Perfect for protecting cheese - yes, you can get rid of the plastic packaging as soon as you get the cheese home. Being both insulating and breathable, it works well for covering rising bread dough. It is also suitable for covering fermenting foods such as yogurt, kefir and butter milk. The coating is fluid resistant, so moisture will not leak through the actual fabric. Sauce may add a bit of color to the patina.
It is slightly adhesive and malleable at room temperature and stiffens when cool; holding the form you create. The fluid and air resistant natural coating keeps food fresh and is easy to clean. Simply hand-wash in COLD water with eco-friendly dish soap and enjoy the long life of this breathable, plastic free innovation.

- Very Cool Product Review by Jane
Price Value Quality
I think they work great! It's pretty neat how they mold to a shape just by using your body heat from your hands. I was very surprised that just three of these were able to meet all my plastic wrap needs. Once you stop reaching for plastic wrap on a knee jerk basis you realize that there are many other ways to store your food in the fridge. But these are super helpful for leftover cookie dough, or half of a lemon, or covering a soup pot when you don't want to transfer everything to a container with a lid. I found that the three sizes were versatile enough for me.
They also smell really nice out of the box, a delightful beeswaxy, natural smell. And it is fantastic that they are compostable at the end of their life.
I keep the wax paper-ish wrapper they came in and store them in a drawer, wrapped around an empty paper towel roll, and the wrapped in the original wax paper. They also come with some brief instructions on how to care for them and keep them in good shape.
