Reuse your coffee grounds
If filtered coffee is part of your daily ritual, don’t throw away those precious grounds just yet. Coffee grounds have myriad uses, from enriching worm farms, fertilizer, and compost to serving as natural odor eaters (when dried and stuffed in old stockings). Some people even use them to scour greasy pans! Today, challenge yourself to research creative ways to use those grounds. More tips:
- Sprinkle them in ant-infested areas.
- Soak them in water overnight and use the darkened liquid as a natural wood stain.
- Rub them in your hands to eliminate strong odors from fish, garlic, or onion.
