There are many ways you can repurpose leftover coffee and coffee grounds and you should never simply throw them away. If making another delicious cup of coffee is out of the question, here are five alternative uses that will make you see coffee in a whole new light.

Smelly Fridge

Whenever you’re dealing with a smelly fridge, you can make a sachet of ground coffee and leave it inside your fridge because it can do a great job absorbing some of the strong food odors.

Proper Clean-Up

If you’re struggling to remove stuck-on food off the bottoms of your pots and pans, the coarse texture of coffee grounds could help you scrub them properly.

Sweet Treats

From tiramisu and muffins to cakes and bread, coffee can be used to take many desserts to the next level, and that’s one of the reasons why you should never pour it down the drain.

Tasty Meat

Coffee can also be used to elevate your hearty meat dishes because it can do a great job enhancing the flavor of the meat.

Coffee Cubes

If you enjoy iced coffee drinks, you can keep them cold for longer by pouring your leftover coffee in ice cube trays and making delicious coffee cubes.
