How to Use and Care for Bee's Wrap®
Using reusable and compostable Bee's Wrap® is a small yet meaningful step toward reducing single-use plastic and food waste. Here are some tips on how to use Bee’s Wrap and make it a habit that sticks.
How to Use Bee's Wrap®
Put Bee’s Wrap® to work wrapping ingredients, prepping meals, and storing leftovers in the kitchen or packing sandwiches and snacks on-the-go. Use the warmth of your hands to shape Bee’s Wrap® around ingredients and dishes. The wrap will stick to itself, giving your food a hug and creating a protective seal.
Good to Know! Bee’s Wrap® can be used in the refrigerator, freezer or at room temperature. Be careful to avoid any exposure to heat (hot water, ovens, microwaves, hot food) which will melt the wax.

How to Care for Bee's Wrap®
To keep your wraps in tip-top shape, always rinse them in cool water. If food scraps stick to your wrap, gently scrub it with mild dish soap using your hands or a soft scrub brush.
Air dry your Bee's Wrap® by draping over a drying rack, a clothesline, or a collapsible Bee's Wrap® Drying Rack. Once your wrap is nice and dry, fold it up and tuck it into a drawer or keep it on your kitchen counter.
How to Know When It's Time for a New Bee's Wrap®
With regular use and proper care you can expect Bee’s Wrap® to last a year or longer. When your wraps or bags lose their grip, they can be composted or used as a fire-starter, returning to the Earth instead of heading to a landfill.
Cut Bee’s Wrap® into strips to add to your compost or wrap them around pieces of kindling and use as a natural and effective fire starter.
Good to Know! Some products like berries and beets can stain wraps. If tie dye isn't your thing, opt for one of our darker colored prints, such as our Oceans, Clover or Botanical.
