Facts & Questions

 
New wraps and bags will smell like beeswax and pine resin. This smell is stronger with fresh products and will fade with time as well as washing. We suggest washing your new wraps or bags when you receive them. With time they will have a light honey scent.
    
HOW TO USE BEESWAX WRAPS?
Place the wrap around the food, storage container or bowl you wish to cover. The heat of your hands will activate the wrap and make it stick. For bags just load and fold over the top.

HOW DO WE CLEAN WRAPS?
Always use cold water and mild soap to clean your wraps and bags. Gently hand wash and allow to air dry.

HOW DO WE CLEAN OUR BAGS?
Bread bags should not need frequent washing if you are only storing breads. You can shake out the crumbs and wash as needed. To wash, fill your bag with cool water, some mild soap and rinse. Air dry over a bottle or glass on a tea towel or dish rack.
 

HOW DO OUR WRAPS KEEP FOOD FRESHER FOR LONGER?
Beeswax wraps allow your food to breathe instead of trapping gases like plastics.
 
WHAT CAN WE WRAP IN OUR WRAPS?
Most of your favorite foods! Cheese, fruits, breads, leftovers, sandwiches and so much more. Beeswax wraps are not suitable for wrapping fresh meat, chicken or fish.

HOW DO WE STORE OUR WRAPS?
Store in a drawer, a jar, basket or however you wish. Just remember to keep away from heat sources. No microwaves!

HOW LONG DO OUR WRAPS LAST FOR?
With the proper care, your wraps should last up to approximately one year. To prolong the life of your wraps, only wash your wraps in cold water with a mild soap.

WHAT ARE OUR WRAPS MADE OUT OF?
The wraps are made from 100% cotton which has been infused with natural beeswax, pine tree resin and jojoba oil. Everything is handmade in our shop in SK, Canada.

CAN WE USE OUR WRAPS IN THE FREEZER?
Yes, you can! just be mindful that you let the wrap warm to room temperature prior to unwrapping.

WILL OUR WRAPS STAIN?
Beeswax wraps can stain. Heavily pigmented foods such as pasta sauce and mustard may stain the wraps. To reduce staining, always wash your wraps with a mild soap and cold water.

CAN OUR WRAPS BE USED IN THE MICROWAVE OR OVEN?
No, heat will melt the wraps.

WHAT DO WE DO WHEN THE WRAPS ARE AT THE END OF THEIR LIFE?
You can either purchase a refresher bar from our shop and refresh wraps yourself, put them in your home compost or even use them as a fire starter.

WILL OUR WRAPS LEAVE A RESIDUE?
New wraps may leave a residue on your container or glassware, however this is not harmful and can easily be removed with water and some soap.
WILL WRAPS MAKE FOOD TASTE LIKE BEESWAX?
Your beeswax wrap do not normally make food taste like your wrap. They will have a stronger smell when they are brand new. We recommend washing new wraps if you find the scent too strong.
Enjoy plastic free food storage!

How to rewax your beeswax wraps:

    Iron method

    1. Place wrap on top of a piece of grease proof paper.
    2. Grate your beeswax block onto the wrap generously. 
    3. Place another piece of grease proof paper over the top of the wrap.
    4. Run a hot iron over the top of the grease proof paper, a few seconds in each area of the wrap.
    5. Repeat the process on the other side.
    6. Peel the grease proof paper off and leave to dry.

    I purchased one for my daughter in Calgary and gave one to my daughter in law and they both loved it. I am also happy, it is a bit stiff and stinky initially but after a couple of rinsing that works itself out

    Glad they loved the bags! The linen bags will be stiffer at first but soften with use. The beeswax will also smell stronger before washing a few times. Thanks for the feedback:)

    Love this bread bag!

    I got my first waxed bread bag from Prairie Bee three years ago which I'm still using today. I also use a linen cloth bag inside the Prairie Bee waxed bag, because it helps to keep my bread bag cleaner and free from crumbs. Would be nice if Prairie Bee also offered a linen cloth bag in their line of products. I love all these waxed products. Thank you!
