"Millions of people drink coffee, but despite its popularity, it's also somewhat maligned due to its obvious connection to caffeine over-consumption," said Vanessa Raymond, features editor of HowToDoThings.com. "Interestingly, you can do a lot with coffee besides drink it, so we've highlighting many of those alternatives in recognition of 'Caffeine Awareness Month'. We're a great resource for 'do-it-yourself' enthusiasts, and visitors will find useful tips and information about coffee that they can use at home, from 'how to clean your fireplace using coffee grounds' to 'how to make a luxurious body scrub.'"

According, to Marina Kushner, founder of the Caffeine Awareness Alliance, "most caffeine addicts have no idea that they are addicts. But, with as little as 200 mg of caffeine, you can experience typical addictive symptoms such as irritability, restlessness, tension, insomnia, excitement, and gastrointestinal disturbance. If you boost that level to more than 1 gram (1000 mg), you can get irregular heartbeats, panic and anxiety disorders, muscle twitching, incoherent speech, excessive urination, flushed skin, and depression. And, believe it or not, when you take over 5 grams of caffeine, the results can be fatal. This is one addiction you want to kick quickly!"

Java Can Do More Than Jolt Your Senses

Despite the debate that brews over the health dangers and benefits that researchers associate with consuming caffeine, America's favorite caffeinated drink does have a variety of household uses with low environmental impact and cost.
