How to use our Rewax Bars to refresh your Wraps

After about a year you’ll notice your wraps feel more like floppy cotton and less sticky, using our rewax bars to refresh your beeswax wraps will help to give them a new lease of life!

Follow our step-by-step guide to make your wraps look and feel as good as new. You can rewax and refresh your wraps many, many times to make the most out of your purchase and the wonderful organic cotton fabric.

A little warning that wax becomes very hot when melted so please be super careful!

You will need:

  • Our rewax bar
  • A small grater
  • A large old tea towel
  • 2 large sheets of baking or greaseproof paper (make sure there is at least 2 inches of space around the wrap to allow the paper to catch any excess wax!)
  • An iron on the hottest setting, with the steam function turned off
  • An ironing board
  • Your old wraps

What to do:

  • Cover your ironing board with the old tea towel, pop the first sheet of baking paper on the top and add your wrap to the middle
  • Grate the wax block over the wrap, focussing on the areas where the wax is most worn away. The block may be a little sticky but persevere!
  • Put the last sheet over the top and begin to iron
  • Gently move your iron across the wrap, watching as the wax underneath moves and melts into the wrap. Be careful and continuously move the iron to prevent the wax from burning
  • Once all the wax is melted (this should take a few minutes, make sure you double check the corners!), lift the iron away and quickly remove the top sheet of baking paper
  • Quickly lift the wrap away from the board and waft in the air to cool and set

Your wrap is then ready to use as normal!
