Here are 8 wonderful uses for those used coffee grounds.

Deodorize Your Fridge

Placing a bowl of dry grounds in your refrigerator or freezer neutralizes the odour left by stale or spoiled food.

Reduce Under-Eye Puffiness

You’ve heard about those teabags? You can use coffee grounds too! Simply mix up the grounds with water to make a paste, smear on the affected area and leave it for 15 minutes.

Get Rid Of Cellulite

Mix the grounds together with coconut oil and massage onto your troubled spots. Leave for a few minutes before rinsing it off. Do it daily and see the difference for yourself after two weeks

For Perfume Testing

Getting confused with scents? Sniffing coffee grounds in between testing perfume helps clear the nose so the scents won’t merge and confuse you.

 Scrub your Hands

Rubbing a scoop of coffee grounds on your hands not only helps exfoliates your skin and removes dead skin cells; it also helps eliminate the odour on your hands after chopping garlic, onions or other smelly things.

Wash Your Hair

The grounds will help strip your hair off all that product build-up and leave it top to tip clean. Brunettes can also benefit on this as the coffee darkens the hair colour.

For Your Flower Vase

Instead of just good ol’ water, use a coffee-soil mix on your flower vase. It will lengthen your cut flower’s life and also act as an air freshener.
