That’s right – you can make PlayDough with your old coffee grounds. Why spend a couple of dollars buying expensive, factory-made PlayDough when you can make your own from stuff you were going to throw away? To make it, just take your old grounds and add a bunch of salt, some cream of tartar, some hot water, and some oil. It works great as long as you want to make only brown stuff. Get the details here.
Everybody knows that coffee is a main ingredient of most cellulite reducing creams. Why not smear your old coffee grounds on your thighs instead of paying for the designer stuff.

This has to work because it makes so much sense. Find out more here.
Make “Treasure Stones”

Get a Fake Tan
Coffee grounds are brown, and you want to be brown, so put 2 and 2 together. Rub those coffee grounds all over your body and let them go to work giving you that exotic tan that your friends will droll over. Did you just get back from St. Tropez? Only your barista knows for sure.
