10 Ways to Recycle Your Used Coffee Grinds

There are actually many ways you can recycle and reuse your old coffee grinds to help preserve the environment and maintain your health.

  • Touch up furniture and other wood scratches with grounds and a Q-tip
  • Sprinkle around areas where pesky insects, slugs and snails dwell to drive them away
  • Mix with soil as a natural fertilizer for plants
  • Dye clothing or paper
  • Rub into your dog as an organic flea dip
  • Use to fill old pin cushions
  • Scrub away grease and grime from pots and pans
  • Throw on ashes before cleaning out the fireplace to reduce dust from spreading
  • Feed to worms to help with your garden
  • Mix grinds with one egg white and massage onto face like a mud pack

Recycling is just one way that we can help maintain the natural beauty of our environment, so next time you drink a cup of coffee save those coffee grinds for future use. Recycle
