How are you enjoying your coffee this morning? Just kidding, now I know other than coffee helping us to stay awake or keep us pulling through for the day, coffee grounds do so much more wonders than just giving us a caffeine kick. Don’t toss them out; find out how you can use your used coffee grounds here!
Have you ever wondered how much you spent on your coffee? I get it. Nobody wants to think about their expenditure. Meanwhile, coffee prices are at an all-time high and it doesn’t appear that they will be decreasing anytime soon. So, here’s what I think you should do to make sure you are getting your money‘s worth from each cup of coffee you drink.
Coffee grounds contain nitrogen, which helps eliminate a foul-smelling sulfur gas from the air when it’s combined with carbon. In other words, coffee grounds can help absorb and eliminate odors. You can place a bowl of coffee grounds in your fridge or freezer to neutralize odors from spoiled or fragrant foods. If you notice some funky smells emanating from your freezer or refrigerator, maybe this might just do the trick. It’s simple. The cup of unused coffee grounds stays inside and wait while you sit back and relax as the coffee grounds will absorb the odor.
Another creative way to make use of those coffee grounds is to fill them up in your old socks or pantyhose. Just put a good amount of those in your old socks or pantyhose, think of it like a homemade potpourri. So, tie them up and there you go, instant portable air fresheners! Everywhere you go might just smell good! Of course, you can even keep the coffee grounds by the sink and use them to scrub your hands after chopping garlic or onions. The grounds will help remove the smell from your hands. Isn’t that fantastic? Finally, you have a use for those coffee grounds—a DIY air freshener!
