      1. If you give this a go, let us know how you got on. Enjoy having a go too. This method has already mentioned is the easiest method. Remember though, they can’t go in the microwave.

  1. This is such a great idea and I brilliant idea to get rid of all that plastic wrapping I use. I’ll be giving this a go for sure once my cast is off. Thank you for sharing!

  2. This version looks pretty easy. During my visit to NZ I tried making one that had rosin in it as well, which is supposed to make the wax mixture slightly sticky so the wrap clings better to itself and bowls etc. It didn’t work very well, went all lumpy. I’ve got stuff to try again but haven’t got around to it. The other thing is that jojoba oil is quite expensive.

    1. athough you don’t need much, so if you can get a small bottle it’s not too bad. I read up on it a bit because there are also versions of the wraps which use other oils like almond oil, and I discovered that jojoba oil is not really an oil it’s a wax which is liquid at room temperature. This is good because most oils will gradually develop a slightly “off” flavour over time as they oxidise in air which jojoba doesn’t. Jojoba also has mild antibacterial properties.

      The main thing with using the wraps is that you can only wash them in cold or cool water, so they shouldn’t be used where they’re in direct contact with raw meat or anything like that which would require hot washing to get rid of bacteria.
