We love our leftovers in this house. Come on — don’t give me that look — you know food tastes so much better when there aren’t any dishes waiting for you in the sink. Leftovers are right up there with take-out and doggy bags. But that means our refrigerator is always jammed, and we need lots of food storage options. Aaaaaaaaaand I’m also trying to give up disposable paper and plastic products lately. Not an easy combination. But my friends at Mightynest have been a big help. Remember my favorite water bottle? They introduced me to Bee’s Wrap, too. It’s so cool — it’s a reusable wrap that takes the place of plastics, baggies, and foil for storing food. Think of it as sustainable Saran wrap…pretty smart, huh? It means I can enjoy my leftovers, guilt free.
Bee’s Wrap is a brilliant idea — it’s organic cotton, infused with beeswax, jojoba oil, and tree resin — they permeate the fabric and make it naturally water resistant and reusable (just wipe it with cool water.) It’s naturally antibacterial, too, so your food stays fresh. Think of it as a sturdier, reusable form of waxed paper, but Bee’s Wrap is completely pliable, too, the warmth of your hands allows it to take whatever shape you want it to. Oh, and t smells great, sort of fresh and woodsy.
One of the things I like most about it is that Bee’s Wrap breathes, and is a much better, healthier, way to wrap food than plastic. Take cheese, for instance, plastic will suffocate it and make it spoil faster. I don’t know about you, but we spend a lot of money on our cheeses, and I want them to stay fresh. And you know how you can never keep a leftover baguette crisp on the outside? Bee’s Wrap is the answer to that too.
I’ve been working hard to get rid of disposables in my kitchen, I love my cloth napkins, and I recycle old towels and t-shirts for extra rags. I’ve stopped buying sponges and paper towels altogether.
Bee’s Wrap has been a real godsend for all those jobs that used to require plastic and foil.
