I wanted to make some cottage cheese then I read it in the recipe it needs cheese cloth. What is cheesecloth? Where can I buy it from?

Cheesecloth is a woven cotton. If you have none, you can use a regular kitchen strainer to make the cottage cheese. You will just have to push the ingredients through the strainer. No big deal.

cheesecloth is a very loosely woven cotton cloth uses to strain the whey from the curd when making cheese it looks kind of like the stuff you get in first aid boxes for cuts, gauze bandages

You can buy it at a arts and craft store. That's where I get it.
