I recently returned from vacation with souvenirs and a pile of coffee filters in tow. The beach house where we stayed had a drip coffee maker, while at home we have Keurig. What to do with all these coffee filters I wondered? A little research revealed all sorts of repurposing uses, and lots of money-saving ones at that.
Did you know that you clean windows and mirrors so that they sparkle using a coffee filter (Make It Missoula)?
