    2 paper cups



    1. On an upside down paper cup, label “Time Coffee Was Brewed.” Add an arrow pointing to the bottom of the cup.

    2. Create a clock around the rim of a second cup. Draw 24 equally spaced lines around the rim of the cup and number them with the hours of the day.

    3. Place the first cup on top of the second.

    4. When you make a new pot of coffee, rotate the arrow to the time on the clock.

    4. Eat grapefruit with your coffee to get a better caffeine rush.

    5. Pre-mix sugar into your milk bottle to save time making morning coffee.

    Mix two drops of peppermint essential oils, a 1/4 cup of warm water, and a 1/4 teaspoon of honey. Use a funnel to pour into a spray bottle.

    Mix hydrogen peroxide and baking soda together in a small container. Rub the paste onto your teeth for about 30 seconds, then rinse with water.

    9. Hide scratches in your wood floors with old coffee grounds.

    You can use coffee to hide scratches on dark wood or espresso finishes. Mix a small amount of grounds with warm water to make a paste, rub the paste over the scratch, and wipe it off with a towel. The grounds stain the wood, and make the scratch less noticeable.
