We’re a nation of coffee lovers. Most of us cannot get through the day without our dedicated cup of joe. But as much as we like the aroma of freshly ground beans, we usually toss them away after use. Interestingly, used beans, also known as coffee grounds, can be reused and repurposed innovatively.
Browse through these ideas and never let your beans go waste.
De-Odorize Your Refrigerator
Do you cringe each time you open your freezer or refrigerator? Simply place a bowl of coffee grounds in the back and it will naturalize and absorb the unpleasant stench.
Clean Pots And Pans
Coffee grounds make for an excellent chemical-free cleanser. Wrap them in a piece of cloth, dab on some water and scrub the dishes. Their coarse texture acts as a natural abrasive to scour off grease and grime.
Clean Your Fireplace
Scatter some coffee grounds around the fireplace to weigh down the ash. This will prevent the ash from clouding around and creating a bigger mess when you shovel it. Once you’re done, it will also leave your room smelling like a fresh brew.
Exfoliate Your Skin
Mix coffee grounds with olive oil and sugar to make a simple, inexpensive body scrub. Try this DIY scrub to ease itchy, flaky dry skin.
Reduce The Appearance Of Cellulite
Mix half a cup of coffee grounds with 3 tbsp white sugar and coconut oil to prepare an anti-cellulite scrub. Use this scrub on your skin to minimize the appearance of bumpy skin.
Keep Pests Away
If your plants often get infested with insects and worms, sprinkle some coffee grounds on the soil. The strong scent of coffee repels insects and keeps the plants bug-free.
