A two part kitchenware/decorating question. Ok, the two parts have not much to do with each other. Except they are both in my house. a) how to hang large photographic prints without frames in a way that looks cool and b) I'm making a lot of yogurt these days and straining it with cheesecloth. The cheesecloth gets kind of funky after a while. What can I use instead or how can I wash it?
Hope this is kosher. 2 small questions for the price of one.
a) I'm a photographer. Both at home and for shows I'd like to be able to show photographs in a way that looks good and is cheap (aka no frames). In the past I've seen prints hung from wires strung horizontally against the wall, with the prints clipped to the wires. I've also seen little pieces of metal attached to the wall and then prints attached with magnets.
My prints are generally fairly large (13x19) with a white border around the print.
Are there any examples online about how to pull this off and make it look hip and nice? Basically the cost of frames is preventing me from doing a lot of things, both at home and for shows and I think this would be a good solution.
b) I'm making a lot of yogurt these days, based on this article by Howard McGee
. At the end I strain it with cheesecloth in a strainer.
The cheesecloth gets filled up with yogurt. Normally I soak it in a pot with hot water and then squeeze it out multiple times, then let it hang to dry. It gets kind of stiff and I can never get it totally clean.
I tried putting it in the washing machine and that made it bunch up and basically ruined it. Is there anything I could use instead of cheesecloth that would work as well? Coffee filters or something? Or is there a better way to clean it?
