The many uses of coffee filters!

Coffee Filters?  I didn't realize the many uses of coffee filters until my friend Nalu shared a post on our group page.  I googled the different uses for coffee filters and there are so many!  I read one about odors and I am trying it out right now!  Being in a house with 3 boys will definitely make a girl cringe.  I have a small apartment and the wind blows through our 3rd floor windows quite often, but still there is a certain "boy smell" that I can't avoid.  We recently bought a shoe tree for our shoes and I have started noticing a smell.  It just makes me want to Febreeze it.  I also have sprays but I decided to give this baking soda idea a try.  I read that I can put some baking soda in a coffee filter and place near the area.  This makes a lot of sense since one use of baking soda is to keep a fridge from smelling badly.  So, why not?  Hopefully it works so I don't have to keep spraying the shoes down.  

So, here's some of the different uses that I found online for baking soda. I took them straight from the pages. Just click on the links to get more detailed information.  Have fun!
