While making my Coffee Lover Ornament I was thinking about other uses for coffee beans that make our favorite cup of “Joe”! So I researched and this is some fun facts I uncovered.
Do you want to Kill Fridge Odor?
Place a bowl of fresh, unused coffee grounds inside and leave it for a day or two.
Ever Wonder how you can Reduce Cellulite using Coffee?
Pricey cellulite creams almost always have one major ingredient in common: caffeine. Mix warm used coffee grounds with coconut oil and rub it onto your skin in circular motions for a few minutes before rinsing.
Make your own Rich Compost and get that garden started!
Add used coffee grounds to compost. The grounds are rich in phosphorous, potassium, magnesium and copper, they release nitrogen into the soil as they degrade and they’re a little bit acidic.
Who doesn’t want Shiny Hair?
Brew up an extra-strong pot, let it cool and apply it to your dry, clean hair. Leave it on for at least twenty minutes, then rinse. Keep it up once a week or so for best results.
Want people clamoring to know your Secret Recipe Ingredient?
Just a little hint of coffee can be the ingredient that becomes your undisclosed “magic touch” in foods like chili, ice cream and chocolate cake. Use a little bit as a marinade for steaks and not only will it make them unbelievably tender, it’ll also provide a hint of deep, smoky flavor.
So why did I start out this post with DIY?
I know many people love DIY projects! I decided to offer the ornaments I make also available as kits. You can have the fun of creating it yourself! If this is of interest let me know and I can give you the information to purchase a kit. Let me know here or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please let me know if you try any of the suggestions for using coffee beans!
