To make your own clingfilm, you need:
– Coton fabric pieces, not too thick, the size you want
– Soya wax chips
– white greaseproof paper.
Put the fabric on a piece of greaseproof paper.
Spread evenly some soya wax chips all over the fabric.
Cover the fabric with another piece of paper and iron on a medium temperature and without steam. The soya wax melts around 40°/50°C. The fabric will rapidly get soaked. If some parts of the fabric are not soaked with wax, add a few more chips.
Once uniformly coated, leave to dry 10 to 15 minutes then, remove the fabric.
To use your fabric coated with wax, place it on the food or container of your choice. Slightly heat up the wrapping with your hands to make it take the wanted form.
To clean your clingfilm after using it, simply use a soapy sponge and cold water (if you use hot water, the wax would probably melt again). Do not wash it in the washing machine. The fabric dries quickly because it is waterproof.
