Beeswax Wrap Care & FAQs
Feel free to get in touch if you have any unanswered questions about your new beeswax wrap.
It’s perfectly normal and a sign of a long lasting beeswax wrap. When a Queen Bee Wrap is new it can often leave a behind a small amount of beeswax on glass bowls or plates when covering leftovers and even your hands. When doing public demos of our wraps my hands get sticky, on the plus side they are very soft hands after a days demo! Just rub you hands together to disperse. It’s like a salve.
When the wrap is new it’s loaded with our special beeswax mixture so the wrap will last up to a year, this wears off in time. When wrapping food you are unlikely to get any transfer of wax on to food as you are not pressing hard like you would on a glass bowl. Also note we use 100% pure, beeswax, which has been fully tested and certified for food use, but I’d not recommend eating a whole one!
You can easily remove residue from dishes in hot soapy water or a dishwasher.
