Hooray for nut milk bags! I just got one in the mail today. Now…what’s the best way to clean these? I’m afraid to put it in the laundry or dishwasher, as I imagine it would tear easily. hrm. So what does everybody else do?
Wow thanks everybody for the quick responses! Amazing. I made my first batch of almond milk this morning, and it turned out deliiiicccccious! I used to just use cheesecloth, but there really is no comparison. If you’re out there, and you’re using cheesecloth for making nut milk, give yourself a treat and pick up a nut milk bag right now. I got mine from rawguru.com (http://www.rawguru.com/store/raw-food/nut-milk-..., or you could get one from the Cafe Gratitude online store (http://www.cafegratitudestore.com/hm07-mb.html). I guess it depends which coast you’re on ;)
I ended up just washing it by hand and it worked out fine (for some reason I thought it would be more difficult…it’s a surprisingly sturdy bag!) Carmentina, that’s a great idea, and there’s next to nothing that a little sunlight can’t improve.
