Hi there! It’s Wendy. Your resident queen of repurposing. You know I’m always looking for ways to give things a second life. And one thing I love as much as reusing things…is coffee. Oh sweet coffee. If only our coffee intake counted as water consumption. I’d be the most hydrated person on the planet! But throwing away those coffee grounds everyday? I found myself wondering if I could reuse those little brown crystals of happiness for something other than waking me up in the morning. As it turns out, there are lots of ways to reuse coffee grounds. From pest-deterring to skin-softening, there are so many things that can be done with old coffee grounds. Now THAT is incentive to clean out those little K-Cups. And bonus….cleaning them out means you can recycle them as well.
And if you’re a tea-drinker, well there are lots of things you can do with your used tea as well. Some things you can leave the tea in the bag for, others require loose-leaf tea. If that’s the case, you can just open the bag and lay the leaves out to dry. Careful though, tea leaves stain so don’t do this on a delicate surface.
So here you go…9 things you can do with used tea leaves and coffee grounds.
