With proper care, beeswax food wraps will last one to two years. Cold water and mild dish soap is all you need to clean and maintain your beeswax food wraps. After rinsing, hang the wrap over your dish rack to let it air dry. We recommend storing wraps in a drawer or similar cool, dry place.
We always remind our clients at our farmers markets that our number one rule with beeswax food wraps is to avoid heat! After all, beeswax will melt so never put a beeswax food wrap in your oven or microwave, and never use hot water when cleaning a beeswax wrap.
Finally, we do not recommend for use with raw meat or uncooked seafood.
Often our clients at farmers markets ask about covering prepared food that is still hot. We always recommend waiting until the food has cooled to room temperature before covering with a beeswax wrap.
