Creative Ways to Use Beeswax Food Wrap DIY

  • Why use your wraps only for storage? One way to show off the cover you made is to fold it into a box and use it to serve grapes or berries. Pass around servings of cheese balls for hors d'oeuvres in the fabric box that matches your style.
  • Nothing is more annoying that those little pests that fly into your carafe of wine while dining outdoors. The watertight seal of your wrap will fit over the top of your carafe. And the unfinished bottle of wine you brought? Using your beeswax wrap is easier than trying to jam the cork back into the bottle.
  • Your beeswax wrap comes to the rescue when your jar lid is stuck. They are just tacky enough to strengthen your grip on the top. And what happens when your lid goes missing? Use the food wrap to seal the jar, and you don't have to worry about a stuck lid again.

Tips for Getting More out of Your Beeswax Reusable Food Wrap DIY

The beauty of the beeswax wrap is that you save yourself many trips to the grocery to replenish the plastic wrap. Learn ways to keep your food wraps as good as new.

  • Regularly cleaning your wraps will help them stay fresh and reusable for months and years to come. Use cool water and a mild detergent to wash both sides gently, and then hang them to dry. Store them in a cool, dry place.
  • Over time, you may notice little cracks, or that the beeswax wrap isn't as tacky as before. Remelt it in the oven on a very low heat after cleaning it with cool water. You may lose some wax with regular use, but if you grate more onto the wrap before it enters the oven, you'll end up with a food cover as good as new.
  • There is a second life for your beeswax sandwich wraps DIY. You can cut the wraps into strips and add them to a composter. Another fun alternative is to wrap the cloth around pieces of kindling. Use the wraps at your next campfire or in your home fireplace on a winter's night.
