How to use a vegan wax wrap – 14 different ways!
1. Cover a jar.
You know how jar lids get rusty over time? Or you lose one? A small sized vegan wax wrap makes a PERFECT replacement for that lid. Just use a little pressure to seal it onto your jar – voila!
2. Cover a plate of food.
Sometimes your kids can’t quite finish their dinner but you don’t want to toss it out. Just cover the plate with a vegan wax wrap! And other times you want to send a loved one a dinner plate so they can taste your masterpiece. A vegan wax wrap will keep everything in place.
3. Cover a bowl.
One of my favorite ways to clean up quickly after dinner is to put a vegan wax wrap on top of the bowls of whatever we were eating and put them straight into the fridge. This keeps the food fresh and speeds up the clean-up. No need to transfer leftovers into a special container. So easy.
4. Cover half a fruit or veggie.
If we only use half an onion with a meal, I love wrapping it up in a vegan wax wrap and tossing it back into the fridge to stay fresh and keep those onion odors contained! A small vegan wax wrap works great for half an avocado, half an apple, some carrot sticks, or even covering the end of a cucumber or squash.
5. Wrap fresh herbs or greens.
A vegan wax wrap helps keep fresh basil, cilantro, and other herbs fresh. It’s also great for lettuce and sturdy greens. You can wrap them up gently – no need to squish down too hard. The water barrier of the wax wrap will help keep them fresh.
6. Open a stubborn jar.
I didn’t even know about this until just recently when my friend told me she uses my wraps to open tough jar lids! Just wrap a vegan wax wrap on top of the jar and twist! It comes off so much easier!
7. Wrap flowers.
Picture what a sweet gift this would be for a loved one. Homegrown flowers in a cute, reusable vegan wax wrap. They help them stay fresh too! Two gifts in one :).
8. Cover a casserole dish.
I’ve got a size in my shop that’s just perfect for your average 9 x 13 casserole dish. It works great for other sizes too. When we make vegan enchiladas, we use a large wrap to cover the leftovers. A vegan wax wrap also works great if you’re bringing over a dish in a casserole pan. Just remember to remove it before you reheat your leftovers!
9. Wrap a sandwich.
Classic wax wrap role. Just wrap up your lunch and pop it in your lunch bag or backpack or purse. Bonus – when you’re done, you don’t have a large container to carry around. It folds up neatly.
10. Carry your granola or nuts.
My mom loves using her wax wrap this way. She keeps a little stash in her purse of nuts and raisins. The wax wrap keeps it fresh.
11. Use it as a placemat.
If you’re picnicking on the go, it’s a great little placemat to keep a protected or germ-free spot for your stuff. Also works great at home for your kiddos. It even keeps the plate from moving around too much!
12. Preserve vegan cheese.
If you buy vegan cheese at the store, you’ve probably noticed that the packaging doesn’t really stand up to multiple uses. A vegan wax wrap will keep that cheese fresh though!
13. Use it under your cutting board.
If you don’t want your cutting board to move around while you work, a large vegan wax wrap will help it stay put.
14. Preserve your bread.
If you make your own bread or get it in paper bags, a wax wrap will help it stay super fresh. It works for freezing the bread or keeping it in the cupboard.
