How to use your eco-friendly bee wrap in the best possible way?
We explain EVERYTHING 🙂 The use of your Bee Wrap, its maintenance, its end of life.

🌍 More respectful of the planet than traditional food wrap and just as efficient.
💥 Bye bye plastic. A pack of 3 Bee Wraps is equivalent to 3 rolls of cellophane. You can reuse them for 1 year.
💛 Our eco-friendly bee wrap is lovingly made in France,
in an ESAT that employs people with disabilities. They are GOTS certified by Ecocert.

Step 1: FIRST use of your bee wrap

For the first use of your Bee Wrap, take a BIG breath. It’s going to be fine 😉

Start by unfolding it. Crample it 2 or 3 times and make it malleable. It’s ready to go. Wrap up your seasonal fruits, your favorite vegetables, your homemade sandwiches. Or cover your favorite bowls or containers in a snap.

Our tips:
– Always wait until your dishes are cold before covering them with a bee wrap.

– Do not put your bee wrap in direct contact with raw meat or fish. First, put the food in a container and cover it up. You can put it in the fridge or freezer.

– CAUTION: Do not use it in the microwave or oven.

Step 2: use day after day

There are 2 useful ways*:

1/ To cover a bowl or other container, squeeze your bee wrap with your hands, during 2 or 3 seconds to shape the bee wrap. You can rub lightly with your fingers to make it adhere to the bowl.

2/ To wrap your favorite foods directly, such as an apple, carrot or cheese,
place them directly in the center and close the bee wrap on itself.
* If you find the third one, write to us as soon as possible!

Step 3: VERY EASY TO CLEAN

After using your beeswax wrap, remember to clean it. You’ll see, it’s very simple.

1/ Always wash it by hand and use cold water (~20°C). Hot water could damage your bee wrap and melt the beeswax. Preferably use an ecofriendly soap or dishwashing liquid and use the soft side of the sponge, or a tawashi – a small zero-waste sponge made with recycled fabric or simply your hand.

2/ Wipe your beeswax wrap with a clean cloth and keep it dry.

Step 4: Reuse, over and over again 😉

Once clean, the bee wrap is ready to be used again. It can be reused more than 100 times up to one year.

If it adheres a little less at some point, wrinkle it again as in step 1. At the end of its life, you can put it in the oven for 2 minutes at 60°. Wait until it cools down and wrinkle it again. Here we go again!
