A more eco-friendly alternative to cling film really. They're re-usable and pretty popular from what I've seen. For three at 35cm x 35cm, this is the best price I can see. There are similar at 30cm x 30cm costing similar to these. Some with delivery on top.

Delivery here is free when you use code SHIP

Do keep in mind that you shouldn't use these for raw meats / fish.

Can they be re-purposed as reusable toilet paper?
The Mrs was on about these the other week, not sure if this is a good price, but bought some and heat added.
These are a brilliant alternative to cling film. We’ve used them for about 3 years now.

so the same ones last 3 years? How do you clean them between uses?
What's the reason they can't be used with meat?

Likely the cleaning you would need to carry out inbetween use to render safe would be detrimental to the fabric/wax mix.

Clean with warm soapy water. It doesn’t remove the beeswax from the material. Don’t really know the science behind it, but it does!
You can buy an awful lot of recyclable aluminium foil for the same price - which can be used on meat/fish.

A bit pricey for that purpose.

hardly any aluminium foil is recycled and aluminium has many environmental issues.

Do they wear with use? Surely the bees wax that make them sticky would degrade within that time especially with repeated washing?

This is a good price, you’ll find them in garden centres and the like being sold for £20 upwards - Often that is the reason that people don’t tend to buy them.

Actually, ever since the documentary came out about Chinese children picking through the recycling that other countries had paid China to take, the backlash for China was such that they stopped accepting other countries’ recycling waste. The sad reality is that hardly any of the recyclable waste in this country now gets recycled.
As a bee keeper I have been used to having these for many years, we always sold them through the local beekeeping association at agricultural/ summer fairs.

Despite my history with them, I cannot recommend them for a number of reasons:

- They don't 'wrap' like tin foil/ cling film, they simply cover exposed bowls/ plates etc. As a result, your food will still dry out in the fridge as it isn't sealed/ covered in the first place.

- The wraps don't last a huge amount of time, beeswax will be removed from the cloth after every wash thus making it worse over time

- As others have said, tin foil is much more versatile, still recyclable, and much cheaper which is why I still use it.

I really want to encourage the use of bee products but these just aren't that great
