Multipurpose Coffee Grounds

Get more from your coffee grounds then just a great drink.


| May 2009 Web


Every day, people enjoy roughly 1.4 billion cups of coffee. That’s a lot of coffee. More importantly, all those grounds add up in landfills across the world. But coffee grounds offer more then just a fantastic and addictive drink; use the grounds around your home, garden and even as a beauty product.

Here are a few tips for using your old coffee grounds. (A few of these tips can also be applied to tea bags and loose-leaf tea, noted with “T.”)

Home:

• The coarse texture of coffee grounds is perfect for scrubbing difficult-to-clean dishes. Pack the grounds into a square sized cloth, gather the cloth’s ends and secure with a rubber band. (T)

• After chopping garlic or other fragrant foods, rub grounds on your hands to get rid of the odor.

• Grounds can repel refrigerator odors. Use old nylons or an old sock as a small satchel filled with grounds and keep in your refrigerator or freezer.

• Diluted coffee grounds act as a natural flea rinse.

Sorry, I meant. "The best coffee beans I have ever bought have been from Rave Coffee, Has Bean and Hype Coffee. You say to buy them from your link - but are they always fresh. I like to http://www.hypecoffee.com/ from Hype Coffee if I can. They are a local roaster and specialise in single origin coffees and coffee beans. I would recommend them for freshness etc"
