    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.

    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.
