Substitute Coffee Filter in a Pinch

I am looking for something to use as a coffee filter other than paper towels or coffee filter? I am out of them.

Well, there's not much more you can use to substitute a coffee filter with other than a paper towel or large heavy duty paper napkin.

If you can, go to a store like WalMart or Target and purchase a coffee pot that has a mesh basket that fits into the draining basket. I've had one for a couple of years and found it for about $15.00. The cost has more than made up for the price of coffee filters and all you have to do is rinse after each use and wash by hand every couple of days. (11/06/2009)

Maybe try cutting up a linen kitchen towel? (11/07/2009)

Just came up with another idea! As long as the grounds aren't too small cheesecloth might work? (11/08/2009)

Once, I emptied some tea bags and refilled them with coffee. They don''t have any chemicals, like paper towels, or flavor, like napkins. Just don't over-fill them or they will leak. (04/02/2010)
