What can I store in my wrap?
You can store a lot of things, here are a few of the more common items.
Cheese - first remove it from the packaging it came in and wrap it in an appropriately sized wrap.
Fruit & Veg - almost any and every kind of whole or cut produce (see below) can be uses with Wrappni, such as lettuce, tomato, celery, strawberries and more.
Half-cut Produce– form your wrap around the cut side of your item and wrap it snug.
Bread - For whole or half-used bread and rolls, Wrappini is the perfect wrapper.
Dough - The material is insulating and breathable so it is a perfect cover for rising bread dough. It is also suitable for covering fermenting foods such as yogurt, kefir and butter milk.
Frozen Food - Wrappini is happy to help out around the freezer for short-term jobs up to a month. For anything longer, consider alternate packaging.
What can't I store in my wrap?
Liquids – Whilst the coasting is fluid resistant it is not waterproof, so moisture will not leak through the actual fabric but heavy liquid will.
Sauce – Some of these may add a bit of colour to the wrap, so wash it immediately after use to reduce staining.
Meat – Cold cuts and cooked meat on your sandwiches are fine with your Wrappni. Place leftover meat and raw meat in a dish, cover and store in the refrigerator. We suggest avoiding direct contact with raw meat.
Acid – Pineapple has been known to eat Wrappni, it and other acidic foods are best stored in dish topped with a wrap lid. That also goes for anything too pungent, like raw onion and blue cheese.
How long will my wrap last?
The life span of your Wrappini will depend on how often you use it and how well you look after it. Take care of your wrap and it will last around 6 months.
If the wax begins to wear away, you can re-melt the wax to freshen your wrap, or even add more wax to give it a longer lifespan. The fantastic thing about our wraps is that they are made purely from natural ingredients, meaning you can pop them in the compost bin once you are finished. How about that for zero waste!
Does the wrap have a smell?
Yes. When you first open your Wrappni package you will smell the beeswax. The scent will fade after the first few uses and washes, until you can no longer detect it. The beeswax scent will change with the season in which it was harvested. Beeswax carries the scent of the flowers from which the bees harvested pollen. Most of us enjoy the scent, but there are a few people who are more sensitive to beeswax and do not prefer it.
Will using the wrap taint my food?
Despite strongly smelling of beeswax initially, this does not pass onto your food. The fragrance diminishes as the Wrappni wrap is used and washed over the first few weeks. The special use of beeswax and coconut oil provides the wrap with a very strong anti-bacterial seal so you can be assured your food is safe from contamination.
Cut I cut my wrap?
We recommend you avoid the temptation to cut your wrap unless you really need to. Your Wrappini is most functional in its full size. You can always over-wrap an item. It is your old relationship with plastic wrap that makes you think you have to cut your wrap to fit the exact item you are storing. You are going to have your wrap for a long time so keeping it in its full size will let you use it over and over on many sizes and shapes. If you do decide it must be cut, please use a very sharp scissors to create a clean cut.
Do I need to wet the wrap?
Wrappini is self-adhesive. You don’t have to wet it. The combination of beeswax, tree resin and coconut oil that coats the organic cotton fabric is very malleable at room temperature. It can adhere to virtually any solid food or container, so there is no need to wet it before you use it. Out of the packet your Wrappini is ready to go. In the fridge, your wrap becomes stiff and holds its new shape. A return to room temperature and some gentle manipulation by hand will soon soften it.
How do I store my wrap?
Simply roll or fold Wrappini and keep in with your other food packaging or in your linen drawer. Keep between cutting boards to store flat.
Why should I use a beeswax wrap?
Wrappini wraps eliminate the need for plastic food wrap. We offer an eco-friendly alternative to plastic - cling wrap, containers and bags, This is a very good thing, because plastic wrap is nasty stuff: it can leak, cause food contamination and is one of the worst pollutants on the planet.
Embrace a plastic-free food storage option for leftovers and snacks around your home and office. Beyond storage you can also get creative and use the wraps in a multitude of other ways, such as a fancy wrap for a bouquet of flowers or an alternate pouch for your travel soap.
Is Wrappini completely eco-friendly?
This is a big question. We have taken great pains to make the entire product - including the manufacture and packaging - as eco-friendly and food-friendly as possible. Everything we use is either non-toxic (our products are lead-free, bpa-free and phthalate-free), recycled or compostable (our packaging, marketing material and company stationery) and natural (beeswax, cotton and coconut oil are organic). We are fortunate to be based in Thailand so we can significantly lower our carbon footprint by buying all our ingredients locally; not to mention supporting Thai small business along the way.
How and where are the wraps made?
All our beeswax food wraps are handmade in Thailand. Our beeswax food wraps are made from 100% organic cotton, beeswax and coconut oil sourced in Thailand. This combination makes a fine mix between adhesiveness, pliability, breathability and hygiene (anti-bacterial).
