DIY Beeswax Wraps

Ok guys it's plastic free July.  Which means we're making a real effort to get rid of plastic in the kitchen.  We're already using reusable shopping bags and buying from bulk stores to reduce our plastic use.  But what about wrapping food in the fridge?  It's a matter of convenience really that plastic wrap has made a name for itself.  But there is a better and plastic free alternative - Beeswax Wraps.  

We've got loads of offcuts from our floor cushions that need to be put to good use.........so this week we're turning them in to Beeswax Wraps.

 

Here's how we do it:

Heat 1/3 cup of beeswax in a jar in a double boiler setup.  You can also add a couple of tablespoons of organic coconut oil too if you like.

Line a baking tray with baking paper and lay your fabric on the baking paper

Drizzle the runny wax over the fabric - it takes two or three goes for this to cover the whole fabric and a total of around 3 tablespoons of wax

Place the tray in the oven for a couple of minutes on low

Hang your wraps up for a couple of minutes to dry and voila!!

Your beeswax wraps are ready to use!  They'll last you about a year and you can just wipe them down with a cloth to clean. Now we have one dilemma to leave you with......how to get rid of plastic bin bags?  If you have any suggestions please comment below.
