- Cut cotton fat quarters to size, typically one of the provided quarters will be good for keeping a variety of food fresh.
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees F
- Get the baking sheet out and place parchment paper on it, make sure it covers all of the sheet so clean up is easier.
- Lay out the cotton fabric (iron flat if needed) on the parchment paper.
- Sprinkle beeswax pellets (moderate amount) over it (apx. 15g per full sheet provided)
- Sprinkle Pine resin over the sheet and beeswax, getting the edges more than center as this is what helps the wraps be as sticky. (apx. 5g)
- Bake for 5 mins
- Use a paint brush to spread out the liquid beeswax evenly (make sure it’s only for use with beeswax)and wipe off excess into a Bounty towel to keep the bristles from cooling with wax on them. (Disclaimer: Some patterns’ colors will spread with the resin and beeswax mixture and some of the lighter colors will turn out slightly more yellowish)
- Hang on a hanger using clips for 3 minutes
- Test for stickiness, if not to the point of sticky wanted, you can add more pine resin and re-melt it over.
- Repeat the drying process and use once you are happy with its stickiness.
- Only hand wash with cold water, no dishwasher. Hand wash with dawn dish soap or similar gentle soap using a soft sponge only.
- Wash immediately after use to prevent crumbs and spills from soaking into the fabric over time.
- Pat dry with a towel and hang to dry.
- Do not use on hot items
- Re-cover with more beeswax when washing cycles produce flaky feeling or when wrap is no longer sticking.
