That Banana Peel Has Many Uses

Banana, Tropical Fruit, Yellow, Healthy, Fresh, RipePeople always think of slipping on a banana peel, but they actually have many uses!

Before you throw it away, try shining your shoes with it! Potassium is the main ingredient in shoe polish! It will also work to make your house plants more shiny!

Got an old CD that is scratched? Make it seem new again by rubbing the inside of the peel on the back of the CD, then rub off with a soft cloth.

Aphid problem in the garden? Bury a few peels 1 inch down in the dirt. The aphids don’t like the potassium- and side bonus, neither do ants! 

Whiten your teeth! Yes, rub the peel on your freshly brushed teeth for about 2 minutes daily for a brighter, whiter smile.

Those are just a few examples of why you should maybe store a few peels in a ziplock for a few days before you throw them away. Who knew?
