Hot Tip: Use Coffee Grounds To Cover Furniture Scratches via @renest

Mike Lieberman from 365 Ways To Go Green shows us how to apply used coffee grounds with a cotton swab to help cover those unsightly scratches. This is a perfect trick for those with medium-dark furniture as the coffee is slightly darker than the walnut oil we had been using previously. We would suggest that after the application, you let the grounds sit for 5-10 minutes before buffing things with a cotton rag to ensure you won't end up with coffee pants next time you sit down — because no one will believe you that it's coffee and not something else. Do you have a great furniture fix? Let us know below! Via: 365 Ways To Go Green (Image: Mike Lieberman . Originally published 2010-06-07)
