Review Two - Wax Wrappings to Brighten Up Your Day!

OK, so I'm hooked. These great colourful wraps are perfect for when you have a bowl of something that needs covering. Dinner left overs? Covered. Tin of pet food? Covered. 

The set I bought from Amazon online has different sizes. The smaller ones are great for opened packets of cheese or tops of tin cans. The medium and larger ones are good for covering your bowls or casserole dish with leftovers.

Wax Wraps Various Designs for Covering Bowls

To start with they feel pretty sticky & you do have to scrunch them up to A. warm them up and B. to re-distribute the wax. Once you've done this you can lay it flat over the top of the can or bowl & fold down the edge to seal. 

It can go in the fridge fine although they don't recommend microwaving. I have found some alternatives for those type of jobs which I'll cover later (pardon the pun!)
My Verdict? 
They are cheery and stops me reaching for cling film every time I need to cover any left overs or opened tins. They can be rinsed too in cold water to use again and again whenever you need to. I have since seen small waxers (refresher blocks) you can use, to add a layer of wax when it needs topping up. 

The downside I found is the slightly sticky hands you feel when you first start using it, but hands can be washed no problem. I have stayed away from wrapping sandwiches for this reason (again I have alternatives for that) and also you wouldn't want to use them for raw meat.
I love them ❤ & they will definitely be a keeper!
