Basically, anything you want… But it’s worth saying more because the Chronic team wants to open up their coffee grounds recycling files, the famous guide of good practices. Of course, the educational virtues of this little note will tell you a little more about the circular economy. You know the famous “what comes from the earth goes back to earth”, something like that. That said, don’t take that literally if you drink Chronic coffee but you don’t use composting toilets.
Nevertheless, you will find lots of nice little tips, fun and sometimes crazy. But like us, you’ll be able to say, “I drink good Chronic coffee and I reuse the grounds…” This time… Respect.pect.

For our friend(s) the plants
Keep pests away
Plant destroyers, big invaders of your habitat, I speak of course about pests, not your spouse…
To get rid of it, it is extremely simple and effective: just set out Chronic coffee grounds around the items you cherish. “I always talk about your flowers, huh?” Pests and pets do not support this odor and will swarm elsewhere.
We call it transferring your pests to your neighbor …
You just scared off the pests from your garden. Good. And now, gardeners and market grocers in the neighborhood will send you fruits and vegetables thank to the compost mixed with Chronic coffee grounds.
Why? Because coffee grounds provide nitrogen which is very useful to your plants’ growth.
To make good compost, you need: leftover food, peelings, plants of every type (avoid capsules ;-)) in a compost bin sprinkled with the famous Chronic coffee grounds. And voila
Chronic. The good pipes…
Unclogging the hole
Unclogging all the pipes, I say “all”, dear lady, dear sir, thanks to Chronic coffee grounds.
With a mixture of coffee grounds, boiling water and a little dishwashing liquid, you can unclog the pipes of your bathroom and kitchen.
To use, also, as a preventive treatment to prevent your sink from getting clogged with fat leftover food.
A great deodorant
You just put your hands in your hair right after having cooked with garlic or onion or after having stuffed them anywhere. (The cause of the odors isn’t the issue) You just need Chronic coffee grounds to rub your hands and get rid of the smell. Voila, saved!!!!
It’s exactly the same procedure to deodorize your fridge: a bowl and Chronic coffee grounds. The grounds’ effectiveness lasts about 2 weeks. That old smelly cheese just needs to keep.
Are the smells coming back? Do you have any more Chronic coffee grounds? No? Then another box awaits you in our e-shop.
NB: With a duty to honesty, we must say that all this advice also works with coffee grounds other than Chronic, but we can’t guarantee the same result :).
