You can give your spot the sweet smell of coffee with a homemade air freshener. Simply fill a pot with coffee beans, two tablespoons of molasses, and two cinnamon sticks. As the pot simmers for two hours, the aroma of coffee will fill the air.
Improve your garden
If you need fertilizer for your garden, use coffee grounds. Fortunately, coffee grounds have important nutrients for plant growth, including iron and nitrogen.
Take care of your drain
If you have a clogged drain, combine a cup of coffee grounds with dish soap. Pour the mixture down the drain to help clean things.
Get rid of insects
Insects can be annoying if you don't have the right repellent. Fortunately, coffee grounds can cause insects to cower in fear. Place a bowl of coffee grounds in areas where insects are seen the most.
Wash your hands
If you don't have any hand soap, use coffee grounds instead. Wet the coffee grounds before rubbing them on your hands.
Get rid of fleas
If your pet has fleas, coffee grounds can help get rid of them. Rub them on your pet after you're done shampooing them.
Take care of your hair
You can rub coffee grounds in your hair to remove residue left behind by shampoo. Do this while taking a shower to see better results.
Get rid of odors
Coffee grounds can remove nasty odors in certain areas. Store a decent amount of coffee grounds in the fridge to prevent smells from rotten food.
