If your shoes are drab and dull you can shine them up in a matter of minutes. The best part about this neat trick is it is very frugal because you won’t pay more than $0.20 (the cost of a single banana). Compare that price to a bottle of shoe polish and you are saving a good chunk of change!

How to Polish Your Shoes Naturally:

What you will need:

  • Your dress shoes
  • A banana peel


  1. Eat the banana (if you wish) and keep the peel.
  2. Rub the inside of the banana peel all across your shoes.
  3. Take a clean, soft cloth and rub in the banana goo, wiping off any chunks.
  4. You are now left with shiny shoes! (They also smell pretty good too)

Why does this work? It’s simple, the banana peel contains potassium which is a key ingredient in shoe polish. The potassium helps keep the shoes shiny and looking new.
