When it comes to cleaning, a good hack can save you time and money. But sometimes you have to ask yourself whether a shortcut or budget saver is worth the effort.
That’s what Ashley Poskin from Apartment Therapy pondered when she heard that plant enthusiasts use banana peel to buff their plants.
Since she was looking for an easy way to remove dust and grime from her plants, she put the hack to the test.
“It definitely took a dull leaf and made it shiny — but I'm not totally sold on the idea,” she reported on Apartment Therapy.
“The banana peels collected a lot of dust but also left behind little gummy dust balls on the leaves.”
But she didn’t let the banana peels go to waste.
“After cleaning the leaves with the peels, I chopped them up and tossed 'em in the pot for fertilizer. I read that roses loves banana peels, so I'm crossing my fingers my Alocasia will too!”
So now you know!
