11. Doggie Deodorizer

After washing your dog with his regular shampoo, rub in 1 or 2 cups of coffee grounds (depending on the size of your dog) into his fur, then rinse well. This will kill fleas and make the fur super soft after it dries.


12. Gardeners/Fisherman’s Soap

Want to get rid of those smelly, dirty hands? Make your own gardeners or fisherman’s soap by melting a bar of glycerin soap and adding about 1/3 of a cup of coffee grounds. Reshape or pour into a mold as it cools. This is great for removing dirt and stinky smells all at the same time.


13. Natural Cellulite Treatment

Cellulite has a dozen causes, and even more “treatments”. Don’t bother buying those expensive cellulite treatments from your drug store, just use coffee grounds. Mix some coffee ground with warm water and scrub the problem areas for about 10 minutes twice a week. This will take about 4 weeks before you see the benefits, but you will see them, this treatment really does work!


14. Clean Out Your Fireplace

Ok, so coffee grounds aren’t going to do all the work, but they will make things easier and less messy. Scatter some used coffee grounds over the ashes to help weigh them down and stop those huge dust clouds that happen when you remove the old ashes. Keeping down the dust should help stop you from having to dust everything in the room.


15. Exfoliate the Skin

Coffee ground make a great body scrub. Mix some coffee grounds with some coconut oil and a touch of water, and then scrub your body from head to toe to remove all those dead skin cells. Be sure to pay special attention to your feet! This is a great way to get rid of callouses and dead skin.
