Coffee  filters .... Who knew!   And you can buy 1,000 at the Dollar Tree for almost nothing even the large ones.

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

2. Clean windows, mirrors, and chrome...  Coffee filters are lint-free so they'll leave windows sparkling.
3.  Protect China by separating your good dishes with 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.  It soaks out all the grease. 

14.  Keep in the bathroom.  They make great "razor nick  fixers."
15.   As a sewing backing.  Use a filter as an easy-to-tear backing for embroidering or appliqueing soft fabrics.
16.  Put baking soda into a coffee filter and insert into shoes or a closet to absorb or prevent odors.
17.  Use them to strain soup stock and to tie fresh herbs in to put in soups and stews.
18.  Use a coffee filter to prevent spilling when you add fluids to your car.
19.  Use them as a spoon rest while cooking and clean up small counter spills.
20.  Can use to hold dry ingredients when baking or when cutting a piece of fruit or veggies..  Saves on having extra bowls to wash.
21.  Use them to wrap Chris tmas ornaments for storage.
22.  Use them to remove fingernail polish when out of cotton balls..
23.  Use them to sprout seeds.  Simply dampen the coffee filter, place seeds inside, fold it and place it into a plastic baggie until they sprout.
24. Use coffee filters as blotting paper for pressed flowers.  Place the flowers between two coffee filters and put the coffee filters in  phone book.
25.  Use as a disposable "snack bowl" for popcorn, chips, etc.



      Ole staggered home very late after another evening with his drinking
buddy, Sven.

      He took off his shoes to avoid waking his wife, Lena. He tiptoed
quietly toward the stairs leading to their upstairs bedroom, but
misjudged the bottom  step. As he caught himself by grabbing the
banister, his body  swung around and he  landed heavily on his rump. A
whiskey bottle in each back pocket broke and made the landing especially
      Managing not to yell, Ole sprung up, pulled down his pants, and looked
in the hall mirror to see that his butt cheeks were cut and bleeding. He
managed to  quietly find a full box of Band-Aids and began putting a
Band-Aid as best he  could on each place he saw blood. He then hid the
now almost empty box and shuffled and stumbled his way to bed.
      In the morning, Ole woke up with searing pain in his head and butt and
Lena staring at him from across the room.
      She said, "You were drunk again last night weren't you Ole?"
      Ole said, "Why you say such a mean ting?"
      "Well," Lena said, "it could be the open front door, it could be the
broken glass at the bottom of the stairs, it could be the drops of blood
trailing through the house, it could be your bloodshot eyes, but's all  those Band-Aids stuck on the downstairs mirror."



  Did you hear about the 82 year old woman who talked herself out of a ticket by telling the officer she was trying to get to her destination
before she forgot where she was going? 
Makes perfectly good sense to me!!!
