Revive + Re-Wax Your Beeswax Food Wrap • DIY Instructions

You can extend the life of your reusable food wrap by reviving or re-waxing them. You’ll know when it’s time to maintain it when you notice the wrap isn’t as sticky and pliable as it used to be. This is a great way to reduce waste and consumption while using all natural ingredients and materials in the process. I have pictures and and video below to share the process.

To revive your beeswax food wrap:

  1. Deep clean your wrap with hot water and dish soap and hang to dry.
  2. Heat oven to the lowest temperature, approximately 150 C.
  3. Lay wrap flat on a baking sheet and place in oven for 2 minutes.
  4. When beeswax has melted, remove tray and pick wraps up by corners.
  5. Hold up for a few seconds while wax hardens, then lay on a flat surface.

Re-waxing is an easy DIY process that you can do right in the kitchen. All that you need along with step by step instructions can be found below.
