You already have learned that coffee grounds act perfectly as odor absorbers of your foul-smelling sinks.

Perfect as Cleaners

Having to deal with hard to remove stains or dirt in some of the common home utensils like pots or casseroles is really tedious and annoying. I bet you always try to escape from this task and leave it for others in your household to finish.

This time, you don’t have to find cleaning these enormous stains difficult because your used coffee grounds can make that job easier for you. Coffee grounds are acidic and abrasive in nature. This property of coffee grounds allows them to similarly act as sand papers making surfaces of your utensils smooth and clean. You can simply do that by mixing those used grounds with a little water and using a rigid and firm brush to clean those stains away!
