Your plants crave coffee just as much as you do! More so, though, they crave the minerals that help them grow that just so happen to hang out in coffee grounds. Simply toss some handfuls over your plants and let nature do the rest.
Fleas do not do coffee, which works in your favor if your furry friends are continuously plagued by the little pests. Shampoo your pet as usual, then follow up with a scrub of grounds -- it may even add a softness and shine to their coat. It's not a foolproof solution, though, so keep an eye on your pet's fur regardless.
Need to shine your dull cookware? Since the texture is so coarse, coffee grounds make a great option for scrubbing your pans until they look good as new.
Lush, a skin care brand known for using natural ingredients, has a great-smelling face mask called Cup O'Coffee that's used to brighten your complexion and buff away any dead skin. One of its main ingredients? Coffee grounds, duh. They're perfect exfoliators: not too rough and just enough vigor.
Topically-applied caffeine via coffee grinds can help break down fat and smooth out lines, all the while increasing blood flow. Combine with coconut oil for a paste and scrub on any pesky cellulite you're looking to get rid of.
Try your hand at some DIY by using coffee grounds as a coloring tool. We've all spilled coffee on a white shirt before, but doing it on purpose (just with the grinds instead) can add a fun, vintage feel to your clothing. Or, swap for Kool-Aid and use them in your hair.
Toss some coffee grounds into your dry rubs and season and cook as usual. The natural acid in the grinds can help soften the meat and even enhance the flavor.
The best way to get your hair to grow faster and longer is to stimulate your scalp, and you know what coffee grounds are great for? Stimulation! Massaging your scalp removes buildup and dead skin cells, and using caffeine to do so increases blood flow and hair growth even more.
If you create a coffee ground paste with water, you may be able to save your scuffed and scratched wooden furniture. Not only will it buff the scratches out, but the dark color of the grounds can help conceal them, too. It's cheaper than running to the store!
This may be a vicious cycle to get into, but if you're not getting the best sleep (hence the need for coffee in the first place), the grounds may be able to alleviate those unsightly under-eye circles. Because of the high antioxidants in coffee beans, forming a paste with water or coconut oil and coffee grounds and applying to the area can reduce the puffiness.
