1. Use coffee grounds as fertilizer

Coffee grounds are a really effective fertilizer that you can use on your plants - they are full of nutrients that help your plants grow. Just sprinkle them around the base of the plant and water as usual.

You can also add coffee grounds to compost to create a nutritious blend for your plants. Coffee grounds help to increase the amount of nitrogen in the compost, which is important for plant growth.

Just make sure you do not use too much - too much coffee grounds can make the soil too acidic for the plants. A good rule of thumb is to mix some coffee grounds with ten parts other compost material.

And if you have pets, keep in mind that coffee grounds can be harmful to them if ingested, so it's best to keep them out of reach.

2. Clean your hands with coffee grounds

Coffee grounds are effective if you have oil stains on your hands that you just can not get rid of.

Just rub coffee grounds into your hands and wash them off with soap and water. The oil will get rid of immediately!

You can also use coffee grounds to exfoliate your skin - just make a paste with a little water and rub it into the skin in circular motions. Rinse it off with warm water and enjoy a softer and smoother skin.

And if you have smelly hands after cooking, try rubbing them with coffee grounds before washing them - the coffee grounds will help neutralize the odors.

3. Coffee grounds which remove odors

Do you also know the odor nuisance from opening the fridge to the smell of an Old Ole? Coffee grounds can help you with that!

Just put a bowl of coffee grounds in the fridge (or where the smell comes from) and leave it there for a few days. The coffee grounds will absorb the bad smells and leave your home with a fresh and clean scent.

You can also use coffee grounds to get rid of odors in your car - just put a small bowl of coffee grounds in the car and it will do its job!
