Good Things To Know

What is Lilybee Wrap?

LilyBee Wraps and Bags are a natural, reusable and beautiful alternative to disposable plastic wrap and bags for food storage.

Made from cotton infused with our beeswax solution, Lilybee makes for an easy and fun step towards turning your good intentions into actions.

Lilybee also helps prevent food waste - because our wraps are breathable your food stays fresher for longer, protecting the planet and your wallet!

Bread keeps its crust while staying fresh and moist inside. Cheese stays fresh without dried out edges, and without sweating. Fruit and vegetables stay fresher for longer without shrivelling or going soggy.

Ingredients

Just four: Cotton fabric, beeswax, coconut oil and tree resin.

Pure cotton fabrics are chosen for their quality and beautiful designs. Pure New Zealand beeswax is sourced from ethical beekeeping friends who we built relationships with during our 15 years as beekeepers.

Coconut oil is sourced from our neighbouring Pacific Island communities and refined here in New Zealand, and natural tree resin is also Pacific sourced.

Choose Your Packaging

We love reducing waste wherever we can, and not just plastic.  Your wraps can be individually banded, but if you’re buying just for yourself, you’re probably going to only read one of them, right?

On the other hand, if you're buying for gifts, you might want them to be individually banded.

Select how you want your wraps packaged, and help us save a few trees. If you don't specify, we will band each item, just in case.

How To Use Your Lilybee Wrap

LilyBee Wrap is a natural, reusable and beautiful alternative to plastic wrap for food storage. 

Cover bowls, wrap sandwiches and and much more, using the warmth of your hands to press the wrap or bag to seal, keeping food fresh in the fridge or out, and on the go.

Lilybee make great gifts - thoughtful, stylish, eco-friendly, and economical to post.

How To Care For Your LilyBee Wrap
  1. Avoid heat including hot water, the dishwasher and microwave! Let hot foods cool before wrapping them
  2. Wash with cool water and mild dish detergent after every use, and rinse well with cool water.
  3. Air dry on a dish rack or hang in the shade, then roll up to store in a jar or fold to lay flat in a drawer

With this simple care your wrap should easily last a year or more.

What Food Can I Use My Wraps On?

Actually it's much easer to define what NOT to use them for: raw meat. Meat juices need to be cleaned with hot water, and since the wraps can only be cleaned with cool water, we do not recommend this.

Wraps are wonderful for keeping half onions fresh, but the onion can leave a distinct odour, so we recommend keeping a specific wrap for this.

Will My Food Stay Fresh?

Yes! Beeswax Wraps provide moisture retaining protection that stops food drying out, but are also breathable, which prevents foods becoming soggy. Your food will retain both flavour and texture for much longer.

The wrap acts much like the skin of a fruit, which explains why fruits and vegetables stay so much fresher for longer in a wrap than in plastic or other packaging.

Bread keeps its crust while staying fresh and moist inside. Cheese stays fresh without dried out edges, and without sweating. Fruit and vegetables stay fresher for longer without shriveling or going soggy.

Can I Use Beeswax Wraps In The Freezer?

While the wraps themselves do just fine in the freezer, they should only be used for very short-term freezer storage.

This is because the wraps are breathable, which means over time food stored in them could become freezer-burnt.

Better to keep your wraps for fridge storage.

How Long Will My Lilybee Last?

With regular use and normal care your Lilybee wraps and bags will easily last a year, but that's just the start!

We have many customers who have been using their Llybees for 3 years or more.

If your wraps do eventually become less sticky but the cotton fabric is still intact and you adore your design, you can refresh your wrap with new wax solution yourself at home. Our wax blocks contain our LilyBee secret solution. See more here.

Used And Loved Your Wrap Until The End Of Its Life?

When your beeswax wrap is finally worn out, you have have a few options!

  1. If the cotton fabric is still intact and you adore your design, you can refresh your wrap with new wax solution yourself at home. Our wax blocks contain our LilyBee secret solution. See more here.
  2. Use your end of life LilyBee as a natural firelighter! Use it in fireplaces or in the bbq for a natural and easy way to start a fire. Don't have a fireplace? Gift your wraps to someone who does!
  3. All our wraps are 100% compostable, so add your end of life wrap to your home compost with your other organic waste to watch it break down.

Very useful and beautiful too. I can think of various uses for them. I keep them in stock so I can give them as gifts to my friends when they come and visit.
