Casa Quickie: Dealing with Ashes


Need something to do with your leftover coffeegrounds? Before you clean out the fireplace, carefully scatter wet coffee grounds over the ashes. This will help to keep the ash dust from billowing up and into your living room. You can also try the same technique when emptying out your wood stove. Afterwards, throw it all in your compost pile: Both ashes and coffee grounds are great amendments for your garden.
