Next time you enjoy your morning cup (or two) of coffee, save those grounds! Check out these five great ways you can put them to use.
- Remove Household Odors
Fill a bowl with coffee grounds and place near pesky odors. The coffee grounds will help absorb smells, leaving a nice coffee aroma.
- Exfoliate Hands and Skin
Gently exfoliate and reenergize your skin by applying coffee grounds to wet skin, then rinsing. Or, blend with a natural base oil, such as coconut oil, to leave your hands feeling soft and smelling wonderful.
- Clean Hard-to-Clean Dishes
Sprinkle coffee grounds onto hard-to-clean dishes before washing. The absorbent grounds and coarse texture make them ideal for scrubbing away grease and grime.
- Nurture Plants
Toss coffee grounds into your garden or potted plants to help your plants grow. The coffee grounds add organic material and microorganisms to the dirt.
- Help Compost
Add used coffee grounds to your compost pile for an added source of nitrogen to help soil and compost break down faster.
