Coffee Filters COFFEE  FILTERS:  Inexpensive when purchased     at the dollar store and not just for making coffee (which helps  filter out the bad cholesteral raising coffee oils) …

1.  Cover bowls or dishes when cooking in the microwave. Coffee filters make excellent covers.

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

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

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.

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.  Use expensive strips to wax eyebrows?  Use strips of coffee filters instead.

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

14.  Keep in the bathroom. They make great “razor nick fixers.”

Any other ideas?  Please feel free to post!
