Line Plant Pots With a Coffee Filter

Keep Soil Where It Belongs With a Coffee Filter

Next time you're repotting a plant, keep soil where it belongs with the help of a coffee filter. Simply lining the pot keeps the bottom drain hole free from clogging up — and soil from sneaking out after watering. Coffee filters are also seriously absorbent, so you can skip a watering here and there and not end up with a dried-up disaster. And you can spruce up plain terra-cotta pots with the help of some fabric, making your new container so chic. Happy planting!
