Charcoal briquettes are a popular cooking medium these days, often replacing the conventional gas range and firewood options. Many people often mistake charcoal briquettes to be nothing more than shaped charcoal, or specially shaped lump charcoal. Actually, these are a composite material that is comprised of fine charcoal or wood dust mixed with a binder and a readily combustible substance.
It is considered an ideal fuel for grilling since it is easily to set alight, and it delivers heat evenly due to its uniform shape. Because of its popularity and practicality, charcoal briquettes are purchased and consumed so often and so much that there is a surplus of ash or unburnt briquettes that people accumulate. The problem with having so much surplus of ash and unburnt charcoal briquettes is that people have very little idea of how to dispose of it.
Here is what Charcoal can do.
1 Nourish Your Compost Heap
Mix charcoal into your compost pile to increase its carbon content. (If the pile smells like ammonia, it needs carbon.)
2 Keep Air Fresh
Place charcoal, in open bowls or perforated plastic bags, in your fridge or drawers to banish odors.
