And did you know all of this about coffee filters?....



And did you know all of this about coffee filters?.......

The following is part of an e-mail I recieved from my cousin Cindy the other day. Thank you Cindy! Who knew!.....

Coffee filters... And you can buy 1,000 at the Dollar Tree for almost nothing...

COFFEE FILTERS.....

Cover bowls or dishes when cooking in the microwave.

Coffee filters make excellent covers......

Clean windows and mirrors.

Coffee filters are lint-free so they'll

leave windows sparkling......

Protect china. Separate your good dishes by putting a coffee filter between each dish.....

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

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

Apply shoe polish. Ball up a lint-free coffee filter......

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

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

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......

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

Put a few in a plate and put your fried bacon, french fries, chicken fingers, etc on them. Soaks out all of the grease....

Keep in the bathroom. They make great 'razor nick fixers'...

The best way to use them though is in your coffee makers.... There is nothing quite like a good cup of perked coffee except maybe a hot cup of tea :>)

Can you think of any other great ways to use coffee filters?.... I look forward to hearing from you...

With warmest regards, Carol

I am going to print this out and keep it! So many handy things for filters!!

Kathy said...

that is really neat :) I didn't know all the things you could use a coffee filter for. I did know about the cleaning windows (or in my case mirrors) I use them all the time for that! Another good cover for the microwave is a large leaf of lettuce. It keeps the food covered and adds moisture at the same time :) Nice post Carol. I really enjoyed it! And thank you so much for the nice comment about my mother. That was so sweet of you.

I got that same email and I was surprised by all of the filters' uses. The only one I'm doing is protecting the stacked china plates.

The only one I had been doing that is...I'll be trying more of them if I can remember them all...

Yikes. I've been missing out. No coffee doesn't have to equal no coffee filters, does it?
Thanks.
