DIY Plastic-Free Sandwich Wrap

This eco-friendly sandwich wrap is reusable and made with 100% cotton cloth and all natural beeswax.
The beeswax makes it waterproof with the texture of wax paper, and so it is easy to wipe clean and reuse, but it is pliable and can be folded around a sandwich or other food items. Good for cheese, fruits veggies, sandwiches and more.
