While I’ve found several great replacements for plastic food storage in our kitchen, one item that has eluded me for some time is a natural plastic wrap alternative.
We plow through tons of produce each week and cook most of our meals from scratch, which makes adequate food storage a major concern in my kitchen.
My favorite food-safe containers:
I don’t use plastic wrap very often, but some foods (half of a melon, homemade bread) and containers (mixing bowls, baking dishes, pitchers) are tricky to cover without the (potentially toxic) clingy stuff.
What’s a natural gal to do?
Have you heard of Bee’s Wrap?
It’s a reusable food storage cloth coated with beeswax (and a few other natural ingredients like jojoba oil). In other words, a natural plastic wrap alternative. Hooray!
We’ve been using it in our home for a few months now, and I’m impressed.
Here’s the run down…
- Easy to wash
- Easy to store
- Available in a variety of sizes
- Safe, natural ingredients
- Seals well
- Cost effective over time
- Doesn’t stick to itself (like cling wrap–doesn’t that drive you crazy!?)
- Doesn’t seal as perfectly as cling wrap.
- Some claim it has a smell and taste that affects their food. I haven’t noticed this.
A few ways we’ve used Bee’s Wrap:
- preserve half of a melon
- wrap homemade bread
- cover a glass baking dish
It’s also great for:
- half an avocado
- half a lemon
- any container without a lid
I’m really pleased with Bee’s Wrap as a natural plastic wrap alternative! Mr. Native Texan helps quite a bit in the kitchen–he does dinner clean up most nights and on the weekends. He’s probably used our Bee’s Wrap covers as much as I have, and is equally enthusiastic about them. Let’s just say that sometimes he doesn’t love my
hippie natural solutions…
Here’s the best news: you can try a set of two Bee’s Wraps (large and medium) for just $3!
Yep, it’s true.
