B E E S W A X F O O D W R A P S
The brilliant, eco-friendly alternative to clingfilm & tin foil for keeping food fresh...
THE NOOK wraps are handmade by Lou using 100% pure cotton, wax (from Frampton bees), jojoba oil and pine resin, beeswax wraps cling to food and containers simply by using the warmth of your hands to activate their natural stickiness. They are:
naturally anti-bacterial - beeswax & jojoba both contain natural anti-bac properties
food safe - made using 100% natural ingredients, keeping food fresh, clean and chemical-free
reusable - beeswax wraps last for 8 - 12 months - simply wipe or wash in cool water and mild detergent in between uses. If your wrap begins to lose its stickiness, reactivate by popping in a warm oven for 4 - 5 minutes or top up with a refresher bar - available from The Nook with full instructions!
bio-degradable - when your beeswax wrap has come to the end of its life just pop it in your compost bin or food recycling caddy!
bee-autiful - only the loveliest cotton fabrics are chosen for turning into beeswax wraps - making fridge interiors stylish too!
Not suitable for raw meat or fish
Do not use in the oven or microwave
Allow food to cool before covering
Beeswax is flammable - keep away from naked flames
