Simple Survival Tips – Alternate Uses for Coffee Filters

Re-post Courtesy of Riverwalker's Stealth Survival

Coffee filters can be used for much more than just filtering coffee. Coffee filters have numerous alternate uses. This will save you money and make everyday tasks a lot easier. Consider the following alternate ways to use coffee filters. Use your leftover coffee filters from an old coffeemaker or simply buy a few to help make things a little easier. Coffee filters can be very useful in a number of different ways and are a great storage item with multiple uses.

Filter Used Cooking Oil

Don't waste cooking oil in your fryer just because it contains a few crumbs. Use a coffee filter to filter the particles out. This will allow you to re-use the cooking oil. You may need to stir it occasionally to move aside any particles that may be blocking the filtration process.

Make Herb and Spice Bundles

Fresh herbs and spices are often used to season or to add flavor to soups or stews. Many times these need to be removed after the flavor has been released or when you are finished cooking. Simply wrap the herbs or spices in a coffee filter and tie up with a piece of twine. Place it in the food being prepared and it can be easily removed later. This is a good way to cook the flavor out of bay leaves, cloves, peppercorn, and many other herbs or spices that aren't normally eaten.

You can also use coffee filters to make tea bags using loose tea.

Use as a Water Filter

Coffee filters can also make great “expedient” type water filters, especially if you have no other means to filter your water. They are also lightweight and can be used as a substitute for paper towels.

Use as a Dusk Mask

If you don’t have a dust or particle mask handy, you could also use a coffee filter as an “expedient” dust mask in an emergency. They can even be moistened to help filter out particles better. Note: Coffee filters are not an acceptable substitute for regular dust and particles masks.

There are numerous uses for coffee filters. The only limits on their use is your imagination.

Staying above the water line!
