From a friend in the USA - some great ideas and things I'd never thought of...
Bet you didn't either!



COFFEE FILTERS
Coffee filters ..who knew!
And you can buy 1,000 for next to nothing!

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

2. Clean windows and mirrors. Coffee filters are lint-free so they 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 filter on a kitchen scale.

9. Hold taco's. Coffee filters make convenient wrappers for messy foods.

10. Stop the soil from leaking out of a plant pot. Line a plantpot with a filter to prevent 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. Put a few in a plate and put your fried bacon, French fries, chicken fingers, etc on them. Soaks out all the grease.

13. Keep in the bathroom. They make great "razor nick fixers."

OH YEAH THEY ARE GREAT TO USE IN YOUR COFFEE MAKERS TOO.

One of my friends sent me the same thing in an email a few hours ago. These hints are on both sides of the Pond at just about the same time. God bless modern technology!

Hope you are warm and well!

Very Happy

That's very interesting! Thanks Carole!
I have some of them and I don't know what to do of them, because the coffee machine which needs them, makes a very bad coffee Prrr , so I don't use it to make my coffees, but I use the boiler for American coffee. Anxious

I somehow think you mean you use the kettle NOT the 'boiler'...

Yeah, perhaps you're right... Anxious Angel
Anyway, American coffee needs more water than the Italian one, so even the boiler could be helpful... Shocked Mr. Green
