How to make your own bee’s wax wraps

My sister gave my this book “Instead of Plastic” for Xmas and I can only recommend it to you: very practical tipps for how to reduce plastic in our daily life. For example: by making your own bee’s wax wraps. 

What you need: 
  • bee’s wax
  • 100% cotton textile
  • baking paper
How to make your own bees wax wraps:
  • Cut the textile! Choose the size you’d want
  • Heat the oven up to 80 degrees C
  • Put 2 sheet of paper on a baking tray
  • Cover the baking paper with the textile
  • Then place the bee’s wax on the textile and let it melt in the oven.
  • If you placed too much bee’s wax on the cloth, let the next textile soak in the rest of the bee’s wax.
  • I then took another baking tray, put baking paper on it and let the textiles dry there.

Have fun trying and let me know how it worked!
