Reusable Food Wrap - Medium
Medium is the most popular Honeywrap for families. The not too big, not too small size renders it perfect for covering side plates, wrapping kids sandwiches, or it can be used for smaller snacks and treats. Perfect for waste free lunches.
This size will fit over the end of your 500g block of cheese and help you avoid the yellowing and nasty cracks that tend to appear on the end- though not a problem if your cheese is eaten quickly!
Size: 31 cm x 27 cm Made with GOTS certified organic fabric.
Use the warmth of your hands to shape the Honeywrap over and around your food and dishes.
The Honeywrap sticks to itself when you press firmly.
When stored in the fridge the beeswax will harden further, retaining the shape and sealing in the goodness.
How to care for:
When your honeywrap needs a clean always use cold water and mild soap (eco-friendly is best). Either immerse your honeywrap in cold water and dish soap or sponge off with a dishcloth. Air dry on a dish rack or use a teatowel to dry off. Storing in our tea-towel drawer works for us.
Some oils and sauces may stain your honeywrap, but your food stays fresh. Don't forget that honeywraps' don't like the heat so avoid dishwashers, microwaves and ovens. Do not use to cover raw meat.
Your honeywrap can be used again and again following these simple steps.
Our products are handmade by us and will therefore have some variation in detail, size and shape.
Why organic cotton?
Cotton is one of the most pesticide loaded crops in the world. Production of cotton in to clothes uses toxic chemicals at each stage. The chemicals from cotton crops and factories then runs off contaminating water supplies resulting in huge health problems and harming wildlife.
Organic cotton is made without pesticides therefore it is better for the environment, the farmers and eventually our own health as our skin is not exposed to the harmful chemicals used in the manufacturing process of traditional cotton.
Beeswax is a by-product of honey production. Honey bees secrete beeswax to make the walls of their honeycomb. When the honey is collected the beeswax cappings are removed and then melted in blocks. Bees must collectively fly about six times around the earth, to make the equivalent of a block of butter in beeswax.
Beeswax is water repellent, is naturally anti-bacterial and has an indefinite shelf life. It is anti-septic used for wound healing and is used in many cosmetics. Beeswax is a magical substance as are the bees that make it.
Tree resin and jojoba oil
Tree resin and jojoba oil are also amazing. They both also have anti-bacterial properties. Tree resin is water resistant and is also used in wound healing and increasingly in many cosmetics.
Jojoba oil is the liquid produced from the Jojoba plant. It is used in many cosmetics, moisturisers, shampoo and conditioners. Jojoba oil replaced whale oil in these products. Jojoba oil also has anti-fungal properties.
This combination of these natural ingredients keeps your food fresh and your conscience free.
