How Can I Extend the Life of Beeswax Wraps?

Dec. 30, 2022

Beeswax wraps typically last for 6-12 months, but the exact lifespan will depend on how frequently they are used and how well they are cared for. To extend the life of the wraps, it is important to avoid exposing them to heat, moisture, and direct sunlight, and to clean them gently with cool water and mild soap when needed. After 6-12 months, the wraps may lose their stickiness and may need to be refreshed with more beeswax, or they may need to be replaced.
