Are the wraps REUSABLE?
Yes! You can reuse these wraps as an alternative to plastic over and over.
How long do the wraps LAST for?
Generally we say they may last for a year or more (depending on how you care for them and use them of course!). We have had many many customers saying theirs have lasted much longer than a year!
How do I USE the wraps?
You can use the wraps to cover plates/bowls/platters just as you would saran wrap. You can also wrap up food directly using a wrap as show in the diagram below. You can also fold in the edges and the top flap over to create a reusable alternative to a Ziploc baggie. There are TONS of alternative uses too like as a cover for your toothbrush/soap/shampoo bar for travel, pinch in the corners to make a bowl for popcorn, water etc, or use them to wrap your reusable straws and cutlery! Our website has a tutorial on the different uses for the wraps if you would like more info.

Are the wraps WASHABLE?
Yes! You can wash the wraps use cool water and mild dish soap. Simply rinse off and wipe a bit more vigorously for stains. Hang, lay flat, or put on drying rack to dry. Fold up or roll and pop in your (former!) saran wrap drawer to store.

What INGREDIENTS are used to make the wraps?
The wraps are all made natural and organic ingredients: Prewashed 100% cotton fabric (some organic and some non-organic) and then coated in beeswax, pine resin, and jojoba oil.
What are some ADDITIONAL BENEFITS of the wraps?
In addition to reducing your plastic use, these wraps preserve your food amazingly well (beeswax has been used as a natural preserving method for decades), makes your fridge look and smell subtly wonderful, and once they are no longer useable they are fully compostable!
Can I use the wraps in the MICROWAVE or OVEN?
No! This will melt the wax on the wraps. Please contact us should this accidentally occur as we can try and help you salvage your melted wraps.
What TYPES OF FOOD can I wrap or cover with the wraps?
You can wrap or cover nearly any type of food item including cooked and cured meats (ex. cheese, fruit, veggies, nuts, sandwiches, lasagnas, salads…the sky is the limit!). We just recommend not using the wraps with RAW meat/fish as they cannot be washed in hot water afterwards.
