1. Cellulite Cream
If you’ve ever used a store-bought product to help lessen the look of cellulite, you may have noticed that caffeine is commonly used as an ingredient. If you want to tighten things up a bit for less money, use some oil and coffee grounds to create a homemade cellulite buster similar to the creams found in stores.
2. Hair Energizer
For dark hair, coffee grounds can provide your locks with energy and give them a more radiant look. Before shampooing, exfoliate wet hair with a handful of coffee grounds, then rinse thoroughly. The grounds will remove any build up left over from hair products and leave your locks glossy and smooth.
3. Under Eye Bag Remover
Coffee does have a habit of giving you a morning boost, so using the grounds to combat dark under-eye bags doesn’t seem like much of a stretch. Mix some coffee grounds with a little bit of olive oil to help restore the look of the skin under your eyes.
4. Odor Neutralizer
Refrigerators are often full of many different types of foods, and the mix can easily get a little smelly. Keeping a cup of coffee grounds in the fridge will help to neutralize odors.
Coffee grounds can act as a great fertilizer, because they are rich in nutrients such as nitrogen and potassium. Use them to help give your plants a boost!
6. Flea Remover
If your dog has fleas, use moist coffee grounds and massage them into your dog’s fur. It will act as a natural flea remover, and leave your dog smelling great!
7. Wasp Repellent
If you have a wasp problem at home, coffee grounds can help. Place some in a fire-safe jar and light it to create steam/condensation that will help to repel wasps.
8. Garden Safe Keeper
If you’re having problems in your garden with ants, slugs or snails, spread some coffee grounds on top of the soil. The strong smell is enough to deter them from your plants!
