Reed Cheese Mat
This 9"x9" bamboo reed mat is used for air drying cheeses, particularly soft, mold ripened ones. They are also commonly used for the turning and draining of Camembert, Coulommiers, and Brie.
TO CLEAN: Rinse well with cold water after each use, then wash with hot water and a neutral alkaline cleanser or dairy wash. Do NOT use commercial detergents for this product. If mat is really hard to clean you can soak in the dairy wash before giving it a good scrub. If mat still retains an odor after a good cleaning, try hanging outdoors in the sun for awhile (the traditional method used in Europe!)
