To clean your hands, simply use some dish soap and water.
Q: Why are my Beeswax Wraps flaking?
A: This can happen as our Beeswax Wraps are 100% Handmade, sometimes the wraps need a little longer to 'cure', or there may be too much Beeswax applied which is unable to absorb into the fabric, most customers understand and accept the nature of these Beeswax Wraps properties. If however, you would prefer to replace your Beeswax Wrap, please email us with a photo of your wrap attached to email@example.com and we will do our best to assist you. Please also note, flaking of the Beeswax can also happen overtime, as the beeswax will start to breakdown with use. and this is also completely normal.
