How to make beeswax cotton food wrap with either an iron or oven - shows you TWO easy techniques to infuse beeswax into cotton material to make an alternative to plastic cling wrap. Learn to use EITHER an OVEN or an IRON to melt the wax. Eco-friendly beeswax cotton wrap is simple to make, lasts a long time and is a natural anti-bacterial way of keeping your food fresh. In this video you will see how I made FOUR different beeswax wraps:
A square wrap - to wrap large and small food items
A round wrap - to wrap food or cover plates or bowls
A cylinder shaped wrap and - a handy enclosed shape to wrap food
A pocket shaped wrap - a great addition to a lunch box
Recycling at its best: using a nearly new cotton blouse!
