Coffee can perk up dirty kitchen

Freshen kitchen drains by pouring in a mixture of used coffee grounds and boiling water.

Akron Beacon Journal

Coffee can do more than wake you in the morning.

Here are some other uses suggested by online retailer Coffee.org:

— Remove odors from your hands from cooking with foods such as garlic or fish by washing your hands and then rubbing a few coffee beans in them.

— Freshen kitchen drains by pouring in a mixture of used coffee grounds and boiling water.

— Combine used coffee grounds with a little water to create a cleaning paste for stain-resistant surfaces such as greasy kitchen surfaces.

— Sprinkle used coffee grounds on the soil around acid-loving plants, or add the grounds to your compost pile.

— Suck on a coffee bean to freshen your breath.
