Frank Wrap Beeswax Blend Bar - New Product

You accidently placed your Frank Wrap under hot water and it needs refreshing? Is your Frank Wrap showing signs of wear? Are you thinking of disposing your old Frank Wrap or creating a new one? Yes, Frank Wrap hears you. 

Beeswax Blend Bar by Frank Wrap is here to help you!

Bring your Frank Wrap back to life with our signature Beeswax Blend Bar made with the same ingredients we use for all our wraps: beeswax, pine resin, jojoba oil & love.

You need:

  • Beeswax Blend Bar by Frank Wrap
  • An old towel
  • Clean paint brush (3 cm to 5 cm)
  • Clean glass jar (wide enough to allow the brush inside it)
  • Saucepan
  • Iron
  • 2 sheets of parchment white paper (minimum 5cm larger than the fabric)
  • Wooden stick

 Technique:

  1. Cut clean thin fabric into desired shapes and sizes.
  2. Place the Beeswax Blend Bar from Frank Wrap in the glass jar and set in the saucepan.
  3. Put water in the saucepan. Around two or three centimeters of water is enough.
  4. Let the water boil slowly and allow the bar to melt, about 15 to 20 minutes. You can use a wooden stick to stir it up.
  5. In the meantime, protect your work surface with an old towel.
  6. Place one sheet of white parchment paper and spread the piece of fabric flat.  
  7. Remove the saucepan with the glass jar inside from heat source and place it near your work surface. Keep the glass jar inside the saucepan in order to keep it warm.
  8. Brush mixture lightly onto fabric. It might solidify, which is fine, as you'll be able to redistribute later. It is easy to oversaturate, so remember that it is easier to add more than take the excess away.
  9. Place the second sheet of parchment paper on the coated fabric (parchment paper + coated fabric + parchment paper).
  10. Gently press the hot iron (steam off) on the parchment layers, keep iron moving. Use the iron to spread the melted wax over the repair area or full wrap.
  11. Once the wrap looks all wet and covered gently lift top parchment paper (place sheet to one side, wet side up). Be as fast as possible. 
  12. Pick up the wrap by two corners and wave it for 30 seconds until dry. It is hot but it will not burn your fingers. You can use the wooden stick on the corners to remove the fabric from the paper.  
  13. Your wrap is ready and your are reducing your consumption of plastic. 

Tips:

  • Silicone kitchen brush does not work. Use a regular paint brush. 
  • Do not melt more than you need. Avoid waste. 
  • Be careful not to spread over the edge of the parchment paper onto the iron!
  • Store leftover Beeswax Blend Bar in the original packaging.
  • Remove any waxy residue from your fingers with warm water and soap. Dry your hands and apply a drop of baby oil or olive oil in case it persists.
  • Keep the glass jar and brush for next time.
  • Give preference to certified organic GOTS and OEKO TEX cotton fabric when creating your own wraps.
