HOW DO YOU WASH IT?
It's so easy! After use, you rinse it in cold water and, if necessary, use some ecological alcohol free detergent. Do not use hot water! It should be hung at room temperature to dry.
CAN YOU PUT IN THE OVEN OR IN THE FREEZER?
beeopak contains beeswax so must NOT be used in an oven or microwave. It can be used safely in the freezer. After removing from the freezer, you should wait for around 5 minutes or until the beeopak has softened and become flexible before trying to unwrap the contents. Beeopak then is immediately ready for another use.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
If treated carefully and washed as per our instructions your beeopak could last for a year. Similar to most materials, over time its appearance may change a little, but its functionality will not be affected.
CAN YOU USE IT WITH ALL FOODS?
It is excellent for wrapping and protecting a range of different foods (cheese, vegetables, fruit, etc.), but since it can only be washed in cold water it should not be used to wrap raw fish or raw meat. When covering containers, the container and its contents should be allowed to cool to avoid any of the beeswax content of the beeopak melting..
E' CERTIFICATO PER IL CONTATTO CON GLI ALIMENTI?
The delicate scent of the beeopak is completely natural and depends on the wax used to prepare it which in turn is dependent on the flower pollens collected by the bees
WHY DOES THE WRAPPING BECOME MORE RIGID IN THE FRIDGE?
The beeswax ingredient in the beeopak hardens at low temperatures. "Cupping" it in your hands will make it malleable and adaptable for any use.
WHAT HAPPENS IF THE MATERIAL GETS FOLDS ON ITS SURFACE OR IT LOSES ITS “CLINGINESS”?
Don’t worry! beeopak is like clothing and with use can appear creased or a little worn. To revive it, spread it out on a sheet of baking paper and put it in the oven - pre-heated to 110° - for no more than 2 minutes. When the surface looks shiny again, remove it from the oven and hold the edges and waft it back and forth for a few seconds. It should look as good as new!.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET BEEOPAK IN PARTICULAR COLORS AND SCENTS?
At the moment the GOTS certified organic cotton fabric we us to make beeopak is purchased based on availability, and can change with each order, and with the seasons. Therefore, colours, patterns and scents vary. Although we cannot promise to supply an exact match to an advance order, we try to ensure that there is a choice available. Please contact us if you have some particular preferences and we will do our best to come up with a solution.
AFTER SEVERAL DAYS, THE CHEESE WRAPPED IN BEEOPAK DEVELOPED MOULD
Supermarket-bought cheese (wrapped in plastic) eventually develops mould, however, if this happens to cheese kept in the fridge wrapped in beeopak, the cheese if fine to eat and will have not lost any flavour if you scrape off the mould. This is because beeopak allows the “cheese” to breathe which a plastic wrapper does not.
THE BEEOPAK WRAP HAS LEFT A “RESIDUE” ON THE EDGE OF THE CONTAINER
A new beeopak wrap can leave a slight residue of wax on the edge of the container. This happens only for the first few uses and it can be wiped off using a dry cloth.
MY BEEOPAK WRAPS SEEM TO HAVE BECOME “DRY”
Your beeopak wraps should be stored in a closed container or large envelope, in layers. If left out in the open in the kitchen they can dry up a little. However, they can be "reactivated" by warming the sheets between your hands or making them into a ball and warming them in your hands. beeopaks like to be “fondled”!
COME MAI IL SUO BUON ODORE NON E' SEMPRE UGUALE?
Il delicato profumo di beeopak è completamente naturale e dipende dalla cera utilizzata per prepararlo e può cambiare in base ai fiori sui quali le api hanno preso il polline.
