Mmmm, the smell of fresh brewed coffee in the morning. You pour yourself a cup, turn off the coffee maker, and throw out the grounds. Wait! Stop doing that! Did you know coffee grounds have a ton of uses other than waking you up in the morning? It’s true. Many of our franchisees donate their coffee grounds to community gardens or to local customers. If you’ve been wasting yours, check out these five ways to reuse your leftovers.

Deodorize Your Fridge

fridgeDry out your used grounds on a baking sheet. Then pour them into a small container and pop it in the fridge. The coffee will soak up any odors from foods and will leave your fridge smelling great! Nice alternative to baking soda.

Miraculously Grow your Plants

PlantsIt might seem like a miracle but this all-natural method really is a great way to help nourish your plants. Sprinkle some used grounds onto the soil of your plants and watch them grow!

Elbow Grease to the Rescue!

Pots and PansUse coffee grounds on dirty pots and pans for added traction when scrubbing off burnt on food and grease. No harsh chemicals needed. Just some good old fashioned coffee grounds and a cleaning pad or sponge.

Exfoliate Naturally

Add coffee grounds to the list because of its excellent exfoliating abilities, not to mention the energy from the caffeine that will leave your skin feeling refreshed! Mix it up with a little honey or mashed avocado and scrub a dub dub.

Get Crafty and Clean!
