These were a little weird at first, but quickly became my favorite item in the kitchen. Have ordered more for friends at Christmas. Easy to use, clean and durable too. Wish they came in larger sizes too, to wrap bigger items, or across a casserole dish. I’ll keep checking, and hope I see bigger sizes soon. Love these! And so good for the environment.
I have been using these about 3 months now and I recently ordered another set. I love them, they work great and are easy to clean. I would not use them for say an onion or something like that, they might abosrb the smell or onion flavor, but have wrapped cheese, avocado in them and used on all shapes of bowls and they are great. Must have saved a roll of saran wrap by now, everyone should use these! I also have the beeswrap brand and they are exactly the same, if anything this brand is a little better.
Just started using them and they are working exactly as described. I recommend watching the videos. They are short and provide good tips on using the wraps to get the most of them and know what they can and cannot be used for as well as how to care for them and get the most out of your investment. Well done on the videos, Etee!The only trouble I had was when wrapping food directly and not in a see-through bowl, I forgot what was in them. I keep a roll of painter's tape in my knife drawer and will remember to label them next time so I don't have to unwrap them to remember what was in the brightly colored package.The bright colors are great. They won't get lost in the fridge.So far, so good. I'm always on the lookout for sustainable products to use in the kitchen that are also free of toxins.
*Independent review with no discounts or freebies given. Results are based on a month worth of use.These fabulous wraps were purchased out of sheer “lid rage”. I want to say it’s purely out of my love for the planet, but it’s 50/50 Earth love and insanity over stolen pieces of plastic (thieving toddlers). Thankfully, even right out of the box, these wraps do the job quite well - from sealing bottle tops to holding 1.5 lbs. of Orbeez slush in, even turned upside-down and shaken!- TRUTH IN ADVERTISING: Product specs are accurate in terms of measurement.- TEXTURE: Texture reflects the hemp/cotton/beeswax ingredients and sounds a little like sandpaper when they touch each other. They are very malleable and will soften with use but surprised me with how rigid they were out of the box. Despite not being “activated”, the little blue one actually conformed to the bottle right away (see video). They DO leave a residue on your hands the first 10 washes or so. I’ve washed them about 20 times so far and there’s still a bit of gunk but nothing too annoying.- SMELL: I was anticipating a smell due to the essential oils, jojoba, and resins, but they really just smell like wax with a hint of clover and don’t pass it on to the food or liquid.- EFFECTIVENESS: As you can see from the video, they were effective right out of the box. They contain liquids, solids, gels, and will wrap up into a little ball for trail mixes, berries, etc. I wouldn’t wrap chips or anything delicate in the wrap alone, but they seal effectively, especially when you use them properly! *See notes below on that...I didn’t follow protocol. Whoops!- STORAGE LENGTH: As a little experiment (because I apparently have too much time on my hands) I cut up some apples with a metal knife to purposefully introduce some oxidation. Stored 1/4 the apple in the blue wrap with plenty of extra coverage (and this was right after the orbeez video so it hadn’t touched other food) another 1/4 in a freshly washed Rubbermaid plastic storage container, the other 1/4 in a plastic dish with cling wrap, and the final portion just on the shelf. After 5 days in the refrigerator, completely untouched, the wrapped apples were slightly turning brown and starting to curl on the edges while the plastic container experienced just slight browning with very little contraction. Cling wrapped were just as brown as the wrap, and the shelf apples were curling, all brown, and inedible. After 10 days, I wouldn’t eat any of them, but the apple slices in the wrap were significantly drier and more oxidized than the Rubbermaid container, the cling wrapped ones were wet and completely brown, and I’d had to remove the shelf apples by day 7 because they were leaking and gross. Now, this may sound like a negative but I hope it isn’t taken that way. There was obviously more gas exchange possible with the wrap and they don’t claim that they are air-tight, but that also means they won’t retain nasty moisture that leads to spoiling. What this does prove, however, is that the wraps WILL keep your food safe for a reasonable amount of time (no one eats over-a-week-old apples from the fridge I hope) and you don’t have to worry about chemicals leaching into your food.Tips from an organic food wrap newbie:1. Watch the video below item description or go to the website provided on the info card enclosed! I didn’t pay attention to the “activation” process - as you can see in the video - so the first time I tried to seal the green wrap over glass it didn’t stick at all. Bunch it up in your hand really well to transfer heat and get the wax to melt a little, then use. You’ll have to do this every time you use them too but it only takes a second.2. Listen to the instructions about washing with cold water! I admit I have used warm water because I couldn’t get the smell of radishes out, but of course, it lost some of its “waxiness”. It still works, and I anticipate them lasting quite a while, but do heed the instructions!3. Make sure they are DRY before storing! I didn’t have an ideal place to hang dry them (what with the aforementioned thieves living here) and ended up folding and putting them away too soon. This resulted in a tiny bit of mold growth. Thankfully, the wax seemed to have kept it out of the fibers so it washed right off.Overall I am VERY pleased with these wraps and will be purchasing more. Even my husband was impressed and he doesn’t care about this stuff. Gone are the days of useless “cling” wrap filled with low-density polyethylene (LDPE) or polyvinylidene chloride (PVDC) that don’t even stick — in spite of curses and physical threats! You can stop wrestling with non-biodegradable film, feel better about saving the planet, and protect your food at the same time.
These work beautifully! I like them better for produce, sandwiches, and anything else that is loose and tends to fall apart if not tightly wrapped. I like them MUCH better for covering bowls, too: much less fiddling around with plastic or aluminum foil to get it tight, because these wraps stick to themselves much better than plastic,and they hold better than foil. Easy to clean, easy to use.In fact, for some items they are better than the modern choices: cheese, for instance, lasts longer and keeps its consistency better when NOT wrapped in plastic or aluminum foil. But using the recommended cheese paper is more expensive and require tape. These wraps are PERFECT for that use! As for some other comments that mention a smell: there is a pleasant "woodsy" scent, but nothing strong, unpleasant, or overpowering. It does not transfer to food and I only smell it when I'm in the process of putting the wraps around food; once it's in the fridge, I don't smell it at all, though I wouldn't mind if I did.UPDATE 04/03/2018: Still very pleased--adding a picture of an avocado I cut the day before. This was the first time I'd used these wraps for an avocado. You know how it is: you don't need all of it and dink around to get the plastic wrap just right so no air reaches the avocado and turns it brown. You also put a little lemon juice on to aid with the browning. Sometimes it's a struggle, and sometimes, no matter what you do, you end up with at least a little browning. But these wraps MORPH--when you wrap them around a shape, they stay in that shape and then you just twist-scrunch the ends to tighten. No lemon juice. No dinking around. Just fast, easy, and the below picture shows what the avocado looked like just now when I pulled it out of the fridge when I made my sandwich. I continue to be very pleased!
Love these! I've been looking for ways to reduce my family's exposure to plastics and these are great for replacing saran wrap, plastic containers and bags. You've got to "activate" them in order for them to work properly...essentially scrunching them up into a ball so the warmth of your hands makes the wax more sticky - super easy. I also appreciate these are made in Canada with natural ingredients (that scent? it's beeswax!) and organic cotton! Highly recommended.
