tough stains and grease thats all over the kitchen utensils is a nuisance. In order to

minimize the time of removing those dirt, people usually use commercial dishwashing

liquids. Many commercial household cleaning products contain effective ingredients that

are really hard to get but these are also not good for our health. It is labeled harmful if

swallowed. Each time people wash their dishes, some residue is left on them which

gathers together with each washing. Your food picks up part of the residue, especially if

your meal is hot when you eat it. This lends the researchers to produce an organic

dishwashing liquid made of gumamela petals and banana peelings.

Stop throwing away the banana peelings after being consumed. Stop plucking

gumamela flowers. These two organic materials have their own significance. In this

study, they have essential constituent that are good in removing stains and grease from

kitchen tools. Gumamela contains mucilage that effectively removes stains while the

Banana peeling has its fibrous part which is the cellulose.

Statement of the Problem

This study will produce a high quality alternative dishwashing liquid from

banana peelings and gumamela petals.

Specifically, this study attempt to:

1.) Assess the Banana Peelings, Gumamela Petals and Commercial Dishwashing
Liquid in terms of its odor, cleaning agents and the effectiveness in greasiness
and oiliness of an individual plate.

Significance of the Study

Through this study, one would be aware of the potential of otherwise be thrown

away materials like peels of fruits like those in bananas. This study can reproach people

to stop plucking flowers like gumamela without even knowing its significance. It would

benefit those hygiene-punctilious people and environmentalists as this study aims at

producing all-natural dishwashing liquid. The other beneficiaries of this study are wives

who are left at home when their husbands and children are out as it will encourage them

to create their own healthy organic cleaning material. Moreover, this study will be

promoting awareness on the significance of recycling materials. Furthermore, this will

promote health awareness to protect the children from chemical-based cleaning
