Banana peels are not recyclable. They are food waste and therefore must be composted instead of recycled.
If you are still not comfortable disposing of your banana peels try a few of the following:
- Shoe polish — bananas contain potassium which is a key ingredient in shoe polish. So give it a try. Rub it on your shoe and wipe off with a cloth for an extra special shine. You may smell like the potent fruit, but your shoes will look great!
- Make your teeth whiter – If it’s on Youtube it must be true.
- 3.Wart Remover – If you have a wart that you can’t get rid of, try placing a piece of banana peel over the wart every night and hold in place with tape. It is said it may take 2-3 weeks for your wart to disappear.
