Cheesecloth Substitute For Straining

Kitchen Hacks: The Coffee-Filter Cheesecloth

Cheesecloth can be a useful item to have in the kitchen, yet it's just obscure enough to be hard to track down at times. One thing that's not hard to locate, though, is a paper coffee filter, which just so happens to make a handy cheesecloth replacement.

Coffee filters perform the same functions as cheesecloth — separating liquids from solids — and are sturdy enough to withstand heavy, wet, and hot food. These features make them the perfect solution when you're looking to strain Greek yogurt or fresh cheeses. Have you ever tried this hack?

I always use coffee filters for mulling spices in cider. Just tie it up with a little string!
