We are all familiar with this: sometimes food remains stick to the dishes and only laborious scrubbing with a brush helps. If we then use a brush with bristles that are too soft, cleaning can take much longer.  Unfortunately, dishwashing brushes and their bristles are often made of plastic - and are simply disposed of in the household waste. If you consider that washing-up brushes should be changed every few weeks, you can calculate how much unnecessary plastic waste is produced in every household, every year, by plastic washing-up brushes alone. We don't even want to talk about the germ load in plastic bristles. 

Our sustainable beeskin dish brushes are made entirely of bamboo with Tampico bristles. Since neither metal nor plastic has been used, the beeskin dishwashing brushes can even be disposed of in the compost. 

The heads of the beeskin dishwashing brush are simply screwed onto the handle and can thus be replaced quite conveniently. You can get a set of replacement heads separately. 

The bristles of the beeskin brushes are made of tampico, the fibres of leaves of an agave species. They do not kink, are strong and even resistant to acids. Of course, the tampico bristles are fully compostable.

    Are there foods I can't use beeskin for?

    For hygienic reasons you should not store raw fish and raw meat in beeskin. Place those into an extra bowl and cover the bowl instead. Pineapple has an enzyme which causes the coating to dissolve. Prolonged contact with very oily food may damage the wax and resin coating.

    How do I clean beeskin?

    Run your beeskin beeswax wrap under cold water only, and run your fingers over your wrap to remove any excess, as if rinsing a plate. Don’t wash or rub your wrap vigorously with a rough sponge or brush. You may use the soft side of a sponge, gently, and we recommend you use an eco-friendly dish soap with no “alcohol“ within the first 4 ingredients. Alcohol will dissolve the beeswax and tree resin. After having cleaned your beeskin, pat it dry with a kitchen towel or let it air-dry. Don’t set your beeskin beeswax on a radiator since your wrap is not particularly fond of heat.

    Can I use beeskin to freeze food?

    Your beeskin beeswax can definitely be put in the fridge and of course in the freezer compartment. Your food will be protected but can still breathe. We recommend you check on your food after 4 weeks to make sure it does not dry out. We like to freeze leftover pizza or half a cake in beeskin. Even bread slices are great to be frozen. Take them out and pace them directly into the toaster or oven.

    What happens after its lifetime?

    After its lifetime beeskin can be discarded on the compost. It will dissolve completely. Alternatively you can use beeskin as a natural and healthy fire starter for fireplace or barbecue.
