10 Unusual Ways to Use Banana Peels

4. They help remove splinters.

A banana peel is rich in enzymes and these enzymes in the banana skin have a pulling action that will draw the foreign subject to the surface of the skin which will make it much easier to grab the splinter or sliver or glass with a pair of tweezers.

  • Apply a ripe banana peel to the affected area of the skin.
  • Let sit on the skin for 15 minutes.
  • Remove it gently without rubbing it on the skin.
  • Then remove the splinter.

5. Easy composting

Adding a banana peel to your compost pile will help introduce more calcium, magnesium, sulfur, phosphates, potassium, and sodium — all of which are vital to the healthy growth of your plants.

  • Cut the banana peels into smaller pieces.
  • Bury the banana skins under the plant you want to fertilize — ideally next to the roots.
  • Water the plant right away to let the soil sit on top of it.
