They should last a year or more as long as they are treated with love, we have some that are almost 2 years old and going strong.

No, please wash the wraps by hand with cool water and if you feel neccesary a bit of mild dish soap. The wraps will last longer the less you use heat and soap on them.

Not unless you want to enjoy a nice bowl of wax filled leftovers! Please do not heat your wraps in the microwave or use to cover food, it will melt.

If you feel that your wrap has served you well, you can cut it into strips and put it in your compost.

No the flavour will not transfer over from the wrap to your food, if you are worreid the wrap will start to taste like the food you are wrapping it is not an issue EXCEPT with onions, we have a specific "onion wrap" at home just for that purpose.
