Why do I need cheesecloth?

What is cheesecloth anyways? It is a loose, woven gauze -like 100% cotton cloth used primarily in cheese making and cooking. Because it is so soft and absorbent, it has many uses outside the kitchen.

These are just a few suggestions:
1) Dampen cheesecloth to easily remove dust and lint cleanly.

2) Try using it instead of a sponge to apply color. Because it is so soft, it makes a great tool to apply colors and blend them gently with no scratches.

3) Use a small square instead of a mop brush to soften or blend. Sometimes we need a little more control than a mop will offer.

4) Color washing is quick and easy with cheesecloth.

5) Take a piece of cheesecloth and lay it over the surface. Apply a layer of paint and carefully lift to remove. It will leave a wonderful texture imprint.

6) Another variation would be to paint first, then press the cheesecloth into the paint for texture.

I keep finding new ways to use this old product. I am sure you will be able to find even more wonderful ways to re-invent the amazing cheesecloth!

    Keep any repair or replacement costs in mind when you weigh your interest in any item.
    When utilized in institutions and music universities, this can
    be the ideal bench mainly because it can face up to every day use, and wear;
    along with longer lasting than vinyl. Adjustable benches are available in a large
    selection of styles and colors including models that have genuine leather

    If a bench is desired to closely resemble the factory supplied bench, one should opt for the duet bench since its style is most
    like the original. The adjustable piano bench is suitable for all ages and preferred by many teaching institutes and training centers.
