Uses for Leftover Coffee

1.) Stain wood. Dab a cloth in coffee and run it over scratches in your wood furniture or hardwood floor. The coffee will stain the scratch and help blend it in. You can also mix it with a little vinegar and warm water.

2.) Soak a dirty grill – the acid in the coffee will help cut through the grease on your grill and make cleaning easier.

3.) Make iced coffee – Store leftover coffee in a pitcher in your refrigerator and make coffee ice cubes so your drink will not get diluted.

4.) Add a little bit to your oatmeal instead of milk for a stronger flavor

5.) Add a little to your chili for a warm flavor. I make it in the crockpot and add about a quarter cup. You can find recipes that recommend adding even more.

6.) Add it to chocolate cake or brownies recipes to replace some of the liquid in the recipe for a strong delicious flavor.
