So I’ve been a terrible blogger lately. On a positive note, I was promoted to Marketing Director at work, but that means I’ve increased my work load a bit. To make up for it, I’ll be posting soon my super amazing recipe for Red Velvet Cake, courtesy of Bakerella, with a few of my own minor tweaks.
In lieu of my increased workload, I thought I’d share with you some other amazing uses and tips for . . . COFFEE!
Cleaning Supply – use a handful of coffee grounds instead of abrasive cleaners when scrubbing pots and pans. Also works for cleaning old food off dishes–though do not use on materials that might be absorbent or porous–you’ll end up with brown stains!
Deodorizer – place grounds in a jar or dish to absorb odors from refrigerators and freezers. Smelly kids? Leave a dish of coffee grounds out to absorb odors in the room. Clean & Proper bonus: rub on hands to remove food odors after cooking.
Fixer-Upper – Use to cover up scratches in furniture, specifically darker woods. Dab a strong solution of coffee on the scratch and voilà!
