Use the warmth from your hands to shape and seal Cling Cloth to protect from air and moisture while letting it breathe naturally like natural food barriers such as peels or rinds. Absolutely perfect for cheese, keeps herbs longer, beautifully secures your sandwich, stylishly covers a bowl. The cloth will hold its shape and cling as it cools, creating a seal.

Cling Cloth is made of certified organic cotton, UK sourced beeswax, organic jojoba oil, and tree resin. The jojoba oil and resin provide anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, and help give the beeswax wrap the best texture and level of tackiness.
Use the warmth of your hands to wrap Cling Cloth around a piece of food or over a container. When the Cling Cloth cools (in seconds!) it maintains the seal. Cling Cloth is not recommended for use with raw meat.
Wash your Cling Cloth in cool water with a mild dish soap. (Avoid sources of heat, such as hot water and microwaves.) Air dry, fold and store in a drawer or in a basket on the counter. The beeswax and jojoba oil have antibacterial qualities that help to keep your food fresh and allow you to use the Bee’s Wrap again and again.
Depending on usage, Cling Cloth will last for up to a year or more with proper care. When it has completed its life, you can add it to your compost and it will biodegrade naturally. No waste – yipee!
Yes. When you first open your package of Cling Cloth you will smell the beeswax, and perhaps a bit of pine from the resin. Depending on the batch of beeswax and when it was harvested, the aroma may vary, but it will fade after the first few uses and washes.
There is a Cling Cloth for a variety of needs. We recommend starting with our variety pack of three sizes, which includes one each of our small (20 cm x 20 cm), medium (25 cm x 25 cm), and large (33cm x 33 cm) flats. If you are a frequent artisan bread consumer, you’ll definitely want a Cling Cloth Bread Wrap, and then you’ll wonder how you ever got by without it!
We ship world wide. However, we focus on British Isles and Europe as there are comparable products produced in the US, Canada, New Zealand and Australia and we would rather locals support those companies and keep the environmental costs of shipping to a minimum.

However, if you live in a far-flung (from the UK of course) area and would love to try our wraps, we will get it to you in the best way possible!

Because Cling Cloth is used for food storage, we are unable to accept returns. However, if you have received a damaged product or package for any reason, please contact us.
Great question! We’ve carefully considered that question too. Our whole purpose for existing is to do more to maintain our beautiful environment and all the life within it, so this is something we of course care about.

Based on our research, we believe that using bee products from small, local and ethical bee keepers actually helps the bee population. And by being conscientious consumers we encourage and support more ethical beekeeping operations and practices, which in turn benefits the bee populations.

Beeswax would be wasted if we didn’t gather it for candles, moisturisers, lip balms and food wraps! The wax serves to cap the little hexagons of honey stored in honeycombs; left undisturbed, bees tunnel through it in winter and discard the wax as hive trash. Beekeepers have to slice off the wax to get to the liquid gold during honey harvests anyway, so why not use it?

If you have additional, well-informed information you would like to share on this question, we’d love to hear it! We feel strongly that using Cling Cloth is a win-win-win decision. Good for you, good for the environment, and good for the bees!

In the mean time, we are seriously researching developing a vegan Cling Cloth using other natural wax sources. If you feel that would be a preferable option for you, please let us know!

Absolutely!

We’ve done the math. On average depending on size, a plastic bag is about 5p each (really more… but we’re being generous). If you use just 3 a week to store your cheese, cut fruit, or sandwiches, that adds up to over £18/year. A Cling Cloth will last you that long easily with care, and will cost 1/3 as much per unit.

Of course it is a bit more difficult to determine a like for like comparison to cling film. However, we all know how much waste is associated with using cling film as it is difficult to use, you need much bigger areas to cover your item, and it often doesn’t work, leaving you to use multiple pieces just to get your bowl or item covered properly.

And then there is all the wasted food that goes bad much quicker when kept in plastic!

We think the choice is clear – and think you will too.
