While many of you are "throwing back" today, I'm here to tell you not to "throw away" your banana peel when your done with the banana!  WHY?  You can put this to good use!

 

You can polish your shoes, leather or silverware, tenderize meat (yuck), feed your plants or even whiten your teeth....have fun with that! 

So if you need to treat a bruise (on you....not on the banana), or remove a wart, the banana peel can work wonders!
