The Beerofix Beeswax Wrap DIY Block is ideal for making your very own, at-home beeswax food storage wraps. It is sufficient for impregnating 2 000 cm² of cotton and for S, M and L wraps. The instructions can be found below:
You will need:
- Cotton cloth scaps
- 1 Beeofix DIY Block
- Baking tray
- Baking paper
- Denatured alcohol or oil for cleaning
Cut the cotton cloth to size: preferably patterned shirt or old bedsheets. Pinking shears can be used but are not required.
Preheat the oven to 90°C (fan-assisted convection oven).
- Step 1: Place the cotton cloth on the baking paper in the baking tray. Grate the block of beeswax directly on the cloth to avoid waste any beeswax.
- Step 2: Distribute the beeswax evenly. The beeswax cloth should have an even-looking appearance, i.e. no thick or shiny layers once the procedure is complete.
- Step 3: Place the cloth with the prepped layer of beeswax in the preheated oven for 3 to 5 minutes.
- Step 4: Distribute the melted beeswax evenly on the cloth using a brush. Excess wax should be brushed off the cloth and onto the baking paper.
- Step 5: Allow the warm (no longer hot) cloth to cool on a string or between your fingers. If the beeswax cloth is not evenly coated after it has dried, warm it in the oven once more then brush away any excess wax. Alternatively, add more wax if needed. The beeswax food storage wrap is now ready to be used.
- Place the grater in an old container filled with hot water and wipe clean with an old cleaning cloth.
- Warning: The surface of the grater will still have wax deposits after cleaning.
- The finishing touch: Wipe with a cloth dipped in some oil or denatured alcohol!
