    Default 29 Reasons to Use Coffee Filters for Survival

    Coffee filters are ubiquitous. They are inexpensive, light weight and readily available. Heck, you can purchase coffee filters at the Dollar store, Amazon Costco, the corner grocery and even on EBay.

    Now I will be first to admit that there are a lot of lists floating around with suggested uses for coffee filters but most include all kinds of uses that are nice, but irrelevant to the prepper. After all, if you are in experiencing hard times, or a survival situation, do you really care about preventing your fine china from chipping?

    Today I list 29 reasons why you should include coffee filters in your survival kit and preparedness pantry.

    I have another one (from my crazy youth ) - purify the sub-par Vodka (send it thru a coffee filter trice and you have the decent, less hangover-producing liquor).

    I obviously need to look on eBay - the Melitta ones I used to buy are very expensive.

    "Expensive" is a relative term. I get a pack of 100 unbleached filters for 99¢.

    Haven't bought any for ages, as I don't make filtered coffee any more - but the last ones were around $5-$6 for 40 bags. Maybe they have come right down in price.
