The Basics - Using Your Beeswax Wrap
This may be a little bit like teaching you to suck eggs, but we thought as this is a fairly new product it is always good to cover the basics. When wrapping anything you just need to use the heat of your hand to help seal the Beeswax Wrap to itself. If you are covering leftovers just make sure it has completely cooled before you use your wrap.
How To Clean Beeswax Wraps
It's super simple, a splash of gentle dishwashing liquid and a bit of cool water.

We recommend refreshing your Beeswax Wraps every few months to help keep them fresh and sticky. It's really easy to do and will make your Beeswax Wrap feel almost brand new again.

Fresh Bread For Longer - Yes Please
There really is nothing like homemade or fresh bread from the bakery, but that crunchy crust and soft inside doesn't last long if you keep it in the paper bag or your bread tin. Because our Beeswax Wraps are breathable they allow the nasties to float away leaving your bread free to chill and stay super fresh for much longer. Plus the bit we love is that you don't get the rubbish dry end once you have sliced it, it stays soft and tasty so no wastage.

Getting Flashy - How To Make A Beeswax Wrap Box
We use these boxes all the time, they are great for storing bits in the fridge or freezer, you can make two and use one as a lid. The key to nailing this is time, give yourself 10 mins just to fiddle and before you know it the tricky corner fold at the end will happen and you will think, 'yes I am an origami master'. We have found it also really impresses children if you need to keep them entertained for a bit. And as a side note, this fold is brilliant for making boxes for presents, we have a stack of old music paper that we used to make loads of gift boxes last Christmas.
