Sorry, we aren’t crafty. We can’t answer questions about dyeing, crafting, or other uses of cheesecloth so please — don’t ask. It just makes us feel stupid (I know, self-esteem issues, my therapist is making a fortune). You figure out the crafty stuff and we’ll stick to what we are good at...offering the best products at a great price with free shipping.
A cheese crafter's favorite!
Our white cheesecloth has been given all sorts of very scientific tests you may not understand, but the bottom line is this cheesecloth is Medical Grade and Certified by some very clever people (they're almost as smart as us for stocking them).
This white cheesecloth doesn't contain seed particles or oils thanks to a quick dip in lye (yes the same lye used in homemade soaps). Our Cheesecloth can be trusted, where some other 'scally-rags' can't, to polish your car, filter wine, and prepare food.
Just don't do them all with the same piece of cheesecloth. That's important.
This item cannot be returned. Because it is used in the food industry, we must assure all product shipped to customers is brand new, never been shipped.

Grades mean being compared to others in school even though your personality is different and you just don't fit in and your teachers want you to do better and your parents just don't understand!
Whoops, sorry, I might have some more therapy needed.
In cheesecloth, the grading has to do with the porousness or weave of the cloth. The smaller the grade number the more porous or gauze-like the cheesecloth will be. The larger the grade number, the less porous and more fabric-like. Watch the boring video to see what I'm talking about.
There is no substitute for top quality Cheesecloth fabric. It is used in the Food Service industry for basting, straining and filtering during food preparation processes. White Cheesecloth has been processed to remove the impurities of natural cotton fibers such as seed particles and oils. Lye is used to clean and whiten our cheesecloth.
Cheesecloth is also very popular with decorators. Used for wedding decorations, Halloween ghosts, curtains, crafts and many other uses our customers surprise us with. Great for polishing, Cheesecloth is popular in the auto, aircraft and aerospace industries for making things shiny.
