As we become more and more mindful of our plastic use, it’s great to see solutions like these turning up to help us cut out the single use plastic!
Beeswax-soaked fabric is a food and drink covering method that goes back to medieval times, and it’s extremely effective. Just warm the wrap in your hands slightly if it’s a cold day and then smooth it over the container you’re covering, using its natural stickiness to adhere it firmly to the sides. If you want to make it super-secure you can add a cord around the outside, but for home use the wrap alone will stay in place just fine. You can also use them as sandwich wraps, as they stick to themselves very well. Cleaning’s a doddle too – wipe with warm (not hot) water and a wee bit of dishsoap if you think it needs it.
