Reusing Coffee Grounds

A couple of months ago I got myself a coffee press and started trying out different blends from my local Starbucks.

All this time I've been throwing away the coffee grounds when I could have been using them for something else.

According to the Natural Home Magazine article that this Lifehacker blog post points to, used coffee grounds can be used ...

  • as deodorizer for your refrigerator
  • dish washing pad
  • as fertilizer
  • as a facial mask
Uhm, I probably won't try that last one :-)
