Apiwraps are a healthy, eco-friendly, sustainable replacement for plastic wrap – and it just WORKS! It's so easy to use and you can use your Apiwrap again and again for a year and often longer before you'll need to replace it. You're saving the earth from another piece of plastic and ultimately your wallet too!
Apiwraps is a business built on a firm foundation of quality, ethics and care. Made from the most gorgeous organic cotton fabric, then coated with a compound that is completely natural and free from chemicals, it's packaged in hygenic recycled paper envelopes.
Apiwraps are made from wax and do not need to be wet. Simply wrap the item you want to store and use the warmth of your hands to seal the wrap onto itself or the item you are wrapping. Apiwraps seal easily to any smooth natural surface. Apiwraps will not seal to some types of plastic.
How do I clean my Apiwrap?
Gently brush the wrap over with a soapy dishcloth/brush/wand (whatever you use) and rinse under cold water. Use a gentle hand soap rather then detergent. Air dry, or blot carefully with a tea towel, then store. Keep your Apiwraps rolled up next to the tea towels in a drawer or in a pretty container on the bench.
How long do Apiwraps last?
With proper care and attention to avoiding greasy or acidic foods, Apiwraps will last around a year. Every month or two it is a good idea to refresh your Apiwrap by placing it on a baking tray in the sun for the afternoon. This can also be done quickly using a hairdryer. This process will maintain a smooth and supple surface on your Apiwrap.
Will Apiwraps transfer flavour to my food?
Apiwraps have a pleasant honey scent, which comes from lovely unprocessed beeswax. Even when used to wrap butter I haven't found any transfer of flavour or scent. If you use your Apiwrap to cover a cut onion or blue cheese there may be some scent on the wrap after washing. Leave your Apiwrap out on the dish rack over night and this will dissipate.
Will Apiwraps leave a residue on my food?
You may notice some times that a little wax is left behind after unwrapping your Apiwrap. This is often because the item was warm when it was wrapped, melting the wax on more than usual. This residue can be removed by washing with soap, but is harmless as the wax compound is made from food safe ingredients. If residue is left on crockery it can be washed off the same way with soap and water.
Will foods stain my Apiwraps?
If you have your Apiwrap in contact with richly coloured foods like beetroot or tumeric they can transfer a little colour. Over time marks and stains can occur, be prompt to clean them to minimise significant staining. (This is an advantage of my richly patterned fabrics!)
Can I use Apiwraps in the microwave?
Can I use Apiwraps in the freezer?
Yes! Apiwraps work really well for keeping cookie dough and other freezer foods that would be kept with plastic wrap. Take a moment to let them come to room temperature before unwrapping.
Can I use Apiwraps to cover my fermenting foods?
Yes! Apiwraps are watertight, but the allow a little air circulation - they won't allow external yeast or bacteria to get in. This is the ideal environment for fermentation.
