Tips Regarding How to Make Beeswax Wraps in the Oven

There aren’t a lot of differences in how to make beeswax wraps with an iron or in the oven. The goal is to melt the beeswax blend into the cloth for a finished product that is tacky, durable, flexible, and hygienic. Learn the best techniques to ensure you have well-made beeswax food wraps.

  • Begin with your choice of fabric and pattern. We recommend quilting weight pure cotton because it is breathable, it holds the wax well, and it doesn’t retain odours. It is also compostable in a year or so when you retire your wrap. Include your children in picking the patterns of the fabric, especially if the beeswax wrap will travel to school in their lunch.
  • Place a sheet of baking paper on a tray or a solid surface if using an iron. Lay the fabric on the baking sheet and shave the beeswax block sparingly onto the fabric. Lay a second layer of baking paper over the material if using an iron. The beeswax will melt when placed in the oven, or ironed. Ensure the wax spreads evenly, and grate more onto the fabric and reheat if the wax doesn’t cover all the material.
  • Gently peel your fabric by the corners and let air-dry. Hold it by the edges and let it cool for a few moments before laying it on a rack. Viola! You have a beeswax wrap ready to go to work for you.

When you learn how to make beeswax food wraps, you will delight in how easy it is. Once you have a few beeswax wraps, you’ll want more because you’ll find there are so many various applications for them. Discover some ways people find different uses for the food wraps.

  • Next time you hop on a plane or take off on a backpacking trip, wrap your soap or shampoo bar in a beeswax wrap. Even if your soap is wet after use, the beeswax wrap sticks to itself to keep the soap sealed in the packaging.
  • The goal of our beeswax wrap is to reduce plastic use. Next time you purchase flowers, bring along a large sheet of beeswax wrap to carry off your bouquet in style.
