Coffee has an extended subsistence and as it was first learned by Ethiopians, it has been utilized in several methods, besides being a make better of liquid power.

5 Ways to Use

  1. Get rid of ants
  2. Remove furniture scratches
  3. Avoid expensive vet bills
  4. Use coffee as a natural deodorizer
  5. Fertilize your garden or plants

In an earlier thread: Caffeine In Coffee, crawlercoffee stated:

This Post is not for generate visits to linked website.... i only try to get some more ideas which i did not know from this forum experts... and also my question not only for trying to show how much i know..

Hmmm....

based on your new thread "Methods to Utilize Coffee Other Than Drinking It," I decided to Google, "uses for coffee other than drinking" and received over 39 million hits. So, what is your goal of this current thread:
A - try to get some more ideas which you did not know from this forum's experts
B - not to try to show how much you know..
C - not to generate visits to the linked website
If you are genuinely here to learn (choice "A" above) I suggest you do more reading and use the search function to see if there is already information that you are trying to learn before posting. I realize that English is not your first language, but you are going to alienate the group with these posts and cause other problems here if the pattern of posting what appear to be thinly disguised attempts to generate traffic. Posting a personal link in the signature is one thing, and it is allowed here, but using fairly valueless posts in order to do it has the potential of getting you a digital time-out or banned.

And now we know why I am not a mod here.....

Yeah, but Randy he gave me such an excellent idea.  It was the natural deodorizer one.  I have just ground up 2 pounds of some of the finest 100% kona, and have applied it to 2 of our carpets.  Smells great.    After letting it sit a bit I will let our dogs in the room.  I bet a couple hours after that their systems will be really clean as a whistle.  Whats leftover from that (ahem) I will use to fertilize our flower patch ...

Don't know about the ants, however.  That's a tough one.

...CRAP! I didn't read the entire article and rubbed some fine-ground Colombian into my armpits. <|:-0

And the ant thing.. After a day of being exposed to some Robusta, you wouldn't believe just how fast those six little legs of theirs can get them running across the kitchen floor. Simply amazing!

Ah sounds like you're trying to avoid those pesky vet bills

3. Avoid expensive vet bills

Kidding aside, something I didn't know and learned a couple years ago is that smelling coffee beans is a great "palate" cleanser of sorts for your nose when smelling things.

There's one in every group who will drop in and take a perfectly useless thread and add some valuable information to mess things up...   ;-)

Apparently you can use old coffee grounds to get rid of lice and ticks etc as well...

Oh, and you can also use it to fix scratches in wood furniture...

You can use it to help make your walkway less slippery in the winter (but then, you need to deal with the coffee grounds being dragged into the house on boots...)

So, yes, many uses for coffee... Other than drinking it I suppose...

How did you get him into your grinder? Did he gum up the burrs?
