4 Unique Uses for Coffee

coffeeFertilizer: Sprinkle coffee grounds around roses and herbs. Coffee grounds are high in potassium which strengthens the plant’s natural defenses, leaving it less prone to pests. Coffee grounds will also keep cats from using your garden as a litter box!

Furniture Repair: For unsightly scratches in wood furniture, mix instant coffee with just enough hot water to create a paste. Rub the paste over the scratch and repeat until scratch matches the wood colour.

Glowing Skin: Combine cooled, fresh coffee grounds with olive oil and a little honey to create a facial scrub that will cleanse pores and leave your complexion glowing. For a great body treatment, mix equal amounts of fresh coffee grounds and shower gel to remove dry flaky skin and stimulate the skin and tissue!

Odour Control: A cup of fresh coffee grounds in your fridge can remove unpleasant odours in 1-2 days. Scrubbing your hands with a spoonful of coffee grounds after cooking can help remove odours from garlic, salmon and more.
