How do I care for my purchase?

Since you are now be devoting a major portion of your life to doing laundry, here are some suggestions to make it easier:

 

Before throwing items in the washer, always read the care label.

 

Strap accessories:

Turn straps inside out to keep them from pilling.   Secure all snaps and close velcro attachments.  Wash on a cool wash up to 40 degrees.  Fabrics have been prewashed to prevent shrinkage, however with all farbics further shrinkage can occur.  Dry flat and iron for best results

 

Fabric Washable Mats:

Our Mats benefit from being left open and the bags turned inside out with the colouring fabric on the outside.  Wash on a cool wash up to 40 degrees.  Fabrics have been prewashed to prevent shrinkage, however with all fabrics further shrinkage can occur.  Tumble drying Colouring Mats and bags is not recommended.  Dry flat and iron for best results.

 

First Aid pouches:

First aid pouches are made from laminated cotton, therefore it is recommended that they are hand washed only.  DO NOT iron laminated fabric.

 

Eco-Friendly snack pouches:

Open zips and pull our lining.  Wash on a cool wash up to 40 degrees.  Fabrics have been prewashed to prevent shrinkage, however with all fabrics further shrinkage can occur.  Snack pouches can also be hand washed.  Dry flat and do not iron, as the waterproof fabric may melt.

 

Blankets (including Memory Blankets):

When it’s time to wash your blanket pop it on a cool wash, low spin.  Allow to dry flat to maintain shape.  Warm iron ONLY on the cotton side.  Do not iron the minky (soft) side as this will damage the dimples.

 

A note on tumble drying:  Always dry on a low heat setting. High heat increases shrinkage in natural fibers. 

 

Do the pens really wash out?

 

Yes!  The pens that come with the mats and bags are 100% washable.  

 

 

Our pens ran out for the Colouring Mats what pens can I buy to replace?

 

We sell replacement pen sets.  Please contact us directly to order more.

All our mats and bags are supplied with washable pens specifically made for children.  The brand of pens used vary from time to time however, through extensive testing I find the most appropriate washable pens for this fabic are Crayola, Stablio and Bic.  Most hobby store or online shops sell washable pens.

Can I use permanent fabric pens?

 

Permanent fabric pens are a great way to treasure your child's artwork.  Our Colouring Mats and Bags can be coloured in with permanent fabric pens, iron and the colours will set.  Ideal for older children who want to show off their art work for longer.  Please note you will not be able to wash out permanent fabric pens if you decide to use them.  If you would prefer permanent pens instead of washable I can supply these for you at no extra cost.  Once the colouring mat or bag has been coloured in, iron it to seal the colours.

BEESWAX WRAPS -FAQ's

CARE:

 

Wraps are washable and can be cleaned in the kitchen sink with dish detergent and warm water (avoid hot water).  They should not be machine washed since this will destroy the beeswax.  Beeswax wraps are not recommended for raw meats or liquids.

 

Wraps will last up to a year with recommended care and can be composted after use.  After a year creased and otherwise worn looking wraps can be re-waxed.

My wrap doesn't seem to stick anymore.  What can I do?

After a few months you may notice your wrap does not stick or fuse as it used to.  It is possible to redistribute the wax on your wax and also sterilise the wrap.  To do this, pre heat the oven to 100 C and lay the wrap on some baking paper. Pop the wrap into the oven for maximum 5 mins.  When you take the wrap out immediately lift it off the baking paper and 'swish' it in the air to dry.  The wax dries very quickly so be quick!  Your wrap will now feel renewed and ready to use.

What size wraps do you offer?

Beeswax wraps are available in 5 sizes:

MINI 15 x 15 cm

SMALL 20 x 20 cm

MEDIUM 25 x 25 cm

LARGE 33 x 33 cm

Ex-LARGE 40x40 cm

I want to make my own wraps, how do I do it?

At Spiritedchild we offer a pre-mixed blended block for you to use on your own fabric.  Perhaps you have some cotton fabric laying around that would make great beeswax wraps.  When you purchase our kits you will be given full instructions on how to make your wraps.  How much wax you need to purchase will depend on how many wraps you'd like to make.  Below is a guide to sizes and wax blend needed.  Please note this is only a guide as fabric weights vary and thicker fabrics will naturally need more wax.

50g will do 1 large wrap (33x33cm approx.) and a mini OR up to 4 medium wraps! Perfect for those wanting to hand make their own lunch wrap or make a starter collection.  This option is also good for touching up existing wraps.

100g will do 1 Extra Large wrap (40x40cm approx.) and a medium OR up to 8 medium wraps! Its great value and perfect for those wanting to hand make their own stash of wraps. 

200g Have a crafty afternoon with friends and make up to 16-20 wraps!! This will do 3 Extra Large wraps (40x40cm approx.) OR a large number of smaller sizes. It's perfect for making for your own big stash or make some gifts. 

300g The big one!  Have a beeswax wrap making party!  A great evening with friends to share the blended wax and making experience.  Our largest selection will do several large wraps and 20 medium wraps and with probably some wax left over.
