ABSTRACT

Studies regarding making an all-natural shoe polishes, with banana peels as an ingredient, have

been made through the years- as an answer to the growing problem of inhalant abuse. And just

like banana peels, orange peels are also rich in potassium. However, their potential as a shoe

polish ingredient has not been investigated yet. This research was conducted with the purpose of

finding out whether orange peels could also be used as an ingredient in making an all-natural

shoe polish that does not contain chemicals. Different articles about homemade shoe polishes

found in the Internet were combined to make this product. Orange peels were first dried in the

beginning of this research and were later on grinded into a fine powder; this powder is then

added to the combined procedures that have been gathered. It took two failed trials for the

researchers to be able to make the shoe polish with the best result. Adding in orange peels to the

mixture made the finished product more pleasant to smell and be able to polish shoes more

effectively. The next researchers interested in conducting the same study is recommended to look

for other biowastes that could also be used as an ingredient in making an all-natural shoe polish.
