Dozens of pounds of coffee waste are thrown away every day, even though it is known to have multiple uses. Especially now that there is a possible increase in the price of grain, it is better to take advantage of each ounce, and get the most out of the waste. To know more tips how to reuse coffee powder just find here at

Here we tell you other uses that you can give the coffee eraser: 

In the fridge 
If you do not have baking powder on hand which is one of the quintessential odour eliminators, do not worry. You can also eliminate odours in the fridge by placing a little coffee eraser in an uncovered cup. The flour must absorb that which bothers your nose.

In your hands 
Garlic, onion, salmon, - there are some great ingredients to cook but if hours later your hands retain that aroma, the thing changes. To get rid of those unpleasant odours rub your hands with coffee residue, including under your nails and then rinse with warm water.

In the rest of your skin 
Cellulite creams almost always have one ingredient in common: caffeine, since it supposedly improves or speeds up the metabolism. A good solution is to collect coffee residues and mix them with coconut oil or olive oil. With that mixture rubs with circular movements for a few minutes on the affected areas. Then you rinse it.

In your home garden or patio 
The coffee eraser is one of the favourite ingredients as natural fertilizer. It can be used directly on the ground in those plants that require a higher level of acid such as hydrangeas or for growing carrots, mushrooms or radishes. If you have a little wilted tree, throw it also erased coffee to the ground and water it. It is understood that it also helps to grow the grass if it is sprinkled on it. As if that were not enough, it also helps to move the cats away so they do not use the pots to relieve themselves.

In your hair 
Coffee can add not only shine but also colour to your hair. Strain one or two cups of strong coffee and put it to cool. You wash your hair and then you put your coffee in your hair and leave it for 20 minutes. Then you rinse it and put on the conditioner as usual. You can do it once a week.

If you located the anthill, sprinkle it with coffee residue to help it disappear.

In your kitchen
The coffee is slightly abrasive and acidic, which makes it ideal for cleaning surfaces such as counter to the kitchen, sinks or sinks, among others. Use the waste alone or mix it with a little soap to wash dishes and clean.

In your pots
Do your pots have grease and accumulated grease? Coffee residues can help you. Remove the strong grease from pans and containers by rubbing them with coffee grounds, mixed with soap. Of course, then rinse.

My Monsoon Love Hate Love Story

Last year, almost the same time, I packed every belonging of mine and landed to a place which is close to my heart. With bag and baggage, my family moved from Delhi to Lucknow. It was monsoon time when I came here and thank god I witnessed a prosperous rain. Lucknow, though smaller compared to Delhi, is a place I distinguish since childhood. The city of Nawabs is believed as the happiest city in India. As our move was well calculated, my husband and I made sure to have all those things in our lives that I missed being in Delhi. A bigger house (that we can afford), green surroundings, street food access that we missed in Delhi and people who talk in our native tongue.

The Hate Story

I hated the rain when I was in Delhi. My house was in a busy lane of a crowded Delhi locality, and I was living on the second floor of the building. Hence neither I had easy access to the road, nor to terrace. When it rained, I was forced to stay inside. Roads used to get sunk even after the rain of half an…

K For Kalpasi - An Unknown Treasure

Every region in India uses spices to make their local food extraordinary. It is only a matter of spices that change the taste of the same Shambhar in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and in north India. We all make Chole but the game of spices do something to what we relish as famous Panjabi Chole.  It is all about the little nuances that go into creating a dish from ordinary to exceptional.

A handful of spices always remain in our kitchens and we know their unique flavors. However, there are a number of spices are little unheard-of. While these form an essential part of a few local innate cuisines in some part of India, the rest of India does not know much about them. O…

The Tradition of Respecting and Celebrating Food

A story to begin with

After winning the great battle of kurukshetra, Yudhisthira was now king of Hastinapur. And then one day, all of sudden Krishna went to Yudhishithira and started saying in urgency "dadasvannam dadasvannam dadasvannam yudhisthira (“Give food! Give food! Give food! Yudhisthira). As the great battle had affected everyone in the country, food was the first way to start giving relief to the suffering countrymen.  As suggested by Krishna, yudhisthira then organized the great asvamedha-yajna. Mahabharata records an extraordinary celebration of distributing food as a part of the sacred year-long rites and rituals.

Our food heritage
