HOW TO REFRESH YOUR WRAP

1. Iron Method (Ideal)

You need an old tea towel, 2 x sheets of baking paper 2 inches larger than your wax wraps, and an iron (Low Setting and NO STEAM).

 

Put the wax wrap in the middle of the sheet of baking paper, and then cover it with the second sheet of baking paper.

Move the iron across the wrap. Do not hold on to one spot to prevent the wax from burning. Once all the wax is melted, lift the iron away and quickly remove the top sheet of baking paper. Quickly (as the wax will begin to harden fast) lift the wrap away from the board and hold the wrap by the corners until it cools enough for the wax to harden again. This will only take a few seconds.

Done - wrap is all ready to use again!

 

2. Oven Method (Not for Gas ovens)

Place your beeswax food wrap on a silicone mat then onto a baking sheet (if you place the wrap straight onto a baking sheet it will become sticky and hard to clean). 

 

Heat in the oven for around 1 minute at a low temperature (150° F) until the wax has started to melt.

 

Once the wax is melted remove the tray from the oven immediately and pick the wrap up holding it by the corners. The heat melts the beeswax and it redistributes to places the wrap is cracked and limp. 

 

Hold the wrap by the corners until it cools enough for the wax to harden again. This will only take a few seconds.

Done - wrap is all ready to use again!
