We all know you’re a fan of the drink, but have you been taking advantage of coffee’s other skills? Coffee grounds have a bevy of untapped potential and they’re just waiting to be discovered… by you!

1. Coffee Ground Facial Cleanser


Next time you have left over coffee grounds, mix 1-2 tablespoons with 2 -3 teaspoons of olive oil or coconut oil! This combination makes for an excellent facial cleanser because the coffee beans contain antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, while the oil is an excellent moisturizer.

2. Exfoliant and Hair Strengthener

During your next shower, you can use coffee grounds as an exfoliant on your body and your scalp! When you gently rub coffee grounds into your scalp, the nutrients promote hair growth and the exfoliating elements break down harsh buildups that are often left behind by shampoos and conditioners.

3. Deodorizer

Have a stinky drawer in your fridge? Put a shallow bowl of coffee grounds in the smelly area until the smell disappears! Coffee grounds will absorb the smell and will create a fresh scented aroma instead.

4. Insect Repellent

Sprinkle coffee grounds around the base of your plants to keep little critters from eating your beautiful garden! The coffee is believed the repel common backyard bugs and pests; giving your garden a chance to thrive!

5. Kitchen Helper


From your lasagna dish last night to your pan with friend vegetable remnants, coffee grounds can help scrub away stuck on food and grime. Just like coffee grounds will exfoliate your skin, they can exfoliate your dishes! When your sponge just isn’t enough, turn to coffee grounds!
