Muslin in place of cheesecloth??
 
Hi,

It seems cheesecloth is kinda pricey. Has anyone used muslin cloth as a reusable substitute? Does it work ok? Any drawbacks?

Why Muslin is the Better Cheesecloth - Viet World Kitchen

Thanks,

I don't see why you couldn't. Old fashioned jelly bags are made of muslin. Folks also use clean tea and flour sack towels for straining stuff. As long as they're clean, why not?

Interesting website, BTW. Thanks!

I use men's handkerchiefs.

If you use muslin you should wash it first. Many times muslin and other fabrics have a sizing in them.

I generally use flour-sack towels instead of cheesecloth.

I use muslin and I wash it before and after use. Works fine.
