Every morning, before going to work, we drink our usual coffee with its aroma permeating the home and relaxing with its taste, but after this pleasant experience, what do we do with the waste?
Most consumers dispose of coffee waste in organic waste bags. However, this is not the only ecological way to take advantage of it in everyday life. Here we explain how to reuse the coffee waste environmentally friendly.
How to reuse coffee waste
1- Plants’ Fertilizer
Leftover coffee is an excellent fertilizer for plants, providing nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus. If you have a small crop, you can spread the coffee on the ground or mix it with the irrigation water for the garden.
2. Helps reduce bad smells from the fridge and cupboard
Coffee is an excellent product to eliminate bad odors in the fridge and the cupboard. Place the coffee waste in an uncovered container to eliminate unpleasant odors.
3. Eliminates strong odors from the hands
Some odors remain impregnated in the hands for a long time, for example: garlic, onion, or fish. Wash your hands with soap and water, place the leftover coffee on your hands, and rub and rinse with plenty of water.
4. Clean residue from pans and oven trays
After cooking, there are almost always traces of fat and food adhering to the pan and oven trays. Strong products are needed to remove these leftovers because soap is not enough. Coffee grounds are quite useful for eliminating residue stuck in kitchen utensils.
5. Repels ants and other insects
Prepare a small bag with coffee waste and place it at strategic points to keep insects away without having to use insecticides or pesticides. The coffee grounds keep away many insects and snails that cannot stand the aroma of this product.
