Step 9: Cleaning abrasive

Picture of cleaning abrasive
Used coffee grounds can be used as a cleaning abrasive. Simply save up your coffee grounds and scoop some into your next dirty pot or pan before hand washing, the absorbent grounds are perfect for greasy pans and the small jegged edges of each ground helps in cleaning even the grossest of dishware.

Very cool. I didn't know about this one. Thank you.
This concept (step 9) can also be applied to create a heavy duty hand scrub! If you find your hands all greased up after a motor project, or have specs of paint after a paint job, stay away from those cleaning chemicals! Just use regular hand soap and a pinch of coffee grounds and scrub away!
