I have always used a damp towel to cover my bowl too. Next time I try a recipe that calls for Saran wrap I am going to try a beeswax wrap with a string or rubber band to secure it. I use a couple of recipes with fairly sticky dough and sometimes it sticks to the towel which can then be a chore to clean. Iím thinking maybe the beeswax wrap might be easier to wash off. Has anyone tried that yet?

I have a huge bowl with a domed lid that I use for rising bread in. I spray the bowl and lid lightly with cooking oil to prevent them from sticking. I have also used a beeswax wrap that my Windy Pines cousin Michele made me years ago. It did work just fine but I've used it so often that the coating has worn off. Have fun experimenting what works best for you. Kudos for wanting to be as plastic free as possible!
