COFFEE FILTERS

This has been around before but if you haven’t seen it, it works pretty well, better than paper towels and a lot less expensive…    <br />
 

COFFEE FILTERS

Coffee filters…. Who knew!   And you can buy 1,000 at the Dollar Tree for almost nothing even the large ones.

1. Cover bowls or dishes when cooking in the microwave. Coffee filters make excellent covers.  

2. Clean windows, mirrors, and chrome…  Coffee filters are lint-free so they'll leave windows sparkling.

3.  Protect China by separating your good dishes with a coffee filter between each dish.

4.  Filter broken cork from wine.  If you break the cork when opening a wine bottle, filter the wine through a coffee filter.

5.  Protect a cast-iron skillet.  Place a coffee filter in the skillet to absorb moisture and prevent rust.

6.  Apply shoe polish.  Ball up a lint-free coffee filter.  

7.  Recycle frying oil.  After frying, strain oil through a sieve lined with a coffee filter.

8.  Weigh chopped foods.  Place chopped ingredients in a coffee filter on a kitchen scale.

9.  Hold tacos.  Coffee filters make convenient wrappers for messy foods.

10.  Stop the soil from leaking out of a plant pot.  Line a plant pot with a coffee filter to prevent the soil from going through the drainage holes.

11.  Prevent a Popsicle from dripping.  Poke one or two holes as needed in a coffee filter.

12.  Do you think we used expensive strips to wax eyebrows?  Use strips of coffee filters..

13.  Put a few in a plate and put your fried bacon, French fries, chicken fingers, etc on them.  It soaks out all the grease.  

14.  Keep in the bathroom.  They make great "razor nick fixers."

15.   As a sewing backing.  Use a filter as an easy-to-tear backing for embroidering or appliquéing soft fabrics.

16.  Put baking soda into a coffee filter and insert into shoes or a closet to absorb or prevent odors.

17.  Use them to strain soup stock and to tie fresh herbs in to put in soups and stews.

18.  Use a coffee filter to prevent spilling when you add fluids to your car.

19.  Use them as a spoon rest while cooking and clean up small counter spills.

20.  Can use to hold dry ingredients when baking or when cutting a piece of fruit or veggies..  Saves on having extra bowls to wash.

21.  Use them to wrap Christmas ornaments for storage.

22.  Use them to remove fingernail polish when out of cotton balls.

23.  Use them to sprout seeds.  Simply dampen the coffee filter, place seeds inside, fold it and place it into a plastic baggie until they sprout.

24. Use coffee filters as blotting paper for pressed flowers.  Place the flowers between two coffee filters and put the coffee filters in phone book…

25.  Use as a disposable "snack bowl" for popcorn, chips, etc.
   

OH YEAH THEY ARE GREAT TO USE IN YOUR COFFEE MAKERS TOO.

What to take to bed with you – not a joke.

keys

Put your car keys beside your bed at night

Tell your spouse, your children, your neighbors, your parents, your Dr's office, and the check-out girl at the market, everyone you run across.

Put your car keys beside your bed at night.

 

If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car….. The alarm will be set off,

and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies.

 

This tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator. Next time you come home for the night and you start to put your keys away, think of this:

It's a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation. Test it. It will go off from most everywhere inside your

house and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it with the button on the key fob chain.. It works if you park in your

driveway or garage. If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break into your house, odds are the burglar/rapist won't stick around.

After a few seconds all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough the criminal won't want that. And

remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot. The alarm can work the same way there. This is something that should

really be shared with everyone. Maybe it could save a life or a sexual abuse crime.  

 

P.S. I am sending this to everyone I know because I think it is fantastic. Would also be useful for any emergency, such as a heart attack, where

you can't reach a phone. My Mom has suggested to my Dad that he carry his car keys with him in case he falls outside and she doesn't hear him.

He can activate the car alarm and then she'll know there's a problem.   

 

Please pass this on even IF you've read it before. It's a reminder.

7 Don'ts After a Meal

?        Don't smokeExperiment from experts proves that smoking a cigarette after meal is comparable to smoking 10 cigarettes (chances of cancer is higher).

?        Don't eat fruits immediately Immediately eating fruits after meals will cause stomach to be bloated with air. Therefore take fruit 1-2 hr after meal or 1 hr before meal. 

?        Don't drink tea Because tea leaves contain a high content of acid. This substance will cause the Protein content in20the food we consume to be hardened thus difficult to digest.

?        Don't loosen your belt Loosening the belt after a meal will easily cause the intestine to be twisted and blocked.

?        Don't bathe Bathing will cause the increase of blood flow to the hands, legs & body thus the amount of blood around the stomach will therefore decrease.  This will weaken the digestive system in our stomach.

?        Don't walk about People always say that after a meal walk a hundred steps and you will live till 99. In actuality this is not true. Walking again will cause the blood to flow to the estremities and will cause the digestive system to be unable to absorb the nutrition from the food we intake.

?        Don't sleep immediately The food we intake will not be able to digest properly. Thus will lead to gastric & infection in our intestine.

FINALLY DONT JUST KEEP THIS EMAIL….PLEASE FORWARD IT TO YOUR   FRIENDS.
