DIY Eco Food Wrap in Just 2 Minutes!

5 Materials
2 Minutes

This cloth is very expensive to buy, but you can do it yourself in less than 2 minutes! All you need is some cloth and beeswax. Then you iron it on!

Get all materials for this project:

Step 1: Take the 100% natural cloth (linen or cotton, or use the old bed linen or t-shirt). For this quick project, I took my old 100% cotton t-shirt (washed   )

You also will need 100% natural Bees Wax

Step 2: Grate the wax on a thin grater 

Step 3: Then cut a piece of cloth (any size and shape) and place it on parchment paper

Step 4: Dust the piece of cloth with finely grated wax

Step 5: And then cover with another piece of parchment paper.

Step 6: Iron it on low-medium heat until melting of the wax (try to spread it evenly)

Step 7: Let it cool down...

Step 8: Peel off parchment paper.


Ta-da-h! These can be used and reused! They are also eco friendly!

Clean if needed by wiping using cold (warm-like) water and soap and re-use :) I hope you enjoyed, give it a try!

    Do you only need to put the bees wax on one side?

    When I click the amazon link for the cloth, it shows me tension rods. Is there a preferred cloth that works better than just t-shirts?
