APPARENTLY, coffee grounds have more uses than just making your morning pick-me-up.
You can use coffee grounds to solve several kitchen issues, including deodorizing your fridge and cleaning your pans, a cleaning expert revealed.
TikTok account Problem Solved revealed that, instead of buying baking soda boxes to get rid of the musty smell in your fridge, you can place your used ground coffee grounds to get rid of the stink.
“This is a fun little swap to save you money,” he revealed.
“If you have some pots and pans that could use a little extra TLC, reach for those used grounds,” he said.
“You just need a spoonful and a little dish soap. Those coffee grounds are a mild abrasive so it’ll help scrub away that caked-on debris.”
He added that the coffee grounds are better because they won’t scratch your pans. However, he warned to only use a spoonful because any more could actually clog your sink.
But those same coffee grounds can actually get stuck inside your coffee machine if you don’t know how to properly clean it.
In fact, you’ve most likely been cleaning it wrong this whole time.
“It’s easy and cheap with just denture tablets. These things are super handy to clean way more than just dentures,” he revealed in his video.
“Fill the water tank up and add one or two tablets, then let those completely dissolve.
“Denture tablets are going to be great to remove bacteria from the inside of your coffee machine and descale.
“Traditional cleaning kits can be kinda expensive but these denture tablets are dirt cheap.”
He then revealed that this hack works for both traditional and single-serve machines.
“Then, run your coffee maker like normal – without coffee, of course. Run the machine with the denture tablets until the reservoir is empty.”
You’ll want to then pour out the water and clean the reservoir and coffee pot before repeating the process once again WITHOUT the denture tablets.
“Once the water runs clear, you’re ready for a fresh brew.”
