How to clean your Kleynhuis Pouch

Product Description:

Finally, a reusable alternative to cheesecloth for Greek yogurt lovers! Turn any colander into an ultra-fine strainer. Simply line your  colander with this bowl-shaped, reusable strainer pouch and  spoon in freshly made yogurt. While the yogurt is straining,  collect the nutritious whey in a bowl or pan underneath and use in future healthy food and beverage recipes. Thick and  creamy yogurt is just a couple of hours away!

For years, I’ve enjoyed the nutritious benefits, creamy taste, and personal satisfaction of making my own yogurt. But, straining yogurt was always such a pain and I knew there must be a better way! So, I experimented with many batches of yogurt and how best to strain it; I designed and sewed the pattern for the original Kleynhuis Pouch prototype; I made more Greek yogurt and tweaked the design; and then I spent a year figuring out how to make this Kleynhuis product available to others. 

These are the reasons I think the Kleynhuis Pouch is better than any other straining method out there:  1) It’s much easier to clean than cheesecloth; 2) It’s designed to strain at least a gallon at a time; 3) It fits easily in any drawer; 4) It’s not expensive; 5) The design fits most colanders/bowls that you already have in your kitchen.

So, no matter what method you use to make yogurt (crock-pot, oven, electric yogurt maker, Instant Pot, etc.), straining is the final step that will make your yogurt thick and creamy. Avoid any and all suggestions to add thickeners to your yogurt that will only alter the taste and require unnecessary additives! Don’t let the pain of straining yogurt take the joy out of making your own yogurt! Homemade yogurt tastes better, is more nutritious, and costs less. I love Danielle’s breakdown of reasons why you should make you own yogurt on her meal-planning blog, Project Meal Plan.

Kleynhuis Pouch Care Instructions: After using, turn the pouch inside out and hand wash with hot tap water and a mild, fragrance-free detergent (no bleach). Rinse, wring dry, and hang for a few minutes from your faucet so the sink catches any drips. Hang by the string to a cabinet door until completely dry. Nylon dries very quickly! Store in the handy zip bag to keep it clean until your next use. For stains, soak in warm water with 20% hydrogen peroxide. Wash before first use.
