Beeswax Wrap Instructions & FAQs
To Re-Wax Your Wraps:
- Clean Wraps in hot water then leave them out to dry.
- Arrange your Wraps on a baking sheet or cooling rack.
- Heat the provided wax in a double boiler like so.
- Using a brush or utensil, apply melted wax to clean, dry, Wax Wraps.
- Warning: Melted Wax is very hot! Exercise caution.
- Let cool to dry and set.

To Properly Care for Your Wraps:
- Avoid exposing Beeswax Wraps to heat of any kind.
- Clean gently with mild soap and cool water.
- Let dry completely before folding or rewrapping.
- If your brush, bowl, baking sheet, or cooling rack become saturated with wax, you can heat them using your oven or boiling water, in order to loosen and remove the wax. Once heated, most objects can be wiped clean with a dry paper towel.
- We highly recommend adding some pine resin to your beeswax melt to increase the stickiness of your wraps. A ratio of 5:1 or 4:1 wax:resin is ideal. Remember to choose a resin that is sustainably sourced to keep our trees thriving!
