Like anything the more you look after your beeswax wraps the longer they’ll last.
Rinse your beeswax wraps under cold water after use, if they are extra grimy use a light detergent to help remove stubborn stains. Hang your wraps to dry before storing them in a cool dark place, if you live in steamy climates it is a good idea to keep them in the fridge.
Do not use hot water to wash your wraps as this will melt the wax off and they won’t last as long. If you've made this mistake don't worry you can give them a refresh with a bar of beeswax, here's how.
How to dispose of your wraps
Generally speaking, your wraps should last you 12-18 months if they are getting tatty and are losing their grippiness then there are a couple of things you can do. Firstly, you can use beeswax and re-wax your wraps but if they are beyond repair simply throw them into your compost bin or bury them in your garden.
