This is so useful! We bought an electric coffee grinder to grind spices and red peppers from our garden after they were dried. It did the trick, but the red peppers left a mess in the coffee grinder. I used the rice, took a wet paper, wiped it out, then did the rice again, and wiped it again. It was as good as new! This actually saved my coffee grinder, because I had no idea what to do to get the pepper oils out of it.
