Regular price £13.00 Sale

To add to our reusable beeswax wraps we've come up with these totally versatile sandwich bags and snack bags , these again work with just the heat of your hands to seal the wrap around your lunch or anything you would usually wrap in tin foil or cling film, these are big enough to use to wrap a one or two sandwiches in the sandwich bag and a handful of carrot sticks, a cut apple or orange, some nuts or crackers a portion of popcorn etc ,  these are ideal for loose produce take a couple with you to Tesco, Sainsbury's, Morrisons or Asda to buy  things like garlic, ginger, or other such small items,

These are made with locally sourced beeswax and top grade extra virgin olive oil, we've opted for olive oil as an alternative to jojoba, and pine resins, as both are not commonly used in the food industry these are (usually used in cosmetics and coatings) the oil helps keep the wrap pliable and aids the sticking process.

Beeswax has natural anti-bacterial properties, which will help to keep your food fresh longer as does olive oil.

The sizes are as follows,

sandwich bag  20cm,  x 20cm. excluding fold over flap

snack bag 12 X 14 cm ex fold over flap

you will receive one of each in this  pack

We've given them names just so you can choose which colours suits you best,

These bags  should last up to and beyond 9 months probably up to a year, when they are entirely spent simply throw in the compost to rot down,

They are not to be used  with raw fish or meat,  (cooked meat and fish is fine) do not place in the washing machine or dishwasher and they are not to be used in the microwave,

To store :
Keep out of direct sunlight
Keep away from heat
Store in a dark and COOL place between use.

To clean:
Using a damp cloth or sponge with a little cool water and mild detergent , simply gently wipe your bag down and leave to dry.

Note:
There may be a naturally occurring slight beeswax aroma which will disappear after a few uses.
There will be naturally ocurring creases in the wraps as you use them , this is perfectly normal.
After time you may feel the need to refresh your wraps - this can be done by placing a wrap flat on to a baking tray and popping into the oven at 90 degrees for approx 4-5 minutes. or ironing between 2 sheets of grease-proof paper with a hot iron
