Imagine this, you are at work and ready to go in for a big meeting with your boss. You notice that your shoes are scruffy looking. What do you do? Make use of that banana peel from your lunch. Shine your shoes by rubbing them with the inside of the banana peel. Then buff them up with a cloth or paper towel

Editor's Note: We know nothing about making a commercial shoe polish or floor polish from banana peels or leaves. Sorry.

Going back to your banana peel. The peel or skin gets its natural color from the sun and soil minerals producing natural skin oil like your skin. This essential oil is called in science as ethyl buterate, like your ethyl alcohol made from sugar cane (hydroxy groups) another is distillation process see also distillation keyword and essential oils.

One could synthesize oils and flavoring from just about any fruits, trees, or even leaves. There are boundless resources and derivatives in nature that already been discovered yet undisclosed to us in public. Source Naturally Occurring substance.
