When we think of banana peels, we automatically assume that they are useless pieces of waste that must be disposed of.
What most people don’t know is that besides being thrown out in the trash or composted, Banana peels have many uses. Check out these great uses of banana peels that will blow your mind.
1. Whitening your teeth!
Most people don’t know it, but peeling a banana can brighten your smile. An enzyme in bananas called tyrosinase helps make your teeth whiter when you rub it on them.
You’ll get an extra whitening boost if you add a pinch of salt to it and use it as toothpaste. Acidic fruit acids and abrasive salts will scrub away surface stains while removing plaque. Be sure to brush after using it as well for best results.
