  • Full Description
These Beeswax food wraps are an easy-to-make, environmentally friendly alternative to plastic cling film. They are easy to fold and seal around food or a bowl to keep food fresh or protect from pests.
Wraps can be washed in cool, soapy water and reused however, as they can’t be washed in hot water, don’t use them to cover raw meat or fish.
They are also a great way to use up old scraps of fabric, unwanted clothing or other textiles you might have laying around. Just make sure the fabric you use is clean and dry and made from natural fibres - wool however is not suitable.
 
Ingredients
NZ Beeswax (yellow or white) 100g
Pine Rosin 20g
Jojoba, Golden Natural Oil 3Tb
Fabric to make 6 30cm x 30cm sheets  
 
Equipment
Jug, paintbrush, baking paper and iron, or tinfoil and oven.

Ingredients

Method
1.Crush up the pine rosin to make it a powder. (mortar & pestle, plastic bag with hammer)
2.Melt the beeswax, jojoba and pine rosin in a glass pyrex jug in a double boiler (see below).
3.When melted, brush over your pre-cut fabric square - a paint brush works great here.
4.When they are all done put your fabric square between baking paper and iron or place in tin foil and put in the oven. This is so your wax evenly melts into the fabric.
5.Hang to dry 
 
Double Boiler
Half fill a saucepan with water, bring to the boil and reduce to a gentle simmer.
Place the oil/beeswax into a pouring pitcher, tempered glass or stainless steel jug small enough to fit inside the saucepan and best if the handle goes over the outside of the pot. Carefully place the bowl onto the simmering water.
