WFMW - Coffee filters

Some terrific coffee filter tricks!
  1. Cover a bowl of food with a coffee filter to prevent splattering when cooking in the microwave.
  2. Coffee filters can shine your mirrors, TV screen and your computer monitor.
  3. Prevent rust in your stored iron cookware by placing a coffee filter in it to absorb moisture.
  4. Clean your glasses with a coffee filter and they will be lint free.
  5. Place a coffee filter over the drain hole in the bottom of a planter so the soil won't leak out.
  6. Use a coffee filter line your round cake pans.
  7. Use filters to serve pretzels, popcorn, cookies and even hot dogs.
  8. Put baking soda or borax into a coffee filter and insert into shoes or a closet to absorb or prevent odors.
  9. After deep fat frying, use coffee filters in a mesh strainer to help catch the small bits of food from the oil.
  10. Use coffee filters to separate your china plates and keep them from rattling.
