    New Tip for Washing Hands

    My neighbor, a longtime Bersa owner and shooting companion told me today and had me demonstrate the following tip. When your hands are extremely dirty/oily generally cruddy. Lather them up well and add 1 teaspoonful of used coffee grounds. The cleaning is phenominal! The grounds are abrasive like coarse Lava soap and contain enough oils that the skin does not dry excessively. Try it, it's actually great.

    I've washed my hands with dirt, sand etc before for that reason. The abrasive action is what works. Final rinse with soap removes the easy grime. I never thought of using coffee grounds. We gather a lot of grounds but we toss them in the flower beds and mulch pile or use them to clean out the garbage disposal.

        Why? I've been doing it every day for years with no repercussions.

          Why not? Been doing it forever. Never had a problem. I've scoped my pipes twice before to find breaks from tree roots and never saw clogged or damaged pipes. Sometimes I followup coffee grounds with citrus peels for that fruity fresh. smell. When it's really in need of a good cleaning, I use ice cubes.

            Wait!... This isn't some "green" thing you are talking about is it? Not putting grounds down the disposal?

              Never EVER put coffe grounds in the disposal..... Ground is past tense for grind... You can't grind grounds cuz grounds have already been grinded.. If you try to grind grounds it will mess up the time warp continum big time and befor you know it Mason will start making sence and MT will go soft and AG will get crankie and PH will be nice and RC will move to California..... Never grind grounds...

                Crystal clear Mason. Thank you for the thorough explanation and the dangers to all mankind! I shall stop grinding already grinded ground grinds immediately.

                        I know you're not supposed to put coffee grounds down the drain if you have an aroebic septic system.

                          When I drink too much coffee I get aroebic heading to the bathroom.
