Three Useful Ways to Reuse Your Coffee Grounds

Stonegate Apartments - Tuesday, December 20, 2016


Coffee is a mainstay in many apartment communities, including ours! No need to fill your trash with all of your coffee grounds, though – you can reuse them with these simple DIYs:

  1. Under Eye Treatment – The caffeine in coffee grounds promote healthy circulation and decrease inflammation, making them great for dark under eye circles and puffiness! Simply mix the ground beans with milk or olive oil until it forms a paste, carefully apply to the under-eye area, and let it dry. Gently remove with water after 10 – 15 minutes.

  2. Compost and Fertilizer – Used grounds provide a great pH level and source of nitrogen, making them a nutrient-rich fertilizer. Acid-loving plants, such as azaleas and roses, especially love this.

  3. Neutralize Refrigerator Smells – Like baking soda, used coffee grounds can get rid of funky smells that may linger in your refrigerator. Simply place the used grounds into a container and leave it in your fridge. Within days, they will suck up the smell, and no one will be the wiser!

However you use them, we’re sure you’ll enjoy the coffee at your Stonegate apartment.
