Thanks! I will defo try that basic foot scrub cos I have all of that on hand. Im not that into it to get new gadgets at this stage, everything is very small scale for me hehe.
What do you use to strain the plant material out? I always read about "cheesecloth" in online recipes but I have no idea what that is or where to get it! Coffee filters are prohibitively expensive here.
Ah a craft store! I had been looking in supermarkets, there is no walmart here. Next time I go to town I will look in the craft store thanks. Postal delivery is hit and miss, not much will post to my location or po box and what does is expensive.
Cheese cloth is a very loosely woven fabric, you can see space between the fibers. I use 2 or 3 layers of it when I am staining anything, just lay it in the funnel and pour your liquid through it. I tend to spritz it with water before using it as it reduces the amount of juice I loose to the fabric soaking it up.
I have these thin muslin cloths that were sold as dish towels at a discount store. They are more than twice the size of any dish towel I've ever seen. They work great for jelly making and for straining curd when I make yogurt cheese.
Mom said when she was young that grandma would keep and use the old worn out sheets to strain jelly.
