  1. Use coffee grounds as plant food. Dilute your leftover coffee grounds to make your very own homemade plant food. To make, mix one part leftover coffee grounds with four parts cool water, and water your plants once every other week.
  2. Touch up furniture and other wood scratches with grounds and a cotton swab. It’s an easy, inexpensive way to restore your furnishings.
  3. Throw coffee grounds on ashes before cleaning out the fireplace to reduce the spread of dust.
  4. Use coffee grounds to dye clothing or paper.
