Dr. Oz: Use Coffee Grounds to Get Rid of Odors
Dr. Oz talked about several new uses for coffee grounds out there. Most people toss these out after making coffee, but others use it in more innovative ways. It turns out coffee grounds are great for getting rid of odors.
Dawn came by to talk about how she uses coffee grounds to get rid of odors on her hands. For instance, say you just chopped a bunch of garlic or onions. Your hands will be smelly and sometimes, soap isn’t enough. Dawn takes a handful of coffee grounds and uses them like soap. She just rubs them all over her hands under the water. As the coffee grounds get carried away, so do the odors.
Four people in the audience smelled Dawn’s hands after she chopped garlic and used the coffee grounds to clean them. All of them agreed it smelled good. Dr. Oz was worried it would smell like garlic in some coffee, but it turns out it really worked.
Dr. Oz: Coffee Grounds for Scrubbing Pans
Dana’s mother taught her to use leftover coffee grounds to scrub hard-to-clean pots and pans. She dumps the grounds on the pan, takes a soft cloth and wets it, and uses the soft cloth to rub the grounds into the pan. It’s not abrasive and it’s very natural. Dana said it’s also good because the coffee grounds act as an exfoliant of the hands. And as we’ve already established, they take away odors from your hands as well.
