Crafty? Good for You

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.

As used by Top Chefs throughout the world.

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.

Sold by the case only. No packs, partial cases, single bolts, or whatever else you can think of. 

This item cannot be returned. Please request a sample if you aren't 100% positive this is the right product for your needs.

Free manufacturer's certification documents! Contact us if you need this with your order. We'll setup your account so you'll get it every time you order without even needing to ask. Oh, did I mention this service is free?

What Do The Grades Mean?

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.
