Naturally inspired trends from our honeycomb friends.
Trends for 2021 will feature naturally inspired products. Part of that means bees will be all the buzz this year.
Honeycomb shaped tiles look great on a kitchen backsplash.
Keep baking pans and sheets looking good as new by buffing beeswax onto the surfaces. Cook with the pans as normal. Over time, your pans will develop a permanent layer of wax, meaning you don’t have to oil or grease them every time you use them.
For stuck zippers, rub a small piece of beeswax along the zipper’s teeth to create an easy slide.
You can rub a bit of beeswax onto chapped winter lips. Some versions provide a natural SPF.
Waterproof shoes with beeswax. Simply clean to remove dirt and then rub beeswax directly on shoes with a cloth and use a blow-dryer to melt the wax before rubbing away any excess wax with a towel.
You can find natural and local (Kinnickinnic Bees) beeswax bars at Smith + Trade Mercantile in Stillwater, Minn.
