I have a few kilos of cleaned beeswax and am not really sure what to do with it (it was an unexpected 'bonus' this year). My wife has found a number of instructions on how to make a beeswax-infused cotton cloths that you use in place of saran wrap. I like the idea of anything that reduces waste around the home, and it seems like a fun activity to do with my son over the xmas break...but I had a couple of questions about these that I couldn't find in any of the tutorials I read. I figured someone here must have made these in the past, and could offer some advice:
- Do these things really work - i.e. seal reasonably well to metal, glass or plastic containers and keep food fresh in the fridge?
- How do you clean them if they get soiled?
- How many times can they be used or cleaned before needing re-waxing or replacement?
