Things to do with used coffee grounds

Used coffee grounds have many uses in your home and garden. Instead of dumping them in the bin, try one of these alternatives next time you have a freshly ground coffee:
  1. Fertilizer. Add coffee grounds to indoor or outdoor plant soil.
  2. Deodorizer. Place used coffee grounds in a small bowl in your refrigerator or freezer, or put dried grounds in a sachet to absorb closet odors.
  3. Exfoliant. Rub old coffee grounds on your skin to exfoliate.
  4. Cleaner. Use coffee grounds as an abrasive cleaner on pots, pans and other stain-resistant objects.
  5. Dye. Soak used coffee grounds in hot water and use to dye paper, eggs, fabric or wood.
  6. Compost. Add old coffee grounds to your compost bin to increase nitrogen balance. Paper coffee filters can also be added to compost.
  7. Insect Repellent. Sprinkle coffee grounds around your plants to help keep insects and slugs away.
  8. Pin Cushion. Make a pin cushion with fabric scraps and fill with dried coffee grounds. The used coffee grounds will keep your needles and pins from rusting.
  9. Hand Deodorizer. Rub old coffee grounds on your hands to eliminate strong food odors after cooking.
  10. Grit. Sprinkle coffee grounds on your icy path or driveway in the winter. They provide traction to prevent slips and falls.
