#3. Grounds can also bring your dull wooden furniture back to life.

All you need to do is rub some grounds gently against any scratch marks you see in your wooden chair, cabinet, or table. It's that simple! Plus, it'll remove any unsightly discoloration in the process, which is a major bonus.

#4. If you've got a green thumb and like to plant your own carrots, then make sure to use coffee grounds next time.

Adding grounds to the soil can help your carrots grow a whole lot faster. Just make sure not to use freshly brewed grounds as they need time to break down into the compost in order for them to work their magic.

#5. If you hate cleaning pans full of grit, then try scrubbing with some coffee grounds.

But be careful not to use them on pans that stain easily because grounds are very abrasive and could wind up scratching the surface while getting rid of the grit that ended up caked on the bottom of the pan.
