They are all key ingredients in keeping your wraps pliable, clingy and lasting longer.

Imagine being able to keep your avocados fresh for up to 2 weeks, cucumbers up to 3 weeks and celery up to 5 weeks!! Our UNIQUE professional blend outperforms and outlasts which maximises the potential savings and benefits households can achieve by switching to this sustainable food storage method. Even if you can save $1 a week just on your avocados alone, you can see that Little Bumble wraps are certainly a wise and worthwhile investment! Our xsmall is perfect for avocados and for under $10 you'll save around $50 a year just on avocados alone, but that's just the beginnings of the potential benefits! Try them out for yourself and see first hand why Little Bumble are setting the standard well above and beeyond the rest!
Our perfect pre-blend of ingredients makes your job easy so you just iron the pre-blend into your fabric and enjoy your own hand made wraps!! Experience all the fun and enjoyment of homemade wraps while getting superior quality. You only need fabric (preferably 100% cotton) and a few simple things you already have at home: an iron and baking paper! Our DIY kit also act as a top up kit to keep your wraps going strong for years. So as the coating on the wraps wears down it can be topped up with the DIY kit with the same method but less wax!

Little Bumble offers different sizes of wax depending on the size and quantity of DIY reusable food wraps you are looking to make. The unwaxed fabric squares absorb certain amounts of wax, on average:
Mini (15x15cm) 10gm
Xsmall (20x20cm) 15gm
Small (25x25cm) 20gm
Medium (30x30cm) 35gm
Large (35x35cm) 45gm
Xlarge (40x40cm) 55gm
Jumbo (45x45cm) 70gm
