Take ether Velesco silicone mat or parchment paper.  When put organic material like cotton or linen on it and put thin layer of mixture above on it.  Next you need to add another layer of same material and cover it with another silicone mat or parchment paper.  Now use hot iron on low setting to melt mixture sandwitched between layers of materials.  Easy, right?!  Once mixture is completely melted and soaked into the material, separate 2 layers of material and let them cool and dry.

In order to wash your new beewax wraps simply use cold soapy water.   Do not wash them with warm water as it will melt and wash off the wax.  If beewax wrap start loosing its texture or tackiness, simply reapply a bit of beewax/rosin/jojoba oil mixture to it and it will be as new.
