A Little Truth In Advertising: About Those Dozens of Uses for Coffee Filters

One of my favorite parts of the Internet are the lists of clever uses for everyday objects. Why, just yesterday I referenced 20 Uses for Post-It Notes, and thoroughly enjoyed the list.

But, sometimes these lists grow to be a little too good to be true. Case in point Coffee Filters (which have at least 66 uses!). The Survival Mom took a closer look at some of these uses, and found out that most simply don't work.

Now, don't get me wrong, I'm actually a big fan of coffee filters. I like using them as sort of disposable bowls for snacks (among other users). But, one thing I like more than a good hack: the truth.

So, thanks The Surival Mom for helping make the Internet a little bit more realistic. And here's to actually trying the hacks I so love to report on. (Except for maybe the prison escape with dental floss hack. I'll leave that one to the pros.)
