What do you do with your coffee grounds?

We have been putting our used coffee grounds in our compost or the planting bed outside our kitchen door for years. Looking online, we have found a number of websites that offer many other ways to utilize coffee grounds. Here are 3 of our favorites:

  1. Composting for later. This is our primary way of re-purposing coffee grounds – and we have learned that it does add good nutrients to the composting material.
  2. Repelling insects and pests. New information for us! We are going to add this to our potted plants on the front porch and continue to toss on the planting bed outside our kitchen.
  3. Neutralizing odors. We have done this forever. Moving quite a bit in our adult lives, we learned that putting coffee grounds in a sock inside the refrigerator and freezer compartments will prevent odors from the appliance being closed up for some time.
