    When I used to run into those things, we would put coffee grounds into a frying pan and heat it on the stove to mask the smell of a dead body in a house or apartment. Gross, but it does work. Probably would work for other evil smells as well

    chuck them in the compost heap helps make great compost, and will probably help to keep slugs away too.

    Yes coffee also supposed to keep away slugs eating your garden veggies. Haven't tried as yet....since i use instant coffee;)

    I remember starbucks were giving away used coffee grinds to use as fertilizer in your garden

    I tried it with onion smelling hands. only made my hands smell like coffee grounds and onions.
    I suppose, but doesn't really work.

    It's odd. But it works. If you do it with boiling water

    Why would it clear a clogged drain? I always learned NOT to pour grounds in the drain, because they'd clog it. I'm confused.

    If you've got really dirty hands, mix coffee grounds with soap and scrup. Hands get really soft and clean.

    Oh and i voted;)

    Cool! Thanks I will have to try this!
