Modern capsule coffee machines may produce great drinks, but there’s one thing they don’t provide us with – an abundance of coffee filters.
There are so many great uses for coffee filters that they’re definitely worth having around the home – whether you use them for actual coffee or not!
The beauty with coffee filters is they can generally be reused more times than a paper towel and they leave no lint at all. I try not to use paper when cloth will do, but there are some jobs where a cloth just won’t work.
You use coffee filters every day to make your favorite morning brew, but they have lots of other uses around the house.
Let’s find out how coffee filters are used beyond coffee brewing:

Older bottles of wine may collect sediment, including dead yeast cells, bits of grape, and phenolic molecules. You can remove sediment and rid the wine of any grittiness by filtering it out through an unbleached coffee filter.
Don’t let cork crumbs ruin your enjoyment of a good glass of wine. If your attempt at opening the bottles results in floating cork crumbs, just decant the wine through a coffee filter.
