coffee filter ideas

I use coffee filters to clean my windows and mirrors but I recently got an email with other ways to use them.
-------------------------------------------------------
Coffee filters ..who knew! And you can
buy 1,000 at the Dollar Tree for almost nothing.

COFFEE FILTERS:


Not just for making coffee....
----------------------------------------------------------

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. Do you think we used expensive
strips to wax eyebrows? Use strips
of coffee filters.


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."
