How to Polish Shoes With a Banana
No shoe polish? No problem, as long as you have a banana! That's right, you can go polish your shoes with this yellow crescent of unparalleled beauty because bananas contain a key ingredient found in commercial shoe polishes - potassium. Here's how.
Peel a banana. Take the fruit out and eat it if you like, just make sure you keep the skin.
2. Apply the skin. Using the inner lining of the banana skin, begin to rub it all over your shoes, just as you would if you were using polish. It may feel strange to be doing this (and it is) but don't worry, it does work.
Buff. Once you have wiped the banana skin over the whole of both shoes, buff them up with a soft cloth.
Admire your now clean shoes. They'll come up shiny and almost like new again: perfectly polished shoes, organic style.
* The natural oils in the banana soak into the leather, helping your shoes to last longer. Potassium, a key ingredient in commercial shoe polish, is found in abundance in bananas!
