Rubbing the inner part of a piece of the peel gently over your teeth for a few minutes can help to whiten your teeth. Be sure to do this once or twice a day and rinse off when you’re done. Probably the only exception to this is those that have naturally brown teeth, in that case a banana peel might not do much to help. In this case, a visit to a dentist will better help you.

2.Acne treatment
