  1. I love this post! I drink quite a bit of coffee and always felt badly about throwing away those grounds. I have one more use for you to add to your collection. We bought a used car that smelled of cigarette smoke. We put coffee grounds in the car and it eliminated the smell. It takes a few days, but it works!
