1. Some of the best green cleaning products are things you would least expect. Cleaning with banana peels is one idea that you wouldn't think of, but will be surprised at how well it works. Banana peels work because of the texture and the oils found in banana peels act as a mild abrasive and polish which works excellent at cleaning leather furniture. After you finish using the banana peel to polish the leather furniture you can use a microfiber cloth to wipe away any remaining residue. You can also use banana peels for other home cleaning recipes to include leather jacket, dress shoes, and running shoes. The potassium found in the bananas absorbs into the leather and helps to diminish any scuff marks. Then simply wipe away any remaining residue and buff with a microfiber cloth for a glossy, looking-like-new sheen.
