How do I use DOOEK?
Easily seal the cloth by applying the warmth of your hands through pressing, rolling, or folding. Utilize Dooek for sustainable storage of various food items, including vegetables, fruits, cheese, bread, leftovers, or even a cake.
! Cloth is not recommended for use with raw meat or fish.
How do I care for DOOEK?
Simply hand wash it in cool or lukewarm water with a bit of dishwashing liquid. Make sure to let it air dry thoroughly before storing it. Here's a helpful tip: If you wish to rejuvenate the cloth over time, place it on a sheet of baking paper in the oven and melt the beeswax at a temperature of 75-80 degrees Celsius. After a few minutes, once the wax has completely melted, carefully remove the wrap from the ends. Wave it dry (beeswax quickly hardens when exposed to cold air) and set it aside until the wrap has cooled completely. Your food wrap will be just like new again! You can repeat this process several times until the wax is fully gone, indicating it's time for a replacement.
How long does DOOEK last?
Dooek products can have a lifespan of up to a year or more when they are well-maintained and used regularly. You can identify that your beeswax wrap is reaching the end of its life if it has become thinner and struggles to adhere properly. You have the option to reapply wax to the wrap using a refill block, or you can choose to compost it.
What sizes do I need?
We provide a range of sizes and Dooek products. If you're new to beeswax food packaging, we suggest beginning with a mixed 3-pack. This package includes one small wrap measuring 20x20 cm, one medium wrap measuring 25x25 cm, and one large wrap measuring 30x30 cm. By trying out these different sizes, you can determine which one best suits your household's needs.
What is wax bloom?
If you've noticed that your wrapper has developed a white, somewhat strange residue over the print, you might be concerned that it's gone bad or even starting to mold. However, there's no need to worry or throw it away. Here's why: Pure beeswax never spoils. The white deposit you see is referred to as "wax bloom," and it's a natural part of the oxidation process. It can occur when beeswax is exposed to cold temperatures or stored in a cold environment or even when it's not used for a while. Wax bloom is completely harmless, and you can continue using your wrap as usual without any concerns. If you still prefer to remove it, here are some options:
- Gently rub it away with a soft towel, wet or dry, or even with your hand.
- You can also use a hairdryer. Don't set the heat too high or the wax may start to melt.
- Refresh the cloth in the oven, especially if you have used it for a while. More information can be found under 'How do I care for Dooek'.
