25 Other Uses for Coffee Filters

I use a permanent silk filter for my coffee maker, but I still have open packages of filters. Now I can put those filters to work doing other things! Here are a few of the list of 25:
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.

As a student, I ended up with a bottle of booze but no corkscrew, trying to get it out just broke the cork and chipped the neck, but coffee filters to the rescue, just pour the mess through a filter.

Hai everybody.
A few ice cubes dropped into a glass of water will make it more refreshing and cooler.

Just thought I would post about something some people may not already know.

I love to use them for popcorn, but everybody else acts like I'm crazy, and they complain that I'm wasting valuable office supplies.
I have yet to see anybody else using them for snackin'.

You're not supposed to reuse frying oil. The heat apparently changes it chemically and makes it very unhealthy to use (as if it were healthy to begin with).

The other ideas just seem kind of silly and wasteful. A paper towel would suffice just fine in nearly all of them and be so much cheaper.
