DIY Beeswax Wrap

Oven Instructions

You will need:

  • Oven
  • Oven tray
  • Baking Paper
  • Grater

Preheat oven to 100°C and cover an oven tray with baking paper.

Place clean and dry beeswax wrap or cotton fabric, flat on prepared oven tray.

Using a grater, grate enough of the beeswax wrap mix to lightly cover the wrap (remember when the wax melts it will spread).

* Note you will require more wax with new fabric, as it will soak into fabric.

Place tray in preheated oven for 5 minutes or until all the wax has melted.

Grate more wax over any missed patches and place back in oven until melted.

Hang to dry.
