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.

Come on now! With a handle name of zigzag, I'm surprised you didn't recommend coffee filters for "rolling your own smokes"

Sorry about that, now you know my age.

We have seen no mice near our coffee pot, proving coffee filters repel mice.

Politically green or environmentally green? Regardless, I bought a metal coffee filter about 10 years ago.

DEQ <span class="ev_code_GREEN">Green</span> I didn't know they made a metal filter. Where did you find it? Do they make them for all brands of coffeemakers?
