1. Keep Food Fresh

We’re all trying to reduce unnecessary waste, which is why it’s important to keep your food fresh for as long as possible. Wrapping your leafy greens, crunchy vegetables and soft loaves in a beeswax wrap as soon as you’ve bought them can help keep your food fresh for twice as long! A brilliant way to reduce food waste and enjoy fresh food for longer.

2. Make a Piping Bag

If you’re an avid baker like I am, then this is a real game changer! Instead of using single-use plastic piping bags, simply roll up one of our larger beeswax wraps, pop the nozzle in the end and work your magic! The best bit is that you can wash and use your wrap again for something entirely different! 

Watch our useful step-by-step video tutorial below on how to make a piping bag.

3. Cover Jars & Bottles

No lid? No problem! Whether it’s an empty glass jar you’re reusing for homemade chutney or overnight oats, or an open bottle of wine (though this definitely doesn’t happen often in our house!), use beeswax wraps to create an airtight seal around your glass bottles and jars and keep the contents fresh.
