3 ways to reuse coffee grounds

3 ways to reuse coffee grounds

After enjoying your morning coffee, save the grounds for the following uses.

1. Eliminate odors

Rub your hands with the grounds to eliminate fishy, onion or garlic odors after cooking.

2. Ants don't like coffee

Sprinkle coffee grounds in ant-infested areas for a natural pest control.

3. Coffee grounds for cellulite

In a bathtub or shower, massage used coffee grounds on your cellulite spots (usually upper thighs and hamstrings). Caffeine works on cellulite by increasing blood flow to the area—improved circulation breaks up excess water and toxins.  Apply two to three times a week and repeat as necessary.
