Whether you brew coffee through a filter or brew coffee from a K-Cup, hang onto those used grounds! In the warmer months, I use them for my acid loving plants. Here in my kitchen this winter, my coffee grounds are used for exfoliating my dry and smelly hands.

I love using fresh garlic. However, I don't love the sticky residue it leaves on my hands and especially don't like the garlic smell on my fingers.
If you brew coffee through a filter, keep a container of used grounds near your kitchen sink. If you use K-Cups you could also toss them into a container.
Just dump some coffee grounds onto your hands and rub-a-dub-dub. No soap needed! You don't need much. Be careful not to clog your sink drain.

- I tend to get mold growth on my grounds when I save them. Any tips on how to avoid the fuzzy mold growing on the saved leftover grounds?
- Makes perfect sense for the odour problem . A challenge is that coffee grounds down the drain belabour the water waste management system. What are the pros and cons to your post having an alternate pic with a filter over the sink drain and those grounds then go into the compost?
