About

Hey! Wondering what made me start this small Etsy business?

Let me tell you the whole story.

Winters in Lithuania are harsh, and so was February of 2015, when I spent most of my free time in my warm kitchen, ruining all the pots and stove with sticky beeswax and hard-to-wash oils. My clothes had beeswax stains, and the beeswax smell was everywhere. I was determined.

For quite some time I had been using those simple beeswax wraps I made myself following many DIY videos on Youtube.

And even though they kind of did the job, I was disatisfied with the quality - beeswax peeled off the third day of using, also, it didn't stick properly when put on a bowl. Also, I was a little bit concerned about the cloths I was using - are they safe? I mean, you will be wrapping your FOOD into this wrap, so what about the inks and dyes of the cloth? Do they have to be "food friendly"? Does this category of dyes exist at all?

So, I asked myself - what should people do when they don't like something?

They improve it!

It took me half a year, I used 25 kinds of cotton fabrics, 3 types of beeswax and many, many, many gums, resins and oils too make ±600 prototypes until I was finally happy with the result. I got really passionate about it. I consulted textile experts to select the best fabric, I read all I could get my hands on about beeswax and its types, textile industry, certifications, eco dyes, inks and dyeing processes, you name it. It was a true obsession.

Everywhere I went, I used to carry a little prototype of my wrap, in case people would like to try it out and give me feedback. I listened carefully to their opinon and critique they gave me, and kept improving.

And finally, after many failed attempts, I created a durable, washable, long lasting, fully biodegradable and nice-to-touch beeswax wrap. It keeps bakery, cheese and all kinds of veggies fresh for longer. For those who care about the environment it allows to live a life using less plastic, and for those ladies and gentlemen who want their fridges look nice and tidy - Cerawrap works like a magic wand!

Now, three years later, I own a small manufacture in Kaunas, where I produce my beeswax wraps. I am proud that my company meets high and demanding hygiene and quality requirements of the EU and national institutions.

I started locally and for two years I was selling only to local retailers, participated in faires or eco markets. I tested the product, improved the formula, and now I feel I would love to reach out to bigger audiences. So, I opened an Etsy shop, where you can check out my newest wraps.

For Cerawrap, I use only clean, food-safe materials: the cotton fabric is GOTS certified. Dyes and inks I use for prints are eco-friendly. Beeswax, oils and resins are organic, pure and 100% natural.

Thanks for coming over to my shop, and if you have any questions - feel free to message me! I answer to all the messages I receive.

Best wishes,

How do I clean my beeswax wrap?

#1 Use damp cotton cloth for regular cleaning

Even though Cerawraps are designed in a way you could wash them over running water, honestly, you do not need to do that every time you use it.

If you wrap bread or cookies, there would be only breadcrumbs or some traces of flour left on your wrap. To clean those, simply brush the wrap with a damp kitchen cloth.

#2 If you have to wash it, use lukewarm water

Lukewarm or cold water will do the job without melting the waxwrap down. After you wash it, hang it to dry. And it is ready to be used again!

Can I use regular dish soap for cleaning the wrap?

Yes, but make sure you use plenty of water when rinsing.

Are there products that you would not recommend wrapping in Cerawrap beeswax wraps?

For the hygiene reasons, I wouldn't wrap raw meat and raw fish. It is simply because all the surfaces that had direct contact with raw meat and fish have to be washed under steaming hot water.

Acidic products like lime halves could eat the wrap over time. So it is better to put those acidic fruits in a bowl and then cover it with the wrap. This way your wrap will last longer!

Can I use Cerawrap wraps in the fridge?

Yes.

Can I use your wraps in the freezer?

Yes, yet after taking it out of the freezer, I would give the wrap few minutes to adjust to the room temperature. So when I unwrap it, it unwraps nicely and smootly.

This would preserve the elasticity of the wrap so you can enjoy it for longer.

Can I use your wraps in the microwave?

No. It will melt them down.
