Out of StockOur shop no longer sells this product.


The Beeofix DIY block is perfect for making your very own beeswax wraps. A single block is enough for approx. 2,000 cm² of cotton fabric.

A block is for:

  • 1 cloth measuring 15 x 15 cm
  • 1 cloth measuring 25 x 25 cm and
  • 1 cloth measuring 35 x 35 cm


  • 2 towels of size 15 x 15 cm and
  • 2 towels measuring 25 x 25 cm


  • 3 towels of size 15 x 15 cm and
  • 1 cloth measuring 35 x 35 cm


  • 1 cloth measuring 40 x 50 cm

Also required are:

  • Cotton fabric or scraps
  • Baking tray
  • Baking paper
  • Kitchen grater
  • Paintbrush
  • Denatured alcohol or oil to clean the grater

Preparatory work:

  • Cutting the fabric: Cut the selected fabrics (ideally a patterned shirt or old cotton sheets) to the desired size.
  • Pinking shears can be used for this. The edge of the cloth also sticks together very well without pinking shears
  • Preheat the oven: 90° circulating air

Step 1:

  • Place the fabric on the parchment paper on the baking sheet.
  • It is best to grate the block of wax with the kitchen grater directly on the fabric on the baking paper so that none of it is lost.

Step 2:

  • Distribute the grated wax evenly on the cloth.

Step 3:

  • Place the prepared cloth in the preheated oven for 3 - 5 minutes

Step 4:

  • Spread the fully melted wax evenly over the cloth with the brush and brush excess wax away from the cloth and onto the baking paper.

Step 5:

  • Take the warm (no longer hot!) beeswax wrap off the baking sheet and hold it by one or two corners for about 1 minute. Make sure that the cloth is not sticking together while it is still warm.
  • If the beeswax cloth is not evenly soaked when it cools, reheat it in the oven and brush away excess wax or add a little of the wax mixture.
  • Your cloth should have an even appearance after being treated in the oven. After it has cooled down, you can easily see whether the wax mixture has been applied evenly or whether there are areas where it is thicker than elsewhere or whether there are areas that have not been soaked at all.
  • The beeswax wrap is ready to use once it has cooled down.


  • Dip the grater in an old container of hot water and wipe with an old cloth.
  • Caution: Wax remains on this vessel.
  • Methylated spirits do the finishing touches: Put a shot of it on a rag and wipe the grater with it.
