Secrets of Success

Alternative Uses For Coffee Filters



1.Save a bottle of wine - Broke the cork? No problem. Just place a filter over a pitcher and carefully pour the wine into it.
2.Protect china and non-stick cookware. Place a coffee filter between dishes or pans when storing or packing.
3.Keep your microwave clean. Prevent splatters by covering dishes or bowls in the microwave with coffee filters. Using another plate is your best bet, but filters are a good alternative to plastic wrap. And you can easily reuse them a few times.

  • Use a coffee filter to strain the whey out of regular yogurt to make a thicker Greek-style yogurt with a higher protein content. You can also use the strained yogurt instead of cream cheese in cheesecakes. - by JBINAUSTIN

    coffee filters are also the best thing to use to clean windows and mirrors! we used to use them in a restaurant i worked at and the doors and windows always looked so pretty afterwords when we used them instead of paper towels - by EMIM05
  • For the photographers out there - you can cut a coffee filter to size and use it as a diffuser for your pop-up flash. I have used it and it works great! - by THM_CAROL
