Beeswax Refresher Blocks
Good for your wraps. Better for the earth.
Mend your beeswax wraps to extend their life. Our refresher blocks are carefully hand-blended with Australian beeswax, organic coconut oil and natural tree resin. When applied to cotton fabric, this blend creates a pliable yet water-resistant food wrap with a natural adhesiveness being antibacterial and antifungal. Use to revitalize your favourite Beeswax Food Wraps to make it last even longer or you can make your own Beeswax Food Wraps with any cotton fabric that you have at home.
Beautifully packaged in a bonus* Beeswax Food Wrap, each package contains 50g of pre-blended refresher blocks and easy to follow instructions.
You can refresh at least 6 - 9 wraps or you can make four wraps - 2 x Small (8" x 8") and 2 x Medium (10" x 10")
Tip: The quantity of wraps is dependent on fabric thickness; the thicker/or tighter weave fabrics use more wax.
All you need to prepare at home is – an iron, ironing board, a used tea towel, a small knife for chopping beeswax into smaller pieces and a pinking shear (optional)
*Bonus beeswax wrap pattern may vary.
- Simply chop the beeswax blocks into smaller pieces to lightly sprinkle over the entire wrap.
- Place your worn-out wrap on a sheet of baking paper and sprinkle the chopped beeswax pieces over the wrap before covering with the second sheet of baking paper.
- Using your medium heat iron (steam off), apply little pressure on top of the wax. As the wax melts, gently distribute the wax evenly across the fabric making sure the edges are covered.
- Peel the top piece of baking paper and immediately lift the wrap by the corners and peel away from the baking paper.
- Waft in the air for 10 seconds until the wax dries. Wait a further 10 minutes for the wax to set fully.
- Tadaa! You have refreshed your beeswax food wrap! You can start using it straight away or store it for later.
