*Small Snacker Wraps*
Our 20 x 20 cm Snacker sized beeswax wraps are perfect for all those little bits and pieces you want to save - plenty big enough to cover cut ends of fruit, cheese board treasures, jars in the fridge, and of course, snacks on the go.
These versatile little numbers are amazing value at just $5.00 for a single wrap, or pick up a set of three for $14 and save even more.
Patterns will be selected at random from our huge range and may include patterns not currently listed on our website.
This is a Packaging Free Product - in other words, you don't get our pretty paper band that tells you all about them, so here's what the band says:
Replaces most uses of plastic cling film.
Mold and press your wrap around food or dishes to cover.
Naturally breathable and antibacterial to help preserve your food, extending its life and minimising waste.
Handwash in cool water with a gentle dish detergent and air dry.
Avoid heat - let food cool before wrapping and avoid microwaves, dishwashers and ovens.
Do not use on raw meat.
How To Use Your Beeswax Wraps
Any time you reach for the plastic sandwich bags or plastic wrap, you can probably use a beeswax wrap.
Simply shape and fold your beeswax wrap around your bowl or food, using gentle pressure and the warmth of your hands to create a seal.
Use for bread, cheese, vegetables or fruit, sandwiches and snacks, and to cover dishes. Safe for use in the fridge and freezer.
Do not use your wrap on raw meat, as the wrap cannot be cleaned with hot water.
How to Care For Your Beeswax Wraps
Your beeswax wraps can easily last a year or more with regular use, with some simple care.
Handwash your wraps in cool water with dishwashing liquid. Do not use hot water, or put in the dishwasher, microwave or oven – you’ll melt the wax right out!
Air dry, and store however is convenient for you - folded in a drawer, or rolled into cylinders in a jar. Do not store in direct summer sunlight.
Refresh Your Beeswax Wraps
If you find after repeated use that the wax is moving away from crease lines or feels a bit uneven, you can easily refresh your wraps by melting the wax to redistribute it. You can use either the oven or iron methods to refresh your wraps, just using the heat to redistribute the existing wax.
Recharge Your Wraps
Over time and with a lot of ongoing use the wax in your wraps will deplete. Often the fabric still has a lot of life in it, but the wrap simply dries out and no longer sticks the way it did.
Great News! You can use our DIY beeswax wrap blend to re-wax your wraps!
Use either the oven or iron method – your choice – just follow the instructions as if you were making a new wrap. Be aware that you may need very little wax – it’s usually just that top layer you need to replace, so go easy.
End of Life
When your wrap finally wears out (or, let's be honest, when you feel the need for a cute new design), your wrap is fully compostable and biodegradable, so you can simply add to your compost bin or just bury in your garden, or even use as a weed matting. If you have a fireplace then your tired wrap will make a wonderful firelighter.
Handmade Just For You
Please note, all our wraps are handmade by an actual living human, so small variations are inevitable.
We will always do our best to send your order out within 2-3 working days. Occasionally we may need to make your products to order, so if you need an something in a particularly tight timeline, feel free to drop us an email or give us a call on 06 876 8852 and we'll do our best to help.
Delivery Costs and Timelines
$7 within urban areas, $9 to rural areas. (2-3 working days after dispatch) Free delivery on orders over $100.
We currently send via Courierpost.
Australia & Rest of World:
Sadly, due to rising costs of international delivery and extended delivery delays, as of 3 November 2020 we have removed our international shipping option.
We hope to resume international deliveries when the situation improves, but for now we believe this is our only option to avoid disappointment to customers.
International Orders and Bee Products
Different countries have different rules around importation of natural products, and it's common for beeswax not to be allowed in order to protect the health of their local bees. We get it. After all, Kev and I (Dee) are beekeepers, first and foremost.
HOWEVER, we have very tight biosecurity and good bee health here in New Zealand, and as many of our products are a blend of beeswax, tree resin and other oils, there is no risk they will ever end up being used directly in a beehive, as a block of pure beeswax might.
Therefore we've had no problem with border restrictions, and as at the date of writing this, our products have been sent without problem to Australia, the US, Canada, the UK, and a dozen other countries .
Some countries may have various border or import charges - please note that you will be responsible for any such charges.
Route Shipping Insurance
At checkout you'll see the option to purchase Route shipping insurance on your order.
It's usually a very small cost, and Route is underwritten by Lloyds of London, so you can trust them to pay for a replacement for your order if it is lost for any reason.
We don't think this insurance is really necessary in New Zealand, so feel free to untick if you like, but we highly recommend it for international orders, as these travel via untracked airmail (tracked is about four times the price!).
What about packaging? Do you use plastic?
We're committed to eliminating plastic wherever we can - the clear bags our kits are packaged in are NOT plastic. They are genuine cellophane, made from vegetable cellulose and are fully biodegradable and home compostable.
And we're very happy to announce that the black courier bags we use are also NOT plastic! They are made from plants (mostly corn I believe), and are fully biodegradable, and home compostable. And, a little oddly, they smell like fresh toast, or maybe popcorn!
It's not just plastic we're about reducing though - You'll see on our naked DIY blocks you have the option to buy without packaging, and on every one of our ready-made wrap pages we encourage customers to let us know if they don't need individual packaging on the wraps.
All prices on this website are in New Zealand Dollars.
We offer the following payment options for your convenience:
These are the best value out there, were sent out immediately & arrived the next day! I have used them daily and have found them to be a great product.
I only buy from here, best price and the best quality. These are a great size for left over fruits and veges.
I am thrilled with my honey wraps.
No to cling wrap.
I really like the product I have one small 'but' - I put in a 'note to seller' that said may I please get at least one with cat pattern on it and that seems to have gone without notice. Otherwise no complaints :)
