beeswax food wrap

A while back I talked about my effort to reduce the amount of paper and plastic our family uses in the kitchen. I'm happy to say we've all been pretty good about using fabric napkins and un-paper towels which is just wonderful. 

So I decided to take things a bit farther and give beeswax food wraps a try. I scoured the internet for tips and tutorials on what to do and not do, purchased all my supplies, and got to work.

I was super excited about this project and imagined myself making tons and tons of wraps. And then I started making some (I used the oven method), and quickly realized this just wasn't for me :( as I found the whole process too messy and a bit stressful. I did, however, finish a few wraps but I don't think I did it right and pieces of wax were sort of peeling off when I folded the wrap, ooops.

Now, this was definitely not my shiniest moment and, to my family's delight, I ended up throwing the finished wraps in the trash. I am, however, super happy I gave it a try. Because how would I know I didn't like making beeswax food wraps if I didn't try it first, right?

So here's to trying new things, and to failing as well. Because it's all part of the process :)

Wishing you all a happy and creative rest of the weekend. Svetlana


  1. Awesome you tried. ;-) Now cloth napkins I can really get behind. We use those all the time...

  2. I've wanted to try this, too, but always imagined that it would not go well... I think I will skip the making and just look to buy some :)

  3. Thanks for giving us the lowdown - a good "fail" is appreciated, not because we want you to fail, but because it's a good lesson learned and shared. You totally have the right attitude about it, too!!

    I've been using silicone lids and covers for the last five? years or so and love them. GIR (Get It Right) makes a wide selection, including oblongs, but they're not the only ones. They're not "natural" but they're dishwasher, microwave and freezer-safe. We use them for covering bowls in the fridge, keeping flies off the food when eating outdoors, reheating leftovers and covering cake pans when out on the counter. There are a number of things they don't work for, obviously, but they have cut down on how much plastic wrap and aluminium foil we use significantly, and much cleaner microwave....!

    1. Love that, thanks for sharing. Will definitely have to check them out because I'd totally take a cleaner microwave :)

  4. The bought ones work just as well and still achieve the ultimate goal of reducing waste. :)

  5. thanks for sharing your un-shiny moment with us! and great job trying something new

  6. thanks for sharing..... keeping it real :-)

  7. Well thank you so much for your post! I was like... "ooh here is one of my favorite bloggers doing a thing I am curious about but imagine is a hassle" so while I'm sorry it didn't work out, thank you for being honest about the results and saving me time!
