Rose Platter for Using up your Coffee Grounds!
Coffee grounds can and must be composted along with your vegetable peels, eggshells etc. but they should be sugarless.
Plant Pick-me-up: Your houseplants will freshen up with a light sprinkling of coffee grounds on top of the soil.
Odor eater: coffee grounds absorb odors, so they can be used to freshen up smelly places. Dry the grounds by spreading them out on a cookie sheet and leaving it in a warm oven. Then set a can of grounds in the refrigerator or sprinkle some in the cat box!
Dyeing for coffee: used coffee grounds will give you a warm brown dye for fabric or paper. Soak the grounds in water for an hour to get the best color, then filter carefully through a strainer lined with cloth. Try using a coffee tint on homemade stationery or use it to dye old lingerie a sexy shade of beige!
