Coffee Filter Uses

1. Cover bowls or dishes when cooking in the microwave. Coffee filters make excellent covers.
2. Clean windows and mirrors. Coffee filters are lint-free so they’ll leave windows sparkling.
3. Protect China. Separate your good dishes by putting 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. Soaks out all the grease.
14. Keep in the bathroom. They make great "razor nick fixers."

Otter tours Scotland

A postman who rescued a baby otter on a Scottish roadside took it on a 220-mile tour of the country in his mailbag.
Kenny Wilson, 50, of Tweedbank, in the Borders, spotted the cub - named Orla - lying on the A7 near Stow on Sunday.
He stopped his car, popped the animal in his mailbag to keep it warm and then bought it some kitten milk which he fed it through the tube of a ballpoint pen.
"She seemed happy enough and during our journey she kept crawling up my neck looking for more warmth."
He then took the otter with him on a Mini car enthusiasts' rally before taking it to an animal rescue center.
The six-week-old otter was said to be doing well at the Arthurshiel center near St Boswells in Roxburghshire.

St. Louis odor a mystery but not dangerous

Firefighters and gas company officials in St. Louis said they do not know the origin of a foul odor in the region but tests found it is not dangerous.
St. Louis firefighters and Laclede Gas workers said they investigated the odor, which numerous residents of the St. Louis area have reported in recent days, early Sunday and performed tests that verified that the air remains safe to breathe.
"People are wanting us to come out and check to give them reassurances that everything was OK," St. Louis Fire Capt. Robert Keuss said Monday. "We've checked it out and it is not dangerous."
Laclede Gas officials said they have determined that the odor is not natural gas related.
"We may never know where the smell actually came from," Keuss said. "We're telling the residents that it will eventually drift away. We're just hoping it goes away soon."
