Suzy's Bees Wraps and BAgs

simple to use

Beeswax Wraps Starter Set in Save the Seas pattern

  Simply press the wrap into place over the container with the warmth of your hands.  
Or use as a flat wrap for leftovers, sandwiches, etc by placing food onto the wrap and folding Suzy’s Bees Wrap to cover - the wax will help to hold the Bees Wrap in the needed shape. 
With a few quick folds Suzy’s Bees Wraps can also be made into a snack bag for packing snacks.  

easy to care for

When your Suzy's Bees Wrap needs to be cleaned just rinse it in cool water. If it needs stronger cleaning, then a mild soap (no detergents!) and a soft cloth or sponge for a scrub should do the trick. Rinse and air dry and it is ready to use again. And again. And again.

In fact over our eight years of making and selling Suzy's Bees Wraps we have found that with gentle care they will last upwards of two years.

Care for the Earth

With Suzy's Bees Wraps there is no need to be concerned with plastic pollution damaging our beautiful Earth. When your Bees Wrap is no longer wrapping your food like it should it is compostable! 

Simply use your kitchen scissors to cut your spent wrap into thin strips and toss into your compost pile.


Care for Yourself

Plastic wrap is known to leach chemicals and cause certain health issues. Take a step towards caring for yourself and your loved ones by ditching the plastic and wrap your food with beeswax and love!

Cleaning your Bamboo Straws

 After every use, rinse your bamboo straw or shake in a jar of warm soapy water. A straw brush can also be used.

Once a month, you can add 1 Tbsp  vinegar to a pan of boiling water and soak the bamboo straw for a few minutes. 

Cleaning your Bamboo Cutlery

Using a regular mild dish soap wash your bamboo utensils in hot soapy water. 

Rinse bamboo utensils in warm water. Towel dry to minimise water soaking into cutlery.

If your bamboo utensils start to look or feel dry, rehydrate them with mineral oil, or  refractionated coconut oil.

Suzy's Bee Bags Care

Like high quality leather, waxed canvas looks and feels better the more you use it.

 It’s durable, water resistant, and breathable.  Suzy's Bee Bags are made to be used and loved. Any scuffs and marks they pick up along the way only add to their character. So, understand: when we say “care for,” we don’t mean “keep it looking like you never use it.” 

Cleaning Basics

*Remove dried mud, sand and grit as soon as possible.

*Hose off or sponge wipe with cold water only. If dirt is ground in, gently brush it off with a soft bristled brush and then rinse.

* Hang to dry naturally for at least 24 hours in a dry, well-ventilated area.

* Reproof the entire garment after cleaning.


Simple Cleaning

  A few scuffs and a little dust isn’t going to kill your waxed canvas. But if you’ve got some mud or major dirt to deal with, let the mud dry and then gently scrub it away with a bristled brush. If needed, spray the waxed canvas with cold water for additional cleaning. And if you’re dealing with a tough spot that you really want to clean up, add a small amount of mild soap (NOT DETERGENT) to the cold water. Then rinse and allow to air dry. Do NOT dry clean or machine wash your waxed canvas bag or jacket!  

 

Bee -t the Heat

Do not put waxed canvas in a dryer, and do not try to clean it with hot water! Extreme heat will break down the wax coating. While it’s of course fine to bring your waxed canvas bag on a hike in the hot sun, you may notice the material softening. This is not a concern, and the material will return to normal when it’s back at room temperature. But, on that note, take care to not leave your Suzy's Bee Bag in your hot car all summer long.   

Suzy's Bee Bars to re-wax

  Over time, you may find the wax coating beginning to thin, or notice spots where the waterproofing has broken down. You can restore your Suzy's Bee Bag  by re-waxing it. This is a simple process which only requires a Suzy's Bee Bar and a hair dryer to help soften the wax when applying. 

Simply rub Bee Bar over the spot to re-wax applying a coating of wax - then warm the area with a hair dryer to allow the wax to melt and absorb into bag.

  Overall, remember: waxed canvas changes appearance over time. It will show scuffs and marks, and it will become shiny in places. Don’t worry about that stuff - it’s what makes waxed canvas unique and, in most cases, is not evidence of the wax “rubbing off.”
