Separating Coffee Filters

An easy way to get one coffee filter out of a stack is to use a pencil eraser. Simply place the eraser firmly against the side of top filter and slide upwards. This should easily separate one coffee filter and save you a great deal of frustration!

Clever idea :-) Wetting a finger tip will work, too :-)

Take the bunch and turn them inside out and voila. They are all separated.

lrrn567, I just had to get up immediately from the computer to give your idea a try! Excellent! Thanks for sharing :-)

Another way is to blow on them. They come right apart.

I turn the stack inside out, like Irrn567 - never have trouble, especially late at night when I'm trying to set the machine up for morning and all I want to do is get some sleep.

I just 'scrape' my thumb nail lightly from top to bottom on the outside, works for me.

I keep a rubber fingertip protector handy for the purpose of coaxing the coffee filters to separate.

I turn mine upside down too, very simple and nothing to lose (My luck, it would roll somewhere haahaa half asleep I wouldn't find it). However, I think I love the eraser idea, too.

To help separate coffee filters, flip a bunch inside out. That loosens them up and are easier to pull apart, especially first thing in the morning!

I don't know why, but the brown coffee filters are much easier to separate than the white ones. Go figure. (10/30/2007)
