I haven't told you all this yet, but I took up a part-time job working at a golf course as a bar tender and server. It gets me out of the house and social with other adults. It's also a job strewn with wasteful behavior that I am working to curb, but more on that another day. I tell you this now because last night at work, my silly coworker decided to put coffee filters on her head to be funny. All I thought was, "Great, now we can't use those again." But with today's 10 uses Tuesday on coffee filters, I have found 11 ways we could use the tainted coffee filters.
I would add to #3 (the air freshener) that you could put a couple drops essential oil in with that baking soda for a really pretty smell.
For my own suggestion I found another great use for coffee filters that applies perfectly to my own life. My son has been asking a lot about solar systems, planets, and the Earth orbiting the sun. I got him some books on the subject, but I thought this project would be perfect to help him see it in a more tangible way. You can make Earth pictures (and I would assume Sun as well with different paint) from coffee filters! What better way to frame a conversation on reusing, conserving, helping Earth, etc...!?!
Ok, I am ready for yours. Bring 'em on! What are your brilliant coffee filter uses?
