If you are just getting started, the multi pack of Honeywrap beeswax wraps is a good option. For a child's lunchbox, this will give you a range of sizes that should suit your needs.
This pack contains 3 wraps, 1 each of our small (17 x 20 cm), medium (27 x 31 cm) and large (33 x 35 cm) wraps.
Both packaging and wraps can be home composted.
Use and care of your beeswax wraps:
- Use the warmth of your hands to shape the wrap around the food or container.
- Brush off crumbs like you would a bread board.
- Hand wash in cool water with a little eco detergent when needed and use a soft dishcloth to wipe as required (our Spruce cloths are great for this!).
- Pat dry or hang to dry and then fold and store (we prefer to leave ours to air dry before storing).
- Keep away from sources of heat (microwave, hot water, dishwasher, oven and direct sunlight such as in your car). Make sure your hot food has cooled down before using your beeswax wrap.
- Not recommended for use with raw meat.
- High acid foods (e.g. pineapple) can affect the performance of your beeswax wraps.
Garden pesticide sprays can be lethal for bees. Avoid using any chemical sprays if possible. If you must use sprays then the best time to do so is early morning and at sunset as the bees should be less active at this time. Don't spray plants when flowering and check your garden sprays are safe for bees.
