from Extraordinary Uses for Ordinary Things

Freshen your breath
What to do when you’re all out of breath mints? Just suck on a coffee bean for a while and your mouth will smell clean and fresh again.

Remove foul odor from hands
If your hands smell of garlic, fish or other strong foods you’ve been handling, a few coffee beans may be all you need to get rid of the odor. Put the beans in your hands and rub them together. The oil released from the coffee beans will absorb the foul smell. When the odor is gone, wash your hands in warm, soapy water.

Fill a beanbag
They don’t call them beanbags for nothing. Coffee beans are ideal as beanbag filler, but with the price of coffee these days, it’s a good idea to wait for a sale.
