5 Things to Do with Coffee Grounds


Lots of products in our homes have unconventional uses. 

Coffee Grounds have many uses that can help you in your daily life. (Besides waking you up in the morning! lol)







  1. Before you clean out the fireplace, sprinkle wet coffee grounds on the ashes. They will be easier to remove and dust wont fly up!

  2. Get rid of the smell of spoiled food in the freezer. Place used or fresh coffee grounds in a few bowls and leave it overnight.

  3. Old coffee grounds are chock-full of nutrients that your acidic-loving plants crave. Save them to fertilize rosebushes, azaleas, rhododendrons, evergreens, and camellias. So don’t throw them out! Add them to your plants! 

  4. Cats will not venture into your gardens if you use orange peels and coffee grounds in them.

  5. Make your own cellulite cream! Mix 1/4 cup of water, used coffee grounds with 1 teaspoon of oil. (olive, almond, walnut or massage oil. ) Stand on newspaper in the bathtub. Apply mixture in your cellulite areas and then wrap in plastic wrap. Leave on for 5 minutes. Take off the plastic wrap and brush off loose grounds.  Take up the grounds with the newspaper and than shower in warm water. Repeat twice a week.

beckUse your old glass bottles from your beer, pop bottles etc.

10 #DIY Tips And Tricks To Help Make Your Life Easier




Here is a list of 10 DIY tips and tricks to make your life easier!

               1. To preheat pizza without getting the crust soggy. Place piece of pizza in a non-stick skillet and heat on low until warm.


                2.  Divide leftover soup into muffin tins. Makes a perfect individual servings that you can just pop out and heat whenever you want them.



                 3. Need to hang a picture but there is nothing on the back to hang it from?  Take a tab from a soda can and attach it to the frame with a screw and hang the picture.



                4.Use a Lazy Susan in your fridge to organize your condiments. This will keep things from getting lost in the back of your fridge

                5. Add a tablespoon of vanilla extract to your paint. (1 tablespoon per gallon) It will not affect the paint but will mask the paint fumes and have your home smelling like vanilla.

                6. Tired of stopping at every floor every time you use the elevator? Hold the close door button and hold it while pressing your floor number. This will allow you to skip all floors and go right to yours.



                 7. Remove scruff marks on your floors with a dry tennis ball.

                 8. When packing liquids for your trip, (shampoo, lotion etc. ) screw lid off and place a piece of wrap plastic over the opening and screw lid back on. The plastic wrap will keep the liquid from spilling even if the lid pops open.

                9.  Rubbing butter at the edge of brick cheese will seal it and prevent it from molding.

               10. When cutting veggies or meat for recipes, use a pizza cutter. It will save more time then using a knife.

I found this was a easier way to get rid of them.

What You Need:

  • glass or cup

  • Rubber Band

  • Plastic Baggie (like a sandwich bag)

  • Scissors

  • Apple Cider Vinegar


  1. Pour about an inch of Apple Cider Vinegar in the glass.

  3. Use a rubber band to secure it on the glass.

  4. Place glass in an area that has a lot of fruit flies.

Also to prevent fruit flies try these tips:

  • Dispose of any rotting fruit & vegetables

  • Empty and clean recycling cans

  • Take any compost scraps outside

  • Replace old sponges , mops or dishrags

  • Check potato and onion bins (check if soft)

  • Fix slow drains.
