One Good Find: Reusable Food Wrap

A plastic wrap replacement that seals with the warmth of your hands

Demetria Provatas

I really dislike using plastic wrap in my kitchen. Too often I'm left with it sticking to everything but the food, sporting a wildly uneven tear, winding up only somewhat sealed to the dish, and getting thrown away after the first use. But you can't deny its utility, so I was thrilled when a friend gave me reusable Bee's Wrap as a replacement. Created by Vermont farmer and mother Sarah Kaeck, Bee's Wrap is a reusable, waterproof, and airtight food wrap made of organic cotton muslin, beeswax, jojoba oil, and tree resin. You simply use the warmth of your hands to seal the wrap around your dish; in a just a few seconds, the wrap has cooled and it holds its seal­­­­­. It's great for cheese, crusty bread, leftovers, sandwiches, or almost any other food you want to keep fresh—just wash it with cold water and dish soap after each use, let it air dry, and store for many future uses!

Bee's Wrap, $18 for a set of 3 (1 each 7"x8", 10"x11", and 13"x14") at Beeswrap.com
