For the daily coffee drinkers: this is how you can reuse coffee grounds

Must Try

Anyone who enjoys a cup of coffee every day is left with a portion of coffee grounds with almost every brewing method. Usually we just throw that away, but why should we?

There are plenty of ways to reuse your coffee grounds!

This is how you can reuse coffee grounds

1. Use it to neutralize odors in your fridge

Odors in your fridge are inevitable. Still, there are plenty of ways to neutralize strong odors, including using coffee grounds. This is due to the nitrogen present in coffee grounds, a substance that reduces the intensity of odors.

How does it work? All you have to do is place a bowl of used coffee grounds in the corner of your refrigerator. The worst odors will be neutralized in this way. Note: there is a good chance that everything will smell a bit like coffee. The question is whether you think that is a problem or not. This method also works in your car.

2. Grow your own oyster mushrooms with coffee grounds

Growing oyster mushrooms yourself: how much fun would that be? Apparently it is easy with the help of coffee grounds. A complete guide to growing oyster mushrooms on coffee grounds can be found here.

You understand: in our minds we are already harvesting our mushrooms (to make a mushroom shawarma out of it!)… Delicious!

3. Use it to compost

Coffee grounds contain many nutrients (such as the aforementioned nitrogen, but also potassium, phosphorus and magnesium) that are beneficial for fertile compost. If you are already composting, simply throw your coffee grounds with the rest of your compost. If not, you could collect the leftover coffee grounds and consider composting. After all, it is and remains a very good destination for part of your kitchen waste.

4. Use it to clean pans

Coffee grounds naturally have a grainy, abrasive structure. This makes it an excellent means for removing stubborn stains. To do this, simply place a few teaspoons of ground coffee in the bottom of your pan and scrub gently with a cloth or sponge. Life hack guys!

Can you reuse coffee grounds to make coffee?

Finally, you may be wondering whether you can also reuse coffee grounds to simply make coffee again. In theory this works, but in practice it is not recommended. This is mainly because the quality of the taste is lost. So it is better to always use a fresh portion of coffee to make coffee, because you now know how to use that coffee grounds in other ways…
