We all know that freshly brewed coffee is a magical smell but many do not know that those same glorious grounds due double duty as odor absorbers. Both brewed and fresh grounds absorb odor. I like to make small oder eaters out of my used grounds and throw them in the back of the fridge or freezer. To make a quick absorber, you’ll need grounds, a porous container or bowl (personally, I prefer to wrap mine to prevent against accidental spillage), and a pice of twine or rope. If you are looking to replace a scent, you may want to use a pleasant smelling flavored coffee, such as french vanilla.
Step 1: Let your grounds drain on a piece of paper towel. If the grounds are two wet, excess water will seep through your pouch
Step 2: Cut a small piece of cheesecloth or nylon. Old socks also work
Step 3: Cut a piece of twine or rope or grab an elastic band
Step 4: Pour the coffee grounds onto the piece of cheese cloth or into the sock/ nylon
Step 5: Tie up your pouch!
