I found this tip on a forum the other day. Apparently banana skins are great for polishing your shoes. So I decided that it was such a novel idea, that I had to give it a try.
Take one very dirty boot
Apply your magnificent polishing skills with said banana skin (organic of course LOL).
One very clean and shiny boot.
I did wipe the boot over with a cloth and plain water afterwards (to get the little bits of banana off). But I have to say I am very impressed. These boots were muddy and scuffed and now look great. I'd been avoiding shoe polish because of the nasties and now I have a natural alternative, that I am very happy with :-)
Plus it's good to get another use out of our bananas!!
