Coffee is a great odor eater. Place some beans and a fake tealight in a candle holder and use it to deodorize places like bathrooms, family rooms, offices, etc.

Mix 1 Tablespoon Dawn with your coffee grounds to create an abrasive cleaner. Use it to scrub up cooktops, dry food on counters, and more. Be careful if you have a porous surface counter as coffee can stain.

Use the multipurpose cleaner to get baked-on food off of pots, pans, and dishes.

You might find a little extra still in the pan. So scoop 1 Tablespoon of the mixture into the pot without adding water. Use a scrub brush and scrub up the remaining burnt-on substance.

Rinse out and your pan will be clean.
