General Coffee can help with odors Coffee grounds

Got smells? Did you know that the makings of your daily cup of joe can help you get rid of minor odors that keep your home, apartment or business from being nose-friendly?

Coffee grounds or ground up coffee, before it becomes drinkable, can help you with deodorization of a number of different smells. For example, if someone left something in the refrigerator and then forgot about it for a month, a nasty smell might be the result. Simply grind up some coffee and leave several bowls in the fridge. The odor will be absorbed within a few hours or a day. (Do not use these grounds for making your next cup of coffee, however!) Refrigerator smells are a common problem in offices and the workplace, where busy minds might go out to lunch and forget they brought a lunch that morning. Grounds can also be left in the freezer overnight, after a freezer failure, to absorb the food smells.

Coffee grounds can also be rubbed on your hands to eliminate the smell of onions and garlic after a session of cutting during dinner preparation. Cooks will find this tip very helpful on a daily basis.

The grounds from coffee might even help neutralize the smell of dead animals as well as pet urine smells. Some people have put a dish of coffee grounds in the bathroom to help with deodorization.

You might want to keep a bag of the grounds in your cooler when camping or going to a big game. Sports enthusiasts can fill a sock with grounds and leave it in the cooler.

Another odor that coffee grounds can help with is that from ashes in a fireplace. They help neutralize the burnt smell as well as make cleanup of the ashes easier.
