Banana is an amazing product, which is a pity, because it has a very wide range of useful uses.
Mask for the face
Who needs botox when eating a banana? It will perfectly moisturize and soften your skin. Simply mash a ripe banana into a gruel and apply to your face. Leave it on for 10-20 minutes and then wash off with cold water.
For a refreshing treat for kids, cut 4 bananas in half and insert an ice cream stick into each bite. Place in the freezer. When the bananas are frozen, take them out and sprinkle with chocolate chips or dipped in melted chocolate.
Use banana peel as a polish for silverware and leather shoes. Remove the viscous substance from the peel, and then rub the inner surface of the peel on shoes or silver items. When finished, dry everything with a paper towel.
Add one ripe banana to the marinade or pot of stew. This simple trick will make the meat tender.
Give indoor plants shine
To keep the leaves of your houseplants bright and shiny, rub them with banana peels.
Banana against aphids
If aphids attack any of your plants or trees, spread out and lightly dig underneath dried or chopped banana peels. The aphids will soon be gone.
Like the banana itself, its peel is rich in potassium, which is very beneficial for many plants in your garden. Dry the banana peel over the winter, chop it in a blender and use it as a fertilizer mulch in the spring.
Banana for warts
Take a piece of ripe banana peel, attach it to the wart, fix it with a plaster and leave it overnight. Repeat the process until the wart is gone.
Attracting birds and insects
Because bananas are extremely fragrant, their smell will easily attract birds and insects to your area. Just place overripe bananas on any tree stump or table and remove them in the evening.
From skin damage
Banana peel has an antiseptic effect, so it is good for it to wipe burns, bites, abrasions. Alternatively, apply it as a compress to the affected area.
Banana for ripening avocado
To speed up the ripening process of the avocado, place it in a paper bag along with the banana. Bananas release ethylene, which speeds up ripening.
Banana ice cream
If for one reason or another you cannot ice cream, then you can make an alternative from bananas. Chop or chop them in a blender and freeze. The result is an ice cream-like consistency. Add crushed nuts or coconut for the filling.
Treat for dogs
Dogs, of course, cannot eat the food that people eat, but a banana, in this case, is quite a treat for them. Pound it into a gruel and add it to your dog’s food. Bananas are rich in potassium, magnesium and fiber.
