If you are an avid coffee drinker like us then you have used coffee grounds as we speak in your coffee pot. Well these coffee grounds have a lot of uses after they provide us with our delicious morning/afternoon/night cup of coffee. Lets check some of them out now.
We live on the edge of town and find ourselves with neighbors that have dogs and cats. Now the dogs we don’t mind because they don’t come into our yard and leave bombs in our flower beds and sleep in our tool shed. Cats on the other hand….well they go where they please. We all know that it is very difficult to keep cats out of the yard. So we found a few tips using used coffee grounds that can help keep those little furry creatures from leaving you surprises when you go to dig in your garden.
Simply mix the coffee grounds well with used orange peels and then spread them around the outside of your garden. Since cats dislike the smell of coffee, as well as any citrus smells, this mixture will drive them away to do their business elsewhere!
We are definitely going to start saving our coffee grounds and try this handy tip. We have about 5 neighbor cats that love to wander through our yard and play Kitty Fight Club on our back porch. I look forward to seeing how the coffee grounds/orange peels work! :)
