Re: Cheesecloth in CH??

In Standard German it is called Käseleinen. Other possible words to look for are Filterleinen, Filtertuch, Siebleinen or Siebtuch. In Swiss German it's Chääsliine.

Make sure you buy the German version, though. The Swiss version is full of holes.

Re: Cheesecloth in CH??

I just had a revelation the other day about this very thing,,, if you don't find "cheese-cloth" as you know it, go to a second hand shop and buy some pre-loved net curtains.
Give them a boil up and there you have it!!! They are perfect, better even than cheese-cloth I think.... good luck anyway.

Re: Cheesecloth in CH??

Muslin/chesse cloth is nothing but a cotton cloth which is unbleached so that it can strain the chesse from the milk...

I use to make cottage cheese at home using a cotton cloth which works out perfect....

You can even use a washed cotton hanky or a kitchen towel which serves the purpose.

Re: Cheesecloth in CH??

Do those blue kitchen cloths have any kind of chemical in them for cleaning? Did you wash them somehow before using them to strain things and if so, how did you wash them?
I've also heard of people using kitchen paper towel and coffee filters. Does anyone have any experience with using these? They seem like a bit of a pain to use hence the reason for me asking about the blue cloths.
I should just buy cheese since we live in the land of cheese but I really want to learn to make it myself.
Thanks in advance for any replies

Re: Cheesecloth in CH??

Any of the bigger migros and coop will have muslin cloths in the baby section. If I recall correctly, they are called Mullwindeln.

Re: Cheese cloth/muslin cloth

I know the original post is old, but I wanted to say I found cheesecloth at Coopcity in Oerlikon. It was in the "Einmachen" section of the kitchenware. It is called "Passiertuch," 75 x 75cm and it was 7.50 CHF. The description was, "zum Filtern von Säften und Abtropfen von Fruchtmassen und Rohkäse. Extra groß, zuscheidbar und reissfest."

Re: Cheese cloth/muslin cloth

cheese-cloth-muslin-cloth-img_20150223_194418.jpg I too went in search of cheesecloth and found some today at the Manor in Geneva! I had to ask for it, and they were quite confused when I tried to explain that it was a "mousselin" for "fromage." Finallly he said, "pour le confiture?" and the light bulb turned on for them! It was hidden in the bottom shelf (which was only about 4 cm tall!) in the dessert area of the kitchen section, and cost 9.90 CHF. Bon courage!

Re: Cheese cloth/muslin cloth

I just found that these are also sold for making nut milk, officially known as Nussmilchbeutel or Nut milk bag (not to be confused with a nut sack, that's an entirely different kind of milk)

http://www.amazon.de/Nussmilchbeutel.../dp/B00NFT0VYS

something else to search for if you are looking.
