Recycle Your Coffee Grounds

Don't compost your old coffee grounds just yet. If you make coffee at home, recycle your grounds while simultaneously giving some TLC to your place.

You've had your morning coffee; now take your used filters and coffee grounds and set aside to dry.  Take your dried grounds and pour into shallow bowls to place in any area with an undesirable odor. Recommended spaces: 

  • Shoe closet
  • Supply closet
  • Bathroom
  • Areas with low ventilation 

Don't stop at your just your grounds, earth warrior. Take a few of your dried filters (I used Hario V60 unbleached paper filters) to create air fresheners. I pop these delights into my fridge to absorb any overwhelming scents and replace them after a month of use.
