How do vegan wax wraps differ from Beeswax wraps?
Plant wax food wraps have similar water resistance and self-stick properties to beeswax - the only notable difference is that vegan wax wraps have a slight shine due to the nature of vegetable waxes.
All of our wax wraps now carry Viva! Vegan certification so you can be confident that we use no animal derived ingredients and use no animal testing.
How do I use wax wraps?
Your food wraps mould and grip with the warmth of your hands – simply shape the wrap around the container you want to seal or press together to close over sandwiches. Once the wrap is bonded (approximately 5-10 seconds) it has formed a water repellant seal that keeps your food fresh. Please note that wax can only be used with fully cooled food and is not suitable for microwaves, ovens or hot plates.
How long will my wraps last?
Your wraps will last between six months to a year with regular use – this natural formula will not crack or flake in your refrigerator or cool box.
Looking after your wraps
To clean your wrap simply wash it under cold to lukewarm water with a little dish soap (hot water will strip the finish) or wipe it with a damp sponge. Leave to line dry or wipe with a drying cloth. You can store your wrap anywhere that doesn’t get too hot – a kitchen drawer is ideal. When your wrap reaches the end of its useful life simply cut into strips and compost it.
