Seed cover, burlap vs white stuff

I do not want to use hay/straw because of the mess. Which of these alternatives works best?

How about Penn Mulch or Seed Aid? They are a recycled cellulose product in pellet form. They cost a lot more than straw but are good for areas of a few hundred square feet.

Unless I am reseeding on a steep bank where erosion is a concern in the event of a hard rain, I don't use anything. I have tried Penn Mulch on a few small jobs but really didn't notice any difference in germination rate.

As for hay/straw, all that does is introduce weeds at a later date IMO.
