Benefits of Wax Food Wraps
Wax Food Wraps are the ideal alternative to cling film, tin foil and disposable plastic bags. The wax mixture creates a waxy coating that helps the fabric adhere to itself or a surface such as bowl or a plate simply by holding the wrap in place for a few seconds.
The heat from your hands causes the wax to melt slightly and 'adhere'.
Often using wax food wraps can lengthen the life span of food items because unlike plastic, the wrap allows air to pass through avoiding 'sweating' whilst preventing the food from drying out.
You can use wax wraps for covering sandwiches, fruit, cakes, biscuits, bread, food left overs, bowls... anything that you would usually use plastic or tin foil for. It is however advised that they are not used for raw fish or meat due to the risk of bacteria.
Caring for your wax wraps
To clean wraps after use, wash them in cool soapy water and hang to dry. Using hot water will cause the wax to melt off the fabric and reduce the lifespan of the wrap.
