Does anyone know how to filter cooking oil?

One of the best ways I've found is to use the basket from an old drip coffee maker. Put in a coffee filter, put it over a clean, dry container (empty medal coffee can works great) and pour in the oil. Don't overfill the beyond the filter and let some go through before adding more oil.

You can use a strainer, but the coffee machine filter does the job better. I do that too to save up oil. Cooking oil is starting to increase in prices again here in my area. So we try to save up oil. Another way for you to clear things up, if to fry potatoes in them. Potatoes are known to make cooking oil clear after each use. But of course, it would be weird to eat those if it's already been through many types of food since potatoes also suck in flavor and salts. Good luck!
