Keep your lunch fresh in these stylish resuable wax wraps. They are so simple to make in your chosen fabric and size. I’ve used a beeswax bar, but pellets are also available if you prefer. And remember, don’t use heat to clean your wraps as the wax will melt – they will easily wipe clean.
33 x 33cm (13 x 13in)
What you need
For one wrap:
33cm (13in) square of
Beeswax block (for vegans, soy wax flakes are readily available online)
Variation – Make up wax wraps in different fabrics for each member of the family!
Cut two pieces of greaseproof paper measuring approximately 38cm (15in) square. Place the fabric over one piece. Grate the beeswax bar over the fabric square – be sparing, as you can always add more wax later. Sprinkle a few drops of jojoba oil over the fabric.
Place over the tea towel. Put the second sheet of greaseproof paper over the wax and iron. The wax will quickly melt – use the iron to spread it evenly over the fabric.
