- Baking soda isn’t the only odor remover for the fridge, place a bowl of fully dried grounds in your fridge to reduce odor.
- Grab an old kitchen wash cloth and put a few used grounds on it. It’s a great way to scrub grease and grime off of dirty pots and pans.
- Pour some of the grounds down the garbage disposal to deodorize it. Don’t overdo it though; you don’t want to clog the pipes.
- One of the most popular uses for old grounds is to toss them in the compost pile; they make excellent “green matter” because they are rich in nitrogen.
- If you are growing seedlings, stir grounds into the soil.
- Scatter used grounds around your plants to keep pests like ants and snails away.
