5 Unexpected Uses for Coffee
Coffee in its most traditional form – brewed, in a mug, in the morning, in your hand – is, by far, the most essential way to consume the caffeine-laden beans. But there are other ways to enjoy coffee that venture beyond drinking it. We’ve collected five unexpected uses for coffee other than as a pick-me-up-style beverage.
Ready to get caffeinated in a whole new way? Brew a cup of your favorite java, save the grounds, and let’s get creative!
1. As a facial scrub
Use coffee grounds (preferably organic ones) and organic coconut oil to mix up an antioxidant-fueled treat for your face. Get the two-ingredient recipe here.
2. As a gardening secret weapon
The uses for coffee in your yard are extensive: fertilizer, mulch, worm food, keeping slugs and snails away, and more. Get details here on how to use coffee to keep your lawn and garden box game going strong.
3. As a hair mask
Try rubbing coffee grounds into your hair before you shampoo and condition, leaving them in for a few minutes before rinsing, for a shine-inducing mask. (This is especially effective for those with dark hair.)
4. As a furniture restorer
Scratches in wood furniture can drive you crazy, but now coffee can come to the rescue! Combine used grounds, warm water, and vinegar to create a natural stain. More here.
5. As a fridge freshener
Do your refrigerator’s contents sometimes leave it smelling less than fresh? Try using coffee grounds to deodorize the space! Details here.
