Clever uses for
Coffee Grounds –

1. Put damp grounds on top of ashes, in your fireplace, to minimize dust when you sweep out the hearth.

2. Dip a cotton swab into wet grounds and dab the mixture onto your furniture nicks to hide the scratches.

3. Coffee grounds are acidic and lower the pH of soil. Mix them into the dirt around the base of your hydrangea bushes for azure flowers.

4. Dump used grounds on the pavement for much needed traction on slippery, ice covered steps and paths.

5. Add one Tbsp fresh grounds to marinades and rubs to make meat less chewy and to impart a mild smokey flavor.
