    Default Just slightly OT: Coffee filters


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

    Would that be the cone shaped one or the basket shaped one? I guess that
    depends on one's goal. :-)

    Wine opener? Heck, I just smash the neck of the bottle against a
    low brick wall and proceed with the coffee filter. Why risk busting
    up the cork?

    I was a bit puzzled with some of the items on this list at first. Then
    I realized. "Oh, she's talking about the BASKET kind of filter!"

    ....been using a Braun cone-filter coffeemaker for at least 25 years...
    forgot that there was another kind of filter...

    You can line your colander with coffee filters when you drain the liquid
    from ricotta or cottage cheese.

    You're just foolin' with us, right? You do know those MD 20/20 bottles have
    a screw-cap, not a cork, don't you?

    Of course I read your posts; you're not always a putz, sometimes they are
    informative, sometimes they are jocular as was the one and I responded in
    kind.

    Peter Lucas is the only regular poster whose messages I try to completely
