax taint my food?
Despite strongly smelling of beeswax initially, this does not pass onto your food. The fragrance diminishes as the Honeywrap is used and washed over the first few weeks.
How do they work?
Beeswax, tree resin and jojoba are natural preservatives. The organic cotton infused with this mix allows your food to breathe and therefore last longer. The beeswax blend combines to create a tacky cloth which can be shaped around food and dishes to seal in goodness. By firmly pressing the Honeywrap around your food or bowl the warmth of your hands activates the mixture and the cloth will stick to itself.
Will heat affect my Honeywrap?
Honeywraps are made from natural ingredients that respond to their environment. They will feel different depending on the temperature. If it is warmer they typically feel softer if colder they may feel harder and not as tacky. Honeywraps will soften and melt if temperatures get to 60 degrees. Room temperature does not usually reach this (unless you are in the Sahara) but be aware on hot days surfaces in direct sunlight can reach this. Wait for your food to cool before using your Honeywrap. Don't put in the oven, dishwasher or microwave. They will create a small mess!
How long will they last?
With proper care your Honeywrap should last up to a year. Over time and use the tackiness of your wrap will reduce, however they can still work effectively to wrap food. You may need to hold more firmly and slightly longer when molding over a bowl.
