If you are currently looking for vegetable oilcloth then you've come to the right place! The vegan oilcloths are the ideal alternative to beeswax wipes if you live vegan and want to avoid animal products.
What are oilcloths anyway? As already mentioned, there are vegetable wax cloths and bee wax cloths. Both are equally suitable for keeping food fresh. To do this, you can hold the vegan oilcloths in your hand briefly so that they become flexible and malleable. Then place them on the cut surfaces of fruit, vegetables or bread and store the food in the refrigerator if necessary.
You can also simply cover bowls or deep plates filled with leftover food with the cloths to keep the food fresh. It is important that you briefly hold the ends, for example on the cut surface of an orange, so that the wax can adhere. The vegan wax cloths are also suitable for storing food in the freezer.
How to clean oilcloth
Cleaning the vegetable oilcloths is very easy. You wipe with a sponge, some cold water and a little gentle detergent over the cloths until all food residues are removed, rinse again with clean water and then hang up the cloths to air dry.
How to store oilcloth
It is best to keep the vegetable oilcloths dry and protected from heat and direct sunlight. You can simply store them in a free kitchen drawer. If you have a small clothes rack on the window sill, it is also ideal to hang the vegan oilcloths on it. If there is a heater under the window sill, you should pay attention to the heat.
Why vegan oilcloth?
Now that you already know well, the question arises why to buy vegan oilcloths. Compared to plastic, the advantage is of course that the vegetable oilcloths are reusable and biodegradable. If you buy oilcloths instead of cling film, you effectively avoid the unnecessary production of plastic and protect the environment. The oilcloths are also packaged plastic-free, to really save plastic at every turn.
The vegan oilcloths are made of organic cotton and other renewable raw materials. This ensures a resource-saving production, which also sustainably protects our planet.
In addition, it is a vegetable alternative to beeswax wipes. In the article "Why don't vegans eat honey" you can learn a lot about honey production. The information from this article is of course also relevant for the production of wax and therefore it is worth buying vegetable wax cloths. Since the vegetable wax cloths do not contain any animal ingredients, they are first class for vegans.
