Hey, I was buying nut milk bags for ten bucks. Yesterday was in the hardware store and looked down and saw a box of them!!! Sign said $1.26 a piece!!!
I picked one up. It was the cutest shape and even better than nut milk bag that I have. It was same material and everything. The sign had them as paint strainers. Who knew and woohoooo.
So if you want cheap juice and nut strainers, off to hardware store. Life is so juicy good.

Good to know!
(Now what would one want to strain paint for? Sounds awfully messy! LOL!)

Yup....gave the first "real" one I bought to my Mother and have been using the paint strainers ever since...$1.99/2 at Home Depot! I use them for juice made in the VM too..works great!

I made almond milk this past week and it is SOO gritty. I do have a FINE strainer, but it did NOT do the job. I need to go to Lowes and pick up a paint strainer... Thanks for the tip!! :)

I use them daily, I bought several made from hemp, but I need more than what I have. Thanks for the tip!
I'm another paint strainer bag user - cheap cheap!
I bought all mine at Sherman Williams and so far, so good - they've held up beautifully and I wring them with authority! *Ü*

I knew and didn't tell as I was afraid someone would tell me the material was toxic, made from from endangered species, or some other bad thing. Got mine at Home Depot, 2 for $2. I have four of them, never opened and I've yet to make nut mylk. Wonder if they'll work for straining paint? :D

But you do raise a good point... Are the paint strainers made of food grade material? I myself would be a little leery of using something for food preparation that wasn't made for that purpose.

not part of my world. It is exact same material as the costly bags. I also ate a peck of sand when I was a kid....hahahaha....life is so very very funny and we tend to take it so seriously
I love this idea. I didn't hear about it when I went raw a few years ago, and my same "official nut mylk bag" is still working like a charm. I like that I don't have to question it -- but still, I've recommended paint strainer bags to people who I know are on a tight budget but looking to add raw into their lives. :)
