The many advantages of the beeswax wrap
The Beeswax Wrap is plastic-free and eliminates household waste every time you store wrapped leftover food or meals. The beeswax wrap therefore has the advantages of being:
- 100% natural
- Zero waste
Beyond its practicality, this beeswax coated cotton reusable food packaging is thermoformable. This indicates that it takes the form of any object when slightly heated during use. It can therefore adapt to all forms of any food or container. The fabric is coated with beeswax, which will soften slightly in the heat of the hands, allowing the fabric to lose its stiffness and envelop any shape. It will match all the different fruits and vegetables at will, as can the fact that it can be fixed on a bowl, a bottle or a rectangular dish.
Healthy and completely hygienic, you can rest assured that your beeswax wrap will not let any toxic residue pass through or leave any on your food products. In addition, it will not retain any odor!
It will prolong the life of your food and it will be perfectly stored and protected from humidity.
Can the bee wrap be placed in the freezer?
To put it simply, it is quite possible to put the beewrap in the freezer on your bowl or directly on your food. Useful for keeping and preserving the freshness of bread, it will also help keep the crisp on the outside and the softness of the bread crumbs on the inside.
We recommend that when you take it out of the freezer to allow it to defrost in the open air. It is strongly recommended not to put the beeswax wrap in the microwave. The wax would melt and it would then be completely unusable.
You can also hold it in your hands or handle it for a few seconds to transfer the heat from your palms to the bee wrap to thaw faster. This will soften the fabric and extract it from what is wrapped around it. Don't worry, the wax will not crack in the cold.
Once detached, allow it to thaw properly before reuse. No more plastic freezer bags, your bee wrap will optimize the preservation of food in the freezer!
