You Will Never Throw Away Banana Peels After Watching This

Human-beings consume billions of bananas each year, making this peculiar yellow-fruit one of the most popular foods in the world. However, those billions of bananas we eat result in billions of banana-peels which are typically thrown away. Did you know banana-peels make one of the best fertilizers out there? I didn’t until I started researching it. Turns out, banana-peels are a rich source of nutrients your plants crave: Potassium, phosphorus, and calcium, along with a host of other minerals your plants need. Here are 6 ways to recycle your banana-peels and never throw them away. 1.Compost Probably the most popular and easiest use for banana-peels is to mix them into the compost-pile. Peels add potassium and phosphorus to compost which promote root-development and overall plant health when incorporated into garden-soil. 2.Brew-some-compost-tea If you don’t have a compost-pile, you can still use banana-peels to feed your garden. Simply drop a few peels into a-bucket full of water and let it sit for a couple of days to make compost “tea.” Mix one-part banana-peel compost “tea” with five-parts fresh-water and feed this mineral-rich mixture to your plants about once per-week in lieu of your normal watering. The added potassium and phosphorus will give your plants a-boost to keep them growing-strong. 3. Dried-Peel-Fertilizer you can dry your banana-peels and grind them into a fertilizer. If you only have a few peels to use-up, but want to use them effectively on many plants, this is a great option. Add to your garden-soil directly, either by sprinkling as a side dressing or gently incorporating into the-dirt. 4.Create-a-banana-peel-spray this spray is a fertilizer that also uses eggshells for a calcium-boost and Epsom-salt for magnesium. To create the fertilizer spray, you’ll need banana-peels, egg-shells, Epsom-salt, and water.    Dry the banana-peels and egg-shells, then once they’re dry, grind them together. Add the peels and shells to a spray-bottle, along with the Epsom-salt, and fill the sprayer to the top. Spray on your-plants as needed. 5.Livestock-Feed Humans are not the only ones who enjoy bananas. Livestock like chickens, rabbits, and pigs will enjoy ground-up dried banana-peels added to their feed. Just make sure to clean the peels of any wax or pesticides before drying and offering them to pets or livestock. And 6. Create-banana-peel-vinegar Blueberries and other acid loving plants will enjoy a treat of banana-vinegar. Put your peels in a mason-jar, and cover with enough water so they’re submerged. Cover with cloth and rubber-band or a loosely fitting-top. Let the mixture sit for a week while the good-bacteria does its job and unlocks the nutrients in the peel. After a week, remove the peels, and allow the water to sit, covered, until the mixture ferments into a vinegar. This can take anywhere from 4-6 weeks, depending on conditions such-as temperature. If the mixture seems especially potent, dilute it with water right before using so you don’t accidentally burn your plants.

Never Throw Away Lemon Peels, This Is How To Reuse Them Again

Next time you eat an orange or a grapefruit, or squeeze a lemon or a lime, save the peels! There are so many ways to use these peels. Lemon peel contains 5-10 times more vitamins than the juice itself, including vitamins C, A, beta-caroten, calcium, magnesium and potassium. This is what you can do with your lemon peels. 1.Coffee Cup Stain Remover. Put some lemon peel into a coffee stained mug, add some warm water and allow to sit for a few hours. Pour away and then scrub and the coffee stains should disappear! 2.Microwave Cleaner. This is a really simple natural microwave cleaner. Add some lemon peels to a microwave safe bowl filled halfway with water. Heat the water on full power in the microwave for five minutes giving it time to boil and the steam to condense inside the microwave. Safely remove the bowl and wipe away the residue with a towel. 3.Clean your tea kettle or coffee pot. To clean mineral deposits in your tea kettle: Fill the kettle with water and add a handful of thin slices of lemon peel. Bring it to a boil then turn off the heat. Let is sit for an hour, drain, and rinse well. 4.Citrus Zest. Using a fine grater or zester grate the citrus peels to create a fine zest. This zest can be used to add flavor to all sorts of dishes, and is great for use in baking. You can even freeze it to keep for later. 5.Lemon Olive Oil. This is a super simple way to add citrusy flavor to olive oil. Simply add 2-3 tablespoons of finely grated lemon zest to a cup of extra virgin olive oil, place in a glass jar and allow to stand for two weeks, shaking occasionally. Pour the oil into a strainer and discard the zest and you’ll be left with delicious lemon flavored oil. 6.Deodorize the garbage disposal. Use lemon peels to deodorize the garbage disposal and bring that amazing citrus smell to your kitchen. Fake lemon cleaners have nothing on the real thing. Simply put a peel or two down the disposal, flip the switch on with the water running, and done. 7.Make a scented humidifier. If your home suffers from dry heat in the winter, you can put lemon peels in a pot of water and simmer on the lowest stove-top setting to humidify and scent the air. 8.Citrus Vinegar Cleaner. Vinegar is an incredible natural cleaner but has a pungent smell that not many people like. Infusing citrus peels in the vinegar gives a fresh aroma that masks the nasty smell and adds extra cleaning properties!  9.Trash Can Freshener. Throw some lemon peels into your trash can to kill bad odors and freshen up. And 10.Freshen your Fridge. Place a lemon peel or two inside your fridge to absorb smells and bring a bright citrus scent inside your fridge. Lemons have amazing benefits so why not grow some lemons.

Put Baking Soda On Your Garden Plants and This will Happen

You probably have at least one box of baking soda in your home – if you’re like so many other Americans, it’s most likely sitting in your refrigerator as a way to combat odors, and you might have another carton in your pantry for baking. But there are so many other uses for it, from household cleaning and health to gardening, you might want to go out and purchase at least a couple more. Here is what baking soda can do to your garden. 1.Get more beautiful blooms. For flowers that thrive in alkaline soil, such as hydrangeas, begonias, and geraniums, you can encourage them to bloom magnificently by using baking soda. Just dissolve a little baking soda in your water before giving them their regular drink. Also to keep your cut flowers fresh for a long time put a teaspoon of baking soda in the vase. 2. Sweeter Tomatoes. Sprinkle a small amount of baking-soda around the base of your tomato plants. The baking soda will be absorbed into the soil and lowers the acidity level of tomatoes, thus gives you sweeter than tart flavor. 3.Give Plants a Boost. Mix together 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon clear ammonia and 1 teaspoon Epsom salt in a gallon of water. Mix well and give each plant about a quart of the solution. This solution will work as a fertilizer, the plants that are looking dull, and growing slowly will perk up, rejuvenate their growth and become lush green. 4.Use it as a Pesticide. Use baking soda to effectively reduce infestations of many insects such as aphids, scales, and the spider mites. It may not kill them all but have a repellent action and halt their progress. Mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda and 1/3 cup of olive or mustard oil. Measure out 2 teaspoons of this mix and add it to 1 cup of water. Mix it well together and spray it on the infected plants. 5.Smelly compost. To keep the smell from a compost pile under control, use a small amount of baking soda which will eliminate the odor and prevent acidity build up – just use it sparingly as too much can slow the composting process. 6.Kill crabgrass and discourage weeds. If you have weeds or crabgrass growing in cracks on sidewalks, edges, patios or garden beds, you can use baking soda to get rid of them. It’s able to kill small weeds that have already sprouted, as well as to prevent new weeds from coming up. It will burn unwanted foliage, and feeds should disappear within just a few days. Just pour a thick layer onto the weeds and crabgrass after moistening it with water. Sweep the baking soda in a thick layer into any concrete cracks. 7.Test Soil pH. Take some soil on a dish and make it muddier. Sprinkle a small amount of baking soda onto the soil. If the combination bubbles, your soil is acidic.
