"Title" Common Things With Uncommon Uses


1. Food tents. Protect your food from dirt and insects at outdoor parties— wrap a piece of cheesecloth around an old wire umbrella form and place over serving plates.

 

 

2. Paint strainer. Remove the clots from an old can of paint by straining it through cheesecloth.
 

3. Pressing cloth. When ironing delicate fabrics, press over a damp piece of cheesecloth— it leaves no lint and won’t overwet your clothes.
 

4. Minnow catcher. Cheesecloth makes a good bait net.
 

5. Dry cleaner. To remove oil and dirt from your hair, cover your brush with cheesecloth.
 

6. Digital drape. If the light from your digital clock keeps you awake at night, cover it with a piece of cheesecloth— you’ll still be able to see the numbers, but they won’t be so bright.
 

7. Landscape cloth. To protect newly sown grass seed from wind and birds, cover with a layer of coarse-mesh cheesecloth weighted with rocks.
 

8. Shade. Drape over stakes to partly shade vegetable transplants.

 

 
9. Butterfly net.
Glue or staple cheesecloth to a hoop formed from a wire coat hanger.

10. Tea strainer. Strain freshly brewed tea into a cup or mug through a piece of cheesecloth.

11. Jelly strainer. When making berry jelly, pour the cooked fruit through three layers of cheesecloth to strain out seeds and skins.
 

12. Fat remover. To skim fat from soups or stews, wrap ice in cheese cloth and draw across the surface.
 

13. Vacuum attachment. Instead of removing the contents of a drawer to dust it, cover the nozzle of your vacuum with cheesecloth so that small objects aren’t sucked into it.
