There are some good tips here, although I never have had any luck trying to use them for straining. Maybe it's just me. :? Also, I didn't quite "get" the coaster idea - wouldn't the filter absorb the water and still stain the furniture (with real wood) or at least still be wet on glass table tops, etc? Meh, whatever.

I don't see how they could be an effective coaster, they would still get the wood wet. And as a bag to hold herbs/spices for soups? I would think it would fall apart from being in the cooking pot! I've used a few between plates when moving or storing them, that worked fine.

We used them when we moved, too. I have a bell collection and a tea cup collection, so we used them to help wrap those delicate things and it worked real well. If I was going to use them to hold spices for making soup, I'd double them, at least. I did like the idea about using a "sachet" in the fridge because having that damn box in there is a pain in the tushie.
