Before using it, firstly you need to activate your WrapAround Beeswax Wrap by crumpling it into a ball and holding it for approximately 10 seconds making it pliable with the warmth of your hands. This will allow you to mould the WrapAround Beeswax Wrap around food and over the top of your salad bowls, plates, fruits and vegetables. Cover your meal, fruits or vegetables with the WrapAround Beeswax Wrap and shape the edges with your hands making sure that the wrap seals tightly around them.
