How to reuse banana peels in the garden and at home

First of all, you can reuse banana peels to feed plants. These wastes contain the same essential nutrients for plants, such as potassium, phosphorus and calcium. To use them as solid fertilizer , cut them into small triangular pieces and spread them on the ground. Over time they will dissolve providing nutrients to the plant.

As an alternative to solid fertilizer, you could use them as a liquid fertilizer . To use them in this way, place the peel in a jar . Separately, boil some water. Pour it into the jar, close it, wait about two hours , filter the liquid and use it to water the plants.

Let’s change the use and see how these wastes can be useful to us at home . The first thing you can do is use them to polish silverware . We all know that over time silver tends to oxidize and lose its natural shine. To restore it, rub the peel directly on the surface of the object and rinse.


If you have stained or dirty shoes, banana peels can also be a valuable aid in removing stains and cleaning the surface. To use them, rub the inside of the peel on the stain and clean with a damp cloth.

Finally, you can use them to absorb bad odors that naturally form on plates, pots or cutting boards. Rub the inside of the peel on the surface of the object to be cleaned and rinse. Alternatively you can place them in a closed place, such as a wardrobe or shoe rack and leave them to act for a few days. The peels will absorb odors, leaving the environment scented and fresh.
