What is Cheesecloth

Cheesecloth is light weight and made of 100 % cotton. Its traditionally used to strain foods and liquids. Nowadays you can use cheesecloth for other purposes like this Halloween craft. There are many different grades of cheese cloth

The lower the grade the bigger gaps. As the number goes higher the cloth becomes tighter and smaller gaps. I used a low grade so I wanted to give a see though ghost like appearance.
