What with the end-of-year work craziness and an impending house move, this week’s post is short and sweet. But it’s also a super simple swap: beeswax wraps in place of cling film.
I’ve not used my wraps much yet as I’m slowly getting through my last roll of cling film (I hardly use it as it is so it’s taking a while!) but it always makes me smile grabbing a fox-adorned piece of cheese from the fridge.
Use the heat of your hands to form a seal around whatever it is you want to wrap. Once cooled, it’ll hold its shape and stay sealed. They’re super easy to clean too - either use cool soapy water or wipe with a damp cloth.
Sometimes the wraps can become cracked but you can rescue them - lay the wrap on greaseproof paper in the oven (on a very low heat) until the wax melts. It won’t take long so don’t go away!! As soon as the wax has melted, remove it from the oven and lift it up into the air. The wax will reset almost instantly and you can use it again and again. Once they’ve been rescued one too many times, you can either pop your wrap in the compost or cut it up into strips to use as firefighters. Truly zero waste!
