Smells you could do without
The deodorizing effect of used coffee grounds can be used in a variety of ‘high scent’ environments:
- Your refrigerator – no need for baking soda. Just fill a cheese cloth with dry grounds and leave the bag in the refrigerator.
- Your outdoor garbage can/dumpster – fill some old tights with dry grounds and hang them inside the cans: instant air freshener.
- Cooking smells on your hands – when you cut up onions or garlic, there is little that can remove that powerful smell. Take some grounds, add a little water and rub it into your hands. Rinse with cool water and you’re back to smelling like you.
- Stinky shoes – put dry grounds in a cheesecloth and place them in the shoes at night. By morning, you and your shoes should be ready to start the day.
