How to refresh your wrap

TIPS

  • Chill the refresher block in the fridge overnight to make it easier to grate/slice. (Be careful of your fingers when cutting the block!)
  • Be careful not to spread over the edge of the grease-proof paper onto the iron!
  • Store left over wax in the box.
  • Clean the grater with hot water from the kettle, do this outside on grass or soil as wax will solidify in your sink/drain!

You need

  • An old towel
  • Kitchen Grater
  • Iron (steam off, medium/high setting)
  • 2 x grease-proof paper or parchment paper (5cm larger than the wrap, keep to reuse)
  • 1 x refresher block

Iron Method

  1. Grate as much of the beeswax block needed for the repair (tip: chill block in the fridge overnight before grating)
  2. Protect your work surface or ironing board with an old towel
  3. Place your first sheet of baking paper on the protected surface
  4. Lay a square of fabric on top
  5. Spread the grated wax, evenly, over the area needing repaired or the whole wrap if refreshing a well used wrap. If difficult to grate, place block back in the fridge
  6. Place the second sheet of baking paper on the fabric
  7. Gently press the hot iron on the parchment layers, keep iron moving. Use the iron to spread the melted wax over the repair area or full wrap
  8. Once the wrap looks all wet and covered gently lift top sheet (place sheet to one side, wet side up)
  9. Pick up the wrap by two corners and waft for 30 seconds until dry
  10. Your wrap is now good to go
