Unfortunately we cannot accept returns as beeswax wraps are used for food storage.
Simply wipe your wraps with a sponge using cold water with a tiny bit of dishwashing liquid OR rinse them under running cold water and leave out to air dry. For full care instructions, click here.
Whether you live in hot, humid or cold conditions – all of Earth Macros wraps should be away from direct sunlight.
The beeswax will melt and becomes sticky if exposed for long durations of direct sunlight. So it’s best to keep them away in a cool area like your tea towel drawer.
As our wraps are made of beeswax and tree gum which may leave a slight residue on your bowls or dishes. This is what allows it to “clings” and stick.
It’s natural and safe, simple use any vegetable oil (coconut oil or canola oil works well) to remove any residue. Then wash your bowl as you normally do.
Our wraps are made of 100% cotton fabric, 100% pure natural Australian beeswax, 100% pure Jojoba Oil, 100% organic coconut oil and food safe tree gum.

In colder climates or during winter, your wraps may harden or less sticky. First, make sure the surface you’re sticking the wrap to isn’t cold or wet.
To make the wraps more malleable, fold them or scrunch them up with the warmth of your hands. This will make them sticky again.
Here’s a simple way to restore your beeswax wraps:
- Place baking paper or parchment sheet down on a baking tray or baking mat – and lay your beeswax wrap on top.
- Heat the oven to 140°C and keep the door open and watch your wrap warm up (it should take 1-2 minutes)
- Once the wax from the wraps has re-melted, carefully take it out by its corners and hang it up quickly before the wax dries.
Or if there is less wax, consider purchasing our wax blend to revive your wraps like new again!
