What to do when food goes moldy in Peelo? Can the packaging still be saved?
Even if something has gone moldy in Peelo, nothing may be lost and the packaging can still be saved. However, it depends on the stage of the mold.
If you caught it in time, it is possible to save Peelo by washing it properly - gently but thoroughly scrubbing with a sponge and soapy water. In the case of a wax bag, it must be turned inside out. Then leave the Peelo to dry freely.
If, even after it has dried, it seems that the mold has not been completely cleaned, just to be sure, put Peelo in the oven heated to 90 degrees on baking paper (in the case of a bag, we recommend putting one baking paper between the two layers of the bag to prevent them from sticking together ) and leave Peelo there for 2-3 minutes. The wax layer is thus restored and the high temperature should also destroy the remaining mold particles.
However, if the mold is in an advanced stage and you still feel it after these attempts, we recommend cutting up the Peelo and composting it, or using it as kindling for the fire, as we do not recommend its continued use.
What to do with Peelo packaging when it has expired?
When the Peelo is really at the end of its life cycle, you can cut it into small pieces and throw it in the compost. Or cut it into longer strips, twist them and you can use them as kindling for the fireplace in the fireplace or on the grill.
