5 Surprising Uses of Banana Peel


1. Bug Repellent

A banana peel can be used in the trap to catch bugs in homes. Bugs get attracted to the peel's sweet scent and fly into the trap.

2. Composite For Gardening

Methane gas is produced from banana peels which is 84 times more intense in comparison to carbon dioxide. They are used for making composite for gardening.

3. Remove A Splinter Painlessly

A banana peel can be used to remove a splinter painlessly by applying it to the affected area for 30 minutes. The peel contains enzymes which bring the splinter to the surface of the skin and make it easy to remove it using a pair of tweezers.

4. Cooking Banana Peel

If a banana peel is added to the roasting pan when cooking meat or fish, it keeps the food moist and makes it more tender.

5. Reduce Scars And Acne

The acne and scars on the face get reduced if the fleshy side of the banana peel is rubbed for 10 minutes every day, as per skincare experts.
