Plyban cheesecloth is a poly webbing used to line cheese molds when pressing curds. This thin material is less prone to wrinkle than bulkier cloths, which can help create a more uniform cheese surface.

Seems to work really well.
This cheesecloth is the best I have used.
Plyban sanitizes more easily than butter muslin with no residual odors. Plus, I have never had an issue with it adhering to the cheese. I still use butter muslin for hanging curds for soft cheese,but I think plyban is the easy, affordable, clean way to go for hard cheeses. My cheeses pressed with plyban are also much more uniform in texture.
I’ve used the plyban cheesecloth for 3 years now and it is outstanding! It is easy to clean and sanitize and so much stronger than butter muslin.
While I use other cheesecloth for general draining, I've cut my Plyban just large enough to fit my molds and use this to line the molds before filling and pressing. When done, I rinse it well and let it air dry. When I have several used cheesecloths, they go into my washing machine for a good wash and rinse. My regular cloths get machine dried - or dried on the clothesline. The Plyban does NOT handle dryer heat. But it goes through the washing machine well and then is hung to dry and dries quickly. I've used some pieces for years....probably well over 100 washes for some....and it's still holding up well.
