Coffee as an exfoliant, flea guard, and furniture’s friend?

Most people don’t realize it, but your daily cup of Joe can actually do a lot more than give you the energy to start the day! So before you throw away those used coffee grounds, you should see just how versatile they are. Coffee grounds can be used as a healthy and inexpensive exfoliant. Rather than use a gel-based scrub which includes various chemicals, coffee grounds are a great natural exfoliant that will clear up your skin, and they even remove oils from your pores. This ground coffee rub can also be implemented into the care for your pets. Fleas loathe coffee, and if your pet has recently been infested, rubbing the grounds through the fur after bathing them can drive out all the little critters. While using coffee remains is excellent for the skin, it is also a valuable remedy for daily scuffs and damages to your dark wood furniture. Making a simple coffee ground and water paste can bring scuffed wood back to its original hue, and you don’t need to waste money on brand name polishes. Finally, mixing your daily coffee grounds with warm coconut oil and massaging it on the body acts as a topical treatment that has been shown to reduce the appearance of cellulite on the body. This easy mixture is a great moisturizer and breaks down fats while increasing blood flow. To learn more uses of coffee grounds just click here
