Your used coffee grounds can do much more!

Your used coffee grounds can do much more!

 One man’s cup of coffee is another man’s plant fertilizer. Believe it or not, there is so much that coffee can be used for apart from drinking it or baking with it. Yes. Not all of us make a practice out of regular coffee drinking. But a lot of us find ways to use coffee for its other benefits. Still confused? Read on because once you’re done brewing coffee, you don’t need to throw the used grounds away!

 Aromatic face packs? Yes, please!

Mix up some coffee powder, honey and fresh yogurt and spread on your face. Leave it on for 20 minutes and then gently massage your face with water. A generous 2-3 minutes of massaging while washing off will leave your skin feeling fresh & supple.

A coffee scrub a day keeps the smiles in place!

Unclog your pores & refresh your skin with a homemade ground coffee scrub; remove toxins, bring in smiles & let your skin glow naturally. All you need to do is mix 2 tablespoons of ground coffee with equal amounts of olive oil & coconut oil to reach an even consistency. Scrub away and rinse with warm water for a fresh face!

Removing smellies!

Used coffee grounds can be kept in a bowl near the source/space of where there is unwanted odor. Keep the windows shut and leave the space overnight; the grounds absorb any lingering odor & by the next day you can enjoy fresh interior air. 

Nutrition for your green friends!

Plants need a load of nitrogen & potassium and coffee is well-known to possess both nutrients. Once you have brewed your coffee, we recommend sprinkling some of it on the soil surrounding your plants and letting them get absorbed as natural fertilizer. 

Vessels, here we come!

The coarseness of coffee grounds makes it an excellent choice to scrub clean your pots & pans. You can use dried used coffee grounds to scrape your dishes clean and remove caked-on or stuck food particles from them. Make sure to rinse thoroughly after, otherwise your breakfast may smell of coffee the next morning, haha!

So now that you know, make sure not to throw out your coffee granules once you are done brewing. There is much to do, and it is easy to recycle your coffee instead of throwing it away.
