Why are my hands all sticky?

It’s the beeswax and tree resin that makes the wrap stick to glass bowls and itself, all good for you skin so when moulding the wraps your fingers will feel tacky. This feeling goes away very quickly. Like a salve though it’s good for you skin too!

Do the wraps smell or transfer aroma to food?

As the wraps are infused with beeswax and tree resin they may have a strong aroma which fades over time. Some people are more sensitive to the smell and in some cases may make some foods have a light beeswax aroma. However non of the ingredients will transfer into your food and are non toxic.

Your wax wrap looking a bit worn? Here’s how to refresh it

Your wax wrap looking a bit worn? Here’s how to refresh it

There are two simple ways you can restore your Wax Wrap back to its natural beauty.

1. Grab an old cookie sheet (warm wax can be messy and difficult to clean up so use a pan you don’t care about), put down a silicon baking mat and lay your Wax Wrap on top. Simply heat it in a 100°C oven. Once it has re-melted after 1-3 mintues, carefully take it out by its corners and hang it up quickly before the wax dries – your wrap will look shiny and new! If the wax has worn off in places, you can sprinkle some grated wax on the cotton, but be sure to add it sparingly.

2. Place a sheet of parchment paper down on your ironing board to cover your board, then place the Wax Wrap on top covered by another large piece of parchment paper. Again, hot wax is incredibly sticky and can seep out the sides, so you want the pieces of parchment paper to completely cover your workspace. Heat your iron to a medium heat and press over the Wax Wrap. Voila – good as new! If you are careful you can store and reuse the parchment paper the next time you want to freshen up your wraps. Just keep the waxed sides together and be careful of the mess.

Grab an old cookie sheet (warm wax can be messy and difficult to clean up so use a pan you don’t care about), put down a silicon baking mat and lay your Wax Wrap on top. Simply heat it in a 100°C oven 2-3 minutes. Once it has re-melted, carefully take it out by its corners and hang it up quickly before the wax dries – your wrap will look shiny and new.
