Brush off crumbs as you would a bread-board. As needed wash with cold water and an eco-detergent. Cold water provides a harder surface to wipe off, warm water will reduce the longevity of your wrap. Pat dry and reuse.
With proper care your Honeywrap should last up to a year. Over time and
use the tackiness of your wrap will reduce, however they can still work
effectively to wrap food. You may need to hold more firmly and slightly
longer when molding over a bowl.
The concept is borrowed from nature. Beeswax, tree resin and jojoba are natural preservatives and the organic
cotton infused with this mix allows your food to breathe and therefore
last longer. The beeswax blend combines to create a tacky cloth which
can be shaped around food and dishes to seal in goodness. By firmly
pressing the Honeywrap around your food or bowl the warmth of your hands
activates the mixture and the cloth will stick to itself.
Honeywraps are made from natural ingredients that respond to their
environment. They will feel different depending on the temperature. If
it is warmer they typically feel softer if colder they may feel harder
and not as tacky. Honeywraps will soften and melt if temperatures get to
60 degrees. Room temperature does not usually reach this (unless you
are in the Sahara) but be aware on hot days surfaces in direct sunlight
can reach this. Wait for your food to cool before using your Honeywrap.
Don't put in the oven, dishwasher or microwave. They will create a small
Your wraps work well with a huge variety of food and vegetables,
cheeses, breads and leftovers. They allow the food to breathe, rather
than sweat so really do keep your food fresh. Try the smalls ( 18 x 20
cm) with avocados, cucumbers, cabbage, onions, nuts etc. Be amazed. The
medium (27 x 29 cm) and larger ( 33 x 33 cm) sizes work well with
cheeses (avoid those cracking ends on your cheddar), leftovers, breads,
salads, platters, melons. It is probably easier to say which foods to
avoid- raw meat. Fruits which have higher acidic content such as
pineapple may reduce the longevity slightly. I avoid the wrap touching
the flesh by placing the pineapple face down on a plate and then
If you prefer your Honeywrap to look pristine you will need to keep it
away from some foods. For example cheeses and breads are fine, but some
sauces will stain your Honeywrap – this does not affect the
effectiveness of your Honeywrap it just won't look as pretty.
Your honeywrap is made from fabric so
over time it may fray. You can use sewing scissors to trim frayed edges
if you wish. Your Honeywrap can also be refreshed by hanging out in
sunlight for short periods.
Honeywraps are made from all natural ingredients; a number of them
by-products. They are free of toxins. All packaging is kept to a minimum
to reduce waste and is biodegradable. All steps of the making process
are completed in a way to reduce any unnecessary waste and following the
principles of reduce, reuse, and recycle. Honeywraps can be put in
compost when their use is finished.
