10 uses for coffee groundsDeodorize
Place a bowl of dry, unused coffee grounds
in your refrigerator or freezer to get rid of
spoiled or stale food odors.

Exfoliate
Create a paste by mixing brewed coffee
grounds with a little water. Spread on your
face, neck or any dry areas, and rub in circularmotions to exfoliate your skin.

Repel ants
Sprinkle dry, brewed coffee grounds in areas where you
notice ants, indoors or out. To tackle ant mounds in your
yard, pour an entire pot of brewed coffee right on the
mound.

Scrub dishes
Get rid of grease or tough grime by adding a few teaspoons of coffee grounds to your rag and scrubbing. Rinse thoroughly.

Shine hair
Coffee is a simple, natural treatment that can give hair some extra shine. Brew up an extra-strong pot, let it cool and apply it to dry, clean hair. Leave it on for 20 minutes, then rinse. Repeat once a week for best
results.

Hide wood scratches
Using brewed grounds or dampened instant coffee grounds and a cotton swab, dab into scratches in dark wood and watch the scratches disappear.

Create a dye
In a pan of water, add coffee grounds and submerge a sheet of white paper for about two minutes. Let dry and brush off the grounds and you have paper with an antique look! You can also use this process to dye fabric or even eggs.

Repel cats
Tired of cats using your garden as a giant litterbox? Sprinkle used coffee grounds mixed with some orange peel on the soil, and the cats will find another place
to do their business.

Reduce cellulite
Many cellulite creams include caffeine in their ingredient list. It is believed to enhance fat metabolism, reducing the appearance of fatty pockets under the skin. Make your own cellulite treatment by mixing warm brewed coffee grounds with coconut oil. Rub
onto your skin in circular motions for a few minutes, then rinse!

Fertilize
Coffee grounds are rich in phosphorous, potassium, magnesium and copper and release nitrogen into the soil as they degrade. Sprinkle brewed grounds around the roots of your houseplants or save up your grounds to use in a garden or flower bed.
