Two-Ingredient Hand Scrub for Gardeners


I set out to make an all natural body scrub and found out just how well this scrub worked to clean my dirty hands after digging around in the garden.

I don't use gloves when I garden unless I'm going to be working around poison ivy so needless to say my hands get really dirty when I'm out in the yard.

I mixed up a batch of recycled coffee grounds (grounds I saved from daily coffee) and added this to some slightly softened coconut oil to use as a body scrub in the shower.

The result was this awesome scrub that works wonders in getting my dirty hands clean. There's just enough grit to scrub away the grime and the coconut oil leaves my hands feeling smooth and not dry.

    You can get a small strainer like what is used for kitchen sinks.

    I wouldn't think that oil in the sinks and/or tubs would be a great idea!
