Have you ever wondered what you could use to replace plastic wrap and plastic bags? The solution could be Bee’s Wrap.
Recently, I purchased reusable food wraps from Bee’s Wrap. Bee’s Wrap products are a natural way to cover and store foods. Their wraps are made of beeswax, organic cotton, jojoba oil and tree resin. You use the heat of your hands to make the wrap stick to dishware or itself; however, it sticks to itself best. When you’re done, just hand wash the wraps in cool water and leave them out to dry.
I was extremely excited to use the Bee’s Wrap products I ordered, and so far they have not disappointed. You can use each wrap for up to a year, according to Bee’s Wrap’s website. I have only been using mine for three months. My wraps do look a little worn. They have faded slightly and have wrinkles where they’ve been previously folded. However, they still work as they did directly out of the package.
How I Use Them
I use mine to wrap up lemons and apples that I’ve cut into or to cover plates of leftovers. I’ve also used them on the go, wrapping up dried mango slices, nuts and other snacks. These wraps work well as containers for snacks and sandwiches. They are smaller and more malleable than Tupperware-type containers, so they are easier to fit into bags and purses.
The wraps have one downfall: they stain. I wrapped up a chopped red pepper, and it has retained a red stain after multiple washes. I would suggest to rinse any colorful juices off the wraps as soon as possible. Do not use harsh dish soaps (like Dawn) or hot water on these wraps.
Patterns & Sizes
Bee’s Wrap food wraps come in multiple patterns and sizes. They have cream honeycomb, purple clover, geometric, and “Bees + Bear” prints.
Their sizes include:
- Small = 7” x 8”
- Medium = 10” x 11”
- Large = 13” x 14”
- Bread wrap = 17” x 23”
- Baguette wrap = 14” x 26”
- Sandwich wrap = 13“ x 13”
Their sandwich wraps come with an attached button and string tie.
Each product also comes in recyclable, plastic-free packaging, and includes a fun fact about bees.
According to their website, all of their wraps are biodegradable. When a wrap’s life ends, it can be composted!
