Coffee Filters' Many Uses: Tip-of-the-Day #170


We all know that coffee filters are great for making coffee. But here are some convenient uses you might not have considered!

1. Cover bowls or dishes when cooking in the microwave. Coffee filters make excellent covers and keep food items from splattering your microwave's walls.

2. Clean windows and mirrors. Coffee filters are lint-free so they’ll leave windows sparkling.

3. Protect your valuable china. Separate your good dishes by putting a coffee filter between each dish. You'll avoid cracking and breaking that way.

4. Filter broken cork from wine. If you break the cork when opening a wine bottle, filter the wine through a coffee filter.

5. Protect a cast-iron skillet. Place a coffee filter in the skillet to absorb moisture and prevent rust.

6. Apply shoe polish. Ball up a lint-free coffee filter and spare yourself a cloth.

7. Recycle frying oil. After frying, strain oil through a sieve lined with a coffee filter.

8. Weigh chopped foods. Place chopped ingredients in a coffee filter on a kitchen scale.

9. Hold tacos. Coffee filters make convenient wrappers for messy foods.

10. Stop the soil from leaking out of a plant pot. Line a plant pot with a coffee filter to prevent the soil from going through the drainage holes.

11. Prevent a Popsicle from dripping. Poke one or two holes as needed in a coffee filter.

12. Wax eyebrows easily. You don't need expensive strips to wax eyebrows. Use strips of coffee filters instead - they are incredibly resilient.

13. Absorb grease in seconds. Put a few filters on a plate and put your fried bacon, french fries, chicken fingers, etc. on them. Soaks up all the grease.

14. Ideal razor nick fixer. Keep a filter or two in the bathroom. They make great “razor nick fixers.”
