I have been given some unrefined unfiltered olive oil. Pesticide free, first cold pressed Olive Oil.

I am not sure if filtering it through muslin or coffee filter paper would be a better way to get rid of the cloudiness of the Olive Oil. Or is there a better way?

Has anyone done this?
Yes, it would do the trick.
There will be some cloudiness left but not a problem.
Dont get me wrong, but I would never use this beautiful olive oil in soap..:)

NNext time I'll get them to filter it but this was cheaper. Paper in a sieve takes hours for it to train through. I guess I'll try muslin next. Is there a quiicker way?
