1. Stop Itching
Starting off with a topical benefit, banana peels are great for relieving the painfully distracting itch of bug bites. Massaging the raised bumps with the inside of a banana peel can provide instant results. This remedy is also reported to work on rashes caused by poison ivy or poison oak.
Science hasn’t figured out why it works, but you can’t argue with results. People who have tried it report that one application relieves itching all day.
