How I reuse vegie's peels


I hate chemical cleaning products. Their odor is so intensive, that since I do not have any window in my bathroom, its cleaning with chemicals is not possible for me. To keep my house clean I use a mixture of apple cider vinegar and baking soda (by the way the odor is also very intense, but not as much as by chemical products). But there are also other ways to clean our house, that do not require buying anything! Leftovers of fruit, citrus potato peels usually end up on the compost or in the rubbish. In the meantime, it is worth using the fruit acids contained in them for cleaning.

Onion
Have you got a slice of onion? Rinse it with a knife or mortar till the liquit comes out, add some water and use it to polish the metal elements in your house (eg faucet, door handles). (don't worry when it is dry it doesn't smell at all).

Bananas
You can use a banana peel to refresh your leather furniture or clean your shoes. Just rub the cracks on the leather upholstery and damages will be less visible. I have also seen people cleaning their teeth with a banana peel. I have also tried it but I have not seen any whitening effect.

Cucumbers
The remains of cucumber can be use to polish stainless steel and ceramic like washbasins and ceramic bath tubs. Zou just need to peel the peels on the grater then mix it with salt and cover the places you want to clean. After 15-20 minutes, wipe off the pulp and it is done!

Spinach
It is common to use water in which I cooked spinach leaves to clean pots made of stainless steel (oxalic acid will make them shiny and glossy).

Lemon
Here we can use a lemon heel as a cleaning product. We need to put some drops of oil into it, and rub it in your furniture.After few minutes, wipe it down with a dry cloth.You can also use it to clean brass products. Instead of oil, add some acid vinegar, and rub it.

Potatoes
First of all, potatoes cam help you fight the rust. Mix all peels in a mixer and add some salt (1:1). Than rub the micture in a rusty object with using of a cloth.
Also the water after boiling potatoes can be reused. It is commonly used to water the houseplants, or for cleaning cutlery - immerse cutlery in it and cook on low heat for 10 minutes. It can also be used to descaling the kettle - fill it with water after boiling potatoes, cook it and leave it for at least 30 minutes.
I love using potatoes or carrots peels to make some homemade crisps. I just sprinkle them with olive oil, season with your favorite spices and bake them. Finally, it is worth using the peelings for ... the home composter. It is a natural way to fertilize balcony or home flowers.

Oranges
Cut the orange peels into a jar and pour enough apple cider vinegar to cover them. Put the mixture in  a dark place (necessarily)  for a week. Pour the liquid through the strainer and trow the peels away. Before using, dilute it with water (1: 1). I am using this mixture to wipe the dust from the furniture (also from the upholstering and paintings) and to wash the dishes (I use it instead of ordinary dishwashing liquid).
