Casa Quickie: Coffee Grinder Two-in-One Tip

If your coffee grinder is coated with coffee bean residue, or if it's suffering from dull blades, there's an easy solution. Grind up a cup of uncooked white rice in your coffee grinder. Not only will it clean the grinder, it will also sharpen its blades.

Wow. That's great to know. My mom and her boyfriend drink coffee whenever they can and they have one those grind-your-own-coffee things. So they could probably use this little tip before they decide to buy new blades or worse, buy a whole new machine.
