Description

If your family drinks coffee, just hold on to an empty coffee can and empty your coffee filters into it instead of throwing them in the trash. Try to save at least half a can full before you start using it. Keep it tightly sealed to prevent molding. If you don't drink coffee, you might be able to ask a friend or family member to save up their used coffee grounds for you.

Surprising Uses for Coffee Grounds in your Home If your family drinks coffee, just hold on to an empty coffee can and empty your coffee filters into it instead of throwing them in the trash. Try to save at least half a can full before you start using it. Keep it tightly sealed to prevent molding. If you don't drink coffee, you might be able to ask a friend or family member to save up their used coffee grounds for you. Apply the coffee grounds to your plants. When you are ready to use the coffee grounds, simply sprinkle them over your plant's soil or work them into the soil with your fingers. Adding spent coffee grounds directly to a plant's soil not only provides nitrogen to the plant, but also improves the water retention ability of the soil.  Save the coffee grounds for fertilizing your plants. Because coffee grounds are granular, relatively pH-neutral, and rich in nitrogen, they make a great fertilizer for houseplants and garden plants. You can save coffee grounds (while discarding the filters) in a small container for use as a fertilizer. Once you have a substantial amount of coffee grounds saved up, you can begin using them. Just add enough water to the can to make a thick soup out of the grounds. If you want to give it some extra oomph (which is a good idea if you have fire ants) you can add 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper powder for every 3 cups of grounds, then add water and stir. -Got ants? Now you can put the coffee ground slurry onto the ant mounds. You'll want to do this right after dark when the ants are less active. That's why you need to mark the mounds, so you can find them easily. Pour about 1 cup of the mix into the top of each ant mound. If they are rather large mounds, you might want to use more. Get shiny hair Who doesn't want shiny, healthy-looking hair? Coffee is often recommended as a simple, natural treatment to make hair extra-glossy. Brew up an extra-strong pot, let it cool and apply it to your dry, clean hair. Leave it on for at least twenty minutes, then rinse. Keep it up once a week or so for best results.
