How long do they last?
On average, each sheet should get about 120 - 150 uses, but it ultimately depends on how often and how intensively and for what purpose you use them. Some people will get a year out of them - especially when used as bowl toppers - while others who beat them up on a daily basis may get closer to 4-6 months.
How do they work?
Simply warm them in your hands and wrap them around produce, bowls, sandwiches, nuts, snacks, cheese and cooked / smoked meats - virtually any perishable. The wraps stick to themselves and provide a clean and protective seal. They cool and cure almost instantly.
Reusable? I don't get it, won't they get dirty?
Fear not friend. After use, simply rinse in cold water - hot water will reduce the wax coating - and wash with an eco-friendly soap (avoid alcohol based soaps), just like you would a plate or bowl. Once clean you can either hang to dry or use a towel and re-use immediately. They may - with certain foods like pomegranate - develop a darker patina, but as long as you keep working them they'll keep delivering freshness.
What kind of dye is used? Is the cotton organic?
Fair question! All of our dyes are non toxic and free of heavy metals, AZOs and formaldehyde found in typical textile dyes. We use a Certified Organic cotton fabric. Both the dyes and the fabric utilize very little water to be processed, of which a great portion is recycled. They are certified under the Global Organic Textile Standard - recognized as the world's leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres - which means they are also in compliance with social criteria.

Will they work in the freezer?
30 days or less, yes! But they're not recommended for uncooked meat.
What shouldn't they be used for?
Avoid uncooked meats, long term freezer use (more than a month) and microwaves (unless you want to add a little beeswax soup to your bowl of zoodles).
