Eschewing Clingfilm - making bees wax wrap

 

Hello All

I don't know about you but his wet weather is starting to get me down a tad. I have huge amounts of brash and prunings to burn and there is not a chance at the mo. I am also trying to help the lock-down hens be happier, but am slipping and sliding in the mud and making little progress. Pushing a  wheelbarrow about in it is such hard work.

 We are trying to get the fruit trees pruned too, I guess some may have to go without this year. Let's face it, it might be poor gardening but it isn't life threatening so we will be philosophical  and do the best we can.

Continuing  my sustainability theme. Here is a sort of "tutorial (get me!)

I have never been a fan of cling film. Though it is a very convenient, it is single use, and un-recyclable .  An alternative way to cover dishes etc is to use bees wax wrap.  As I keep bees it is s no brainer for me. If you wanted to make your own I would say that an ounce of beeswax would do two dinner plate size wraps. The first pic shows what is needed, Cotton fabric off cut cut into shape with pinking shears., a block of bees wax; a grater to grate the wax ( in the jar) two sheets of greaseproof and an iron and ironing cloth.

pre heat iron to high.
on your ironing cloth place a sheet of greaseproof,  a sprinkling of grated wax, followed by a second sheet of greaseproof
Iron over the greaseproof , as the bees wax melts use the iron to spread ir over the cloth evenly.
The wax  will spread outside the fabric as it melts ensuring all is covered
Peel off the top layer of greaseproof from both sides and hold the cloth up for a minute and when cool it is ready to use. Here is is over a bowl .
The excess wax on the greaseproof can be peeled off and put back in the jar.
Hope that was clear.
Enough for now
Back soon

    2. I got my already programmed and blanked ATM card to withdraw the maximum of $1,000 daily for a maximum of 20 days. I am so happy about this because i got mine last week and I have used it to get $20,000. Mike Fisher Hackers is giving out the card just to help the poor and needy though it is illegal but it is something nice and he is not like other scam pretending to have the blank ATM cards. And no one gets caught when using the card. get yours from Mike Fisher Hackers today! *email cyberhackingcompany@gmail.com

    3. iI’m lauriel from New York, United States. I lost my job a few months back after my divorce with my wife. I tried everything positive to make sure I took good care of my kids but all failed, and I was in debt which makes everything worse. I was kicked out of my home and i had to live with my neighbor after pleading with her to allow me to stay with her for some days while I figured out how to get a home which she agreed to, but no one was willing to help anymore. I bumped into this page from google and I was excited about this, then I contacted the hackersBill Dean. I had just $200, so I pleaded with them to help me because of my condition but they never accepted. I believed in this, so I managed to pawn a few things and got $500. I ordered the $10,000 card and I got my card delivered to me by Ups 4 days later. I never believed my eyes! I was excited and upset as well, I managed to withdraw $2000 on the ATM and $2500 the second day. I went to Walmart and a grocery store and bought a couple of things for $3000. The card got blocked the third day and I contacted them and I was told it's a mistake from my end. I’m so happy, I have started all over again and have a good apartment with my kids you can contact him through is via email (globalatmcardhackingservice@gmail.com)or his whatsap contact (+1 301-887-5071)

    4. I was searching for loan to sort out my bills& debts, then i saw comments about Blank ATM Credit Card that can be hacked to withdraw money from any ATM machines around you . I doubted thus but decided to give it a try by contacting (globalatmcardhackingservice@gmail.com} they responded with their guidelines on how the card works. I was assured that the card can withdraw $5,000 instant per day & was credited with$50,000,000.00 so i requested for one & paid the delivery fee to obtain the card, after 24 hours later, i was shock to see the UPS agent in my resident with a parcel{card} i signed and went back inside and confirmed the card work's after the agent left. This is no doubts because i have the card & has made used of the card. This hackers are USA based hackers set out to help people with financial freedom!!

  2. My daughter offered me some beeswax wraps in place of clingfilm. But when I thought about it the only thing I use cling film for is to wrap round paint brushes.

  3. I use beeswax granules (food grade) Rinse them down with lukewarm water after use. Every 3 or 4 months, iron between two sheets of greaseproof/parchment to revive the clinginess.

    1. Yes they are easy to refresh aren't they? I don't really understand the food grade thingy. considering wax is a by product of harvesting honey, but I have seen it worded as such.

  5. I don't use cling film. I don't need it, and to be honest I have no idea how to use it anymore. I got a big roll of it 20yrs ago (almost to date) and at some point the jagged sharp edge of the box broke and I just couldn't bother to fix it. I still have that roll, but it's been st least 15 years since I've used it. I wanted to try beeswax wraps but then thought again - why would I make them, if I have no use to them? I use lidded containers, parchment paper or re-used plastic bags (like bread bags). I know, I'm a boring old fart.

    1. Deffo use bread bags etc and I place plates over bowls in the fridge.
      Agree re./ the sharp edge, absolutely lethal isn't it?

  6. I make wraps and they are, indeed, very easy to make. If they get a bit crumpled, I do the iron and paper process again and they come out like new.

  7. For us non-beekeepers, their wax is very expensive, but I see your wraps are re-usable.

    1. Wax is between £1.00 and £1.50 an ounce depending on your source, which will do at least two large cloths and you just keep refreshing them so that they last for years.

I want to share a blog and forums on how to get a real blank ATM card, i thank Mr Calvin who helped me with an already hacked ATM CARD and I was so poor without funds that I got frustrated. One morning while I was going through some stuff on the internet, I came across different comments of people testifying on how Mr Calvin has helped them from being poor to being rich through this already hacked ATM CARD. I was skeptical if this was true, I decided to contact him to know if he is real. He proved to me beyond all doubts that it was real. So I urgently ordered for my own blank ATM card by Contacting his email and today I'm also testifying about the good work of Mr Calvin.
