  1. They are good at masking odors due to the pleasing fragrance it emits but not ideal for removing odors.
    The steps for odor removal is as follows :
    Identify and Remove source of odor if possible.
    Try to seal off the residual odor if it is deemed too offensive for rapid release.
    Add Activated Charcoal, plain Charcoal is ok if you powder it into dust. Use a container.
    Wait, check everyday. Add new charcoal every week. See step 1 for advice if bored.
    When the smell is minimal, add coffee grounds or other fragrant stuff that does not rot.
    Remove coffee grounds and charcoal. Repeat steps 3 – 5 until happy.

  2. Coffee grounds simply disguise unwanted odours and leave behind the not-unattractive odour of coffee, rather like individuals of both sexes fling on to themselves a range of perfumes to hide BO.
    I once worked for J Lyons in the UK in their Central Laboratories. Within a few days of joining them in 1967 I was tasked to find a profitable use of their spent coffee grounds. The coffee division of J Lyons produced mountains of the waste each year that ended up in land-fills.
    I converted the grounds by heating in a nitrogen atmosphere, or oxygen starved atmosphere, to a black mass of carbon and then heated the carbon in steam at elevated temperatures to produce activated carbon.
    Once activated the carbon could be used for chemisorption of unwanted gases or purification of water; and all those other many established uses of active carbon. The process, starting with dried and spent coffee grounds, was patented by the company.
    Therefore, conversion of spent coffee grounds to the odourless active carbon produced a product that removed any unwanted gas or vapour from a polluted or contaminated environment. The mechanism was based on chemisorption of unwanted gases that removed them from an atmosphere such as air or water.

  3. I have a new product that I will bring out in the fall of 2017. It will be called odorawaynow works on skunk odor, fish, smoke, bathroom odor, works on many things and has no smell.

  4. Take it from someone who grows (and uses a lot of) onions, garlic, etc.
    25 lbs of onions for a French Onion soup, all sliced by hand. Take out the coffee grounds from the morning brew…wet a bit if needed, scrub-a-dub-dub outside…
    Most of the onion smell gone.
    Processing meat. You hunters know the gamey smell of field dressing a deer. Coffee grounds. I tear my plastic gloves (even the good ones) every time and have blood soaked hands. That must smell can persist for several days!
    Coffee grounds.
    Dry coffee grounds for my downstairs wardrobe. It’s cedar lined, but the cedar has lost much of it’s smell (140 years ago:). The coffee grounds absorb smells yet the leather smells good.
    A welding apron…sulfur metal slag smell…gone.

  5. When we get a hint of a bad smell that leaves our nose hair stinging, we all know the feeling or the drop in our stomach. We might be quick to grab a candle or use a spray that only hides the odor, rather than removing it. Under the fragrance of lavender or pumpkin (or whatever candle you have), the horrible smell still lies in wake only waiting at any moment to breakthrough.

    Do coffee grounds remove odors?

    The good news is, you no longer have to worry about simply masking the smell. You can easily remove bad odor. Apart from being one of the best drinks in the world after water, coffee grounds can also help eliminate those mischievous odors that cause us (mainly our nose) to reel.
    From cigarette smoke to the vile smell of rotten eggs, coffee grounds have proven to be quite effective in ridding your home of those not-so-nice odors. It is powerful enough to neutralize the air and eradicate the stringent odors that can come from garbage cans or foods, due to the strong scent that coffee omits.
    Remove odor in your car
    Have you ever stopped at a fast-food restaurant, and the next day, the smell lingers in your car? As much as I love a good burger, I hate smelling it long after I have eaten it the next morning. Just place some open coffee grounds in a level spot within your vehicle before running to pick an air freshener for your car. The coffee will absorb the smell of your fries and burger, and replace it with a more neutralized smell, which is much more pleasant to those who enter your car.

    If you go to a fragrance store you’ll notice that most of these stores have coffee beans next to the colognes and perfumes. It helps cleanse your palate so that you can try different fragrance samples and tell the difference between all of them.

  6. Yes, coffee ground does remove odors. For example, there’s always a can of coffee grounds placed next to the perfume counter. So, customers can inhale the coffee ground if they wish to test different perfume. Guess what, I also place a can of coffee grounds in the toilet in order to remove offensive smells.

  7. In my experience, no. Maybe there was something about my grains but it didn’t work. That doesn’t mean that you can’t try it for yourself.
    What you can try to do is make your own DIY perfumes . They smell amazing and when you find the odor that you love most, then it’s easy to become your homes’ signature smell.

  8. I think you would be better with baking powder. To be honest, coffee grounds will just replace the smell with something more pleasant in my opinion and not get rid of the smell.
