Last tip with coffee grounds is to make a DIY detergent for the whole house! Since they are perfect in any environment, why not use them in our everyday life and make the most of their cleaning properties? Let’s see together now how to make this natural detergent!
Ingredients and process
Let’s start with the ingredients, they are few and you surely have them at home!
- 1 loaf of organic Soap (or 1 cup of liquid soap)
- 2 tablespoons of baking soda
- 5 tablespoons of coffee grounds
Melt the cake in a double boiler so that the pans are not damaged and the smell does not remain impregnated inside. Once melted, first add the baking soda and then the previously dried grounds. Stir vigorously; you should obtain a thick mixture to be stored in a bottle of your choice. In case the mixture is too thick, you can add a little water so that it becomes fluid. That’s it, now all you have to do is make use of it all over the house!
Do not use coffee grounds if you have an allergy or hypersensitivity. Also remember that all methods should be tried first in unseen corners.
