How many of you use RSS feeds? Since they’re so popular and common in this day and age, I’m sure many of you do. Well, one of the things you may want to do is filter your RSS feeds. For example, let’s say you get a technology news feed from Yahoo! and you’re constantly getting posts about the iPhone and Windows Vista. But since you don’t have an iPhone and you don’t use Windows Vista, you want to filter out those posts. Not sure how to go about doing that? Then you’ve come to the right place, because I have exactly what you’ve been looking for!

If you want to filter your feeds, you can use a service called FeedRinse. FeedRinse is very easy to use, so let’s jump right in and give it a spin!

1.) First, head on over to and you’ll see the homepage.

2.) Click on the orange Sign Up Now button and then create your account. You’ll need to enter in a username, password and your e-mail address. When you’re finished, click on the Let’s Get Started button.

3.) Hit the Add Feeds button to continue.

4.) You’ll need to enter in the feed URL and then press Import. If you need to, you can get your feed URL from your RSS aggregator.

5.) Next, go ahead and add your filters. You can select from post, title, body or author.

6.) When you’re all done, click on Save Changes.

7.) If you want to filter out any more RSS feeds, you can repeat the process. Once you’re finished, click on Export Feeds and save the file to your desktop.

8.) The file can be imported into most RSS aggregators. To import it into Google Reader, go to and click on Settings.

9.) Next, click Import/Export and then press Browse to find the file, followed by Upload.

10.) The “rinsed” feeds will then be imported. The star next to the feed name indicates that it has been filtered or rinsed, just like this:

Cool, huh? Happy rinsing!
