The Oven Method
A word of warning, prepare to get waxy! We recommend you wear old clothes or an apron as making wraps is a sticky and messy process... and oh so fun!
There are many ways to make beeswax wraps, but this is our preferred and (we feel) easiest way.
You will need
- A knife
- Your old wrap or new piece of fabric
- A small paintbrush
- An oven
1. Pre-heat your oven to 90°C Fan Bake
2. With a knife, thinly cut the wax into thin slices. If you are having trouble cutting you can put the blade of your knife in hot water which should help it slice easier
3. Lay out your fabric piece on a baking tray lined with baking paper
4. Place the slices of wax evenly dispersed on top the fabric. Don’t worry if the fabric is not all covered with wax, as the wax will melt and spread out in the oven
5. Place the oven tray in the oven for 1-2 minutes, or until the wax has melted
6. Take the tray out of the oven. If the wax is not evenly spread, use a paintbrush to spread away excess or any wax that has built up or clumped on the wrap.
7. Drying the wrap: Lift the wrap off the tray and air dry over the baking paper for 30 seconds. Allow wax to drip off onto baking paper
9. Once you have air dried your wrap, leave it to dry further 30 minutes on a wire rack or draped over a clothes rack or piece of twine tied between two points.
