Apr. 21, 2022

Beeswax wraps are a joy to use - they are natural, versatile and can be reused for up to a year. But eventually, even these amazing wraps will wear out and need to be disposed of. It is at this point that we usually start thinking about what to do with them.

Should we just throw them away and hope they decompose quickly somewhere? I mean they are biodegradable, right? Well, we've got some answers for you - answers that will simplify your job considerably.


Is beeswax packaging recyclable?

While beeswax packaging can be refreshed and reused, they are not universally recyclable. Hopefully, this will be an option in the future.

Are beeswax packages biodegradable?

Beeswax packets are made from organic cotton, jojoba oil and gum. Therefore, they are 100% natural and biodegradable. So, when they reach the end of their useful life, simply add them to your compost pile or garden - the most environmentally friendly method of disposal available.

For effective composting, cut your packing material into small strips beforehand.


When it's time to compost beeswax wraps?

Since beeswax wraps can be refreshed over and over again, it can be difficult to know when it's time to call it a wrap. Here are a few signs to look for.

Excessive damage, tears or stains

Loss of adhesion

Strange odors that linger

Ultimately, the longevity of your beeswax wrap depends on the quality of your care. Some things you can do to get the most out of your wraps include


1. Wash them gently

Beeswax wraps should not be washed in the dishwasher. You must gently hand wash them in cold water - hot water will melt away the beeswax. All you need is a little water, mild soap and a rag to wipe them down.

Never use any bleach, vinegar, bleach, acids or solvents on these wraps.


2. Air dry them

Once you have washed your beeswax packages, hang them on your dish rack to dry and keep them out of direct sunlight. However, if you are in a hurry to use them, you can dry them with a dry towel.


3. Keep them away from heat

As we said before, beeswax packets are not ideal when it comes to heat. Therefore, you can keep them away from microwaves, ovens, stovetops, and even hot foods.


4. Keep them away from oil

Do not use beeswax packets if you are dealing with oily or saucy foods. Also, keep them away from raw meat and its juices.


5. Renew them if necessary

Once you notice that your packages are getting tired and wrinkled, it's time to refresh them by re-melting their wax. mBefore you do this, though, you must deep clean them. This is the only time you have to use hot soapy water on these packages, or even dry them outside in the sun.
