4. Grease Absorber
Next time you order a pizza and you want to mop up some of that grease before indulging, donít waste your time with napkin after napkin. Instead, try using a coffee filter ó they are made to absorb liquid. Go ahead and mop away! Now you can eat your greasy foods with (a little) less guilt.
5. Fake Flowers and Other Party Decorations
Coffee filters make excellent fodder for art projects. They tend to work like tissue paper but hold together better. One way of coloring a basic white coffee filter is to submerge it in a dish with food coloring and let it dry. Once you have your desired color, stack the filters and staple together, then pouf out the layers. Create flowers that can be used in a bowl as a centerpiece or strung together to make a garland.
6. In Between Dishes When Packing
Instead of newspaper, which can get cumbersome and bulky, use coffee filters in between dishes when packing them in a box. They are more or less the same size as a salad plate and are equally as thick as a page of newspaper.
