There’s a little thing called coffee which we all seem to know and love. It wakes us up in the morning…in the afternoon…at night…after a Friday evening that was a little too fun…during a conference at work that’s just a little to monotonous. It kisses our taste buds with with each sip of its robust deliciousness and hugs the soul with its warm aroma. While we love coffee for all that sweet brown liquid provides, don’t leave out the coffee grounds – those little helpers have quite a few household uses you don’t want to miss out on.
Some of those house plants looking a little tired? All they need is a little energy boost! Mix in some of those old coffee grounds with the plant’s soil for extra fertilization assistance.

Fleas are inevitably going to be a pesky problem for your pet at some point. If you aren’t into using chemicals to treat the problem, try combing some coffee grounds thru your pet’s fut next bath-time – it’s said to repel those icky fleas.
Ants. Summer’s common and unwanted house guest. Try sprinkling coffee grounds where the ants seem to be congregating to deter them and send them packing. This is especially great if you have young children and you don’t want those pesticides used in the home.
