Bananas: peanut butter’s BFF, a necessary addition to any smoothie and an all-natural shoe polish. Wait, what? Yep, it turns out banana peels are great for making your shoes look shiny and new again.

What You Need:
 - 1 not-quite-ripe banana
 - A soft cloth
 - Leather or faux-leather shoes

Step 1: Peel the banana, set the peel aside and enjoy a nice snack before you start buffing.

Step 2: Rub the inside of the peel on your shoes and watch as the scuffs disappear.

Step 3: Use a soft cloth to remove any residue. Now you’re ready to hit the town in your fruity fresh shoes.
