Bananas are my go-to breakfast treat every morning. They provide just the right amount of energy to get me through my morning must-dos–aka make coffee, lots of coffee. Aside from providing the body with necessary vitamins, like potassium, here are some pretty cool other uses for banana peels.
Use the inside of the banana peel to polish your shoes by rubbing it around the show, then buffing with a soft white cloth.
Clean leather similar to your shoes. Simply rub the inside of a banana peel on any scuffed leather goods, then follow by buffing with a soft cloth.
Polish your precious silver with leftover banana peels. Blend the peel with water then gently rub over your silver. Use a soft cloth to wipe clean.
You heard me. Houseplants get dusty too sometimes! Wipe down each leaf with the inside of a banana peel to remove dust and restore your plant’s original beauty.
Dry out your leftover banana peels by laying them flat on a screen. Once dry, grind them up in a food processor and use as mulch when planting your spring flowers. For established plants, you can simply cut up regular (non-dried) peels and sprinkle them around and in the dirt surrounding your plants.
