A banana is an excellent fruit that packs a lot of nutrients. It’s tasty and it is also a favorite ingredient for pastries and desserts. When you eat a banana, you usually discard its peel or turn it into compost.
But did you know that there are more uses to the banana peel? Probably not.
After reading this post, you might want to think twice about throwing away those banana peels.
#1. Alternative wart remover
There are just a lot of home remedies to remove warts, and banana peel is just one of them. Not only do the peels remove the annoying warts but also prevent their recurrence. Just cut a portion of the peel and place it on the affected area. Secure with a plaster and leave it overnight. Repeat the procedure until the wart disappears.
#2. Teeth Whitener
Banana as a whole is rich in potassium, a mineral which is believed to act as a teeth whitener. To whiten teeth with banana peel, go for bananas that have the right level of ripeness as they contain high amounts of potassium. Rub the inside of the peel onto your teeth for two minutes then let stand for ten minutes. Brush your teeth after.
#3. Meat tenderizer
Place some banana peels together with your meat inside the pan as you cook and you’ll have an instant meat tenderizer.
#4. Rose fertilizer
We all know that banana peels are good for compost, but more specifically, they can be good food for roses.
#5. Mosquito bite reliever
A lot of people believe that banana peel works wonders on mosquito bites, as they can relieve itching and swelling of the affected area. There’s no scientific paper to back these claims, but it is believed that the peel will absorb fluid from the swollen area.
#6. Splinter remover
Got splinter problems? Get some banana peel! According to the renowned Dr. Oz, splinters can be removed when you put a piece of the peel onto the affected area for several hours or overnight. The peel is said to soften the skin, which makes it easy for the splinter to come out.
#7. Acne treatment
Who knew that bananas could be the natural solution to your acne problems? Just rub the inside of the peel on your face for ten minutes and leave it alone for some time. Do not wash your face immediately and let the residue work its magic.

#9. Prevents wrinkles
Starting to worry about those wrinkles on your face? The banana peel is your friend. Rub the inside of the peel on those lines. The vitamin C and other antioxidants in bananas enhance collagen production and boosts circulation. Add the banana peel to your beauty regimen now.
