If you want to bee the life of your next party, show up carrying your salad in a bowl covered by a homemade beeswax cover. Everyone will be asking for the name of the hip new marketplace selling them. You will definitely create a buzz when you tell them you made them yourself.
It’s a beautiful way to reduce daily plastic waste and be more eco-friendly. These reusable covers are washable so they’ll last up to a year and then all you have to do is re-wax them. Sounds like you’ll get a double re-use score when you make and use your own beeswax food wraps.

Love the happy music! Now I’m off to buy more beeswax
Thank you for noticing the music. I always have so much fun picking out just the right tunes. 🙂 Have fun!!!
So cool!! What a great idea!
Thank you Susan!!!
I love this, I’ve been wanting to get some of these. I’m trying to use less plastic this year.
Meeeeee, too! Thank you Barb, I hope you get a chance to make a few of these.
I’m thrilled to see this post! On a visit to a pal in New Zealand, she had a grip of these made by another friend and I thought brilliant. How can I do that?
Thank you so much for your kind comment Kate! It’s nice people like you that make me want to keep doing this. 🙂
What a neat idea… great gift idea too. One question… how do you clean them?
Hi Jean, you can clean them with a cool/lukewarm cloth. The wax should last about a year and then you can rewax them. 🙂
