Things to do with used coffee - suggestion 1

Have you ever wondered what to do with used coffee grounds, besides putting them in the bin?

We have a few suggestions for you over the next few weeks so you can make use of your coffee even after it has been enjoyed!!

Our first suggestion is that it can be used much like baking soda for absorbing food odors in the refrigerator and freezer. Just load up a small open container with your old grounds, place it in the back of the fridge, then forget about it for a couple of weeks while you collect more grounds. As an added bonus, after you remove smelly old grounds from the refrigerator or freezer, you can then toss them on the compost pile or use them for fertilizer!

This trick uses the natural absorbant qualities of coffee - this absorbancy is also the reason you shouldbn't store your fresh coffee in the fridge as it takes on the odours and tastes of other products in their - cheesy/fishy coffee has never been known to taste great!!
