You can even use coffee filters to clean your electronics! They’re great for wiping down your TV, computer, gaming systems, and more. These things tend to collect a lot of dust, so this will ensure your electronics will be left looking spotless.

7. Eating popsicles

Just place a coffee filter in between some of your China plates and it’ll protect them from scratches among other things. It’s perfect for stacking your dishes!

9. Straining wine


Has a cork ever fallen into your wine bottle and broke into a bunch of pieces? Just place a coffee filter over the wine bottle opening and strain the wine into a new container- without the corky mess!
