Using Coffee Grounds to Remove Odors

Here's a great way to use coffee grounds once you have made coffee. Dump your used coffee grounds into a container and keep, open, in the refrigerator. The used grounds make your fridge smell like coffee and absorbs all the unwanted odors at the same time.

When the container gets full, dump them around your azaleas. They have just what it takes to perk them up and get them going again, make a nice, rich looking mulch, and hold some moisture for the plants as well. The best fact of all is that they repel mosquitoes at the same time and are biodegradable while enriching your soil. So, go have a nice, hot cuppa coffee and start going green!

Also fresh ground coffee will get the odor out of most things. I was on a plane when a young toddler vomited. You know how well that smell travels. They cleaned up the best they could and spread fresh coffee around, couldn't smell anything other than coffee.
