Coffee Can Cure Your Stinky Foot Odor
The Atlas Performance Dress Sock can rid your stinky foot odor and it uses carbonized coffee which has been reclaimed from common coffee roasters and shops. It is then processed through a pharmaceutical process to remove the oils in the coffee, then it is infused into recycled polyester yarns. The odor molecules which are made-up of carbon are very strongly attracted to the carbonized coffee, which then imprisons the stinky odors until it’s time to put the socks in the wash.

Grow Mushrooms Easier With Coffee Grounds
Growing your own mushrooms can be quite a tricky process. Mushroom farming needs significant pasteurisation equipment and climatic control.

Coffee grounds are automatically pasteurized by the actual brewing process, so coffee acts as a convenient, affordable substitution. Within only a few weeks, you can be enjoying your mushrooms at a fraction of the cost from the grocery store.
Coffee Can Be Used As Mulch
Coffee is great for your yard as a mulch material. Just add the coffee grounds directly to the soil, which contains some acid and will break down the sediment of the water. Breaking down this sediment allows the water to seep deeper into the ground which gives excellent care for your lawn. It also helps stop erosion of your soil and keeps the water from evaporating too quickly. You will have a great looking lawn in no time.
Coffee Is Used To Trap Roaches
Roaches are very attracted to coffee grounds. You put coffee grounds into a large open coffee can outside your home filled with about 2-3 inches or so of the coffee grounds. Place a wooden ruler or stick angled from the top of the coffee can to the ground as to form a ramp for the roaches to climb up on. Go back and check the can in about two or three days and it will most likely be filled with roaches. The trick is the roaches the are highly attracted to the coffee grounds in the can, but they cannot climb out once inside, they are trapped for some odd reason. Just give it a try it does work!
