Banana Peeling as Shoe Polish
Chapter 1
C. Scope and Limitation
This experiment is about the possibility of Lacatan, Latundan or Senorita banana peeling to shine a shoe as if it is a real s

Introduction
A. Statement of the Problem:
1. Which kind of banana peeling will best shine a shoe/leather, Lakatan, Latundan or Senorita?
2. Will the banana peeling give the shoe a shine like of a real shoe polish?
3. How long will the shine on the shoe last?
B. Significance of the Study:
Since banana is one of the fruits that we usually have in our house and we almost eat every day. Instead of throwing its peeling right away in the biodegradable bin, why not first make something useful from it where we will be able to benefit and at the same time help save mother earth? The ones who will mostly benefit from this experiment are those who usually use leather shoes like students, office workers, teachers and many more. The reason why we thought of trying this experiment is simply because first; we want to make the trash we throw everyday become lesser and make something much useful from it than its usual use. Second reason is that for us to save the money we use when we buy expensive shoe polish in the supermarkets or dept. stores. Third reason is that it promotes good health because isn’t it that whenever we buy shoe polish in the market we will not be able to buy or even see a shoe polish that doesn’t have any harmful chemical mixed with it; in this experiment no harmful chemicals will be involved because we will use a natural material. And last but not the least, is for time management, since what we’ve said awhile ago that banana is at most the fruit available in one’s home we will not need to travel on car or walk a mile just to reach the nearest supermarket to buy a shoe polish that’ll take half an hour or more; but in this experiment it’ll be its vice versa because you’ll just need to eat a banana and get its peeling and rub it on your shoe then you’ll have an instant shoe shine in less than half an hour!
D. Definition of Terms

benefit- to profit, something that is advantageous or good
biodegradable- capable of decaying through the action of living organisms
conclude- To bring to an end; close
polish- To make smooth and shiny by rubbing or chemical action
promote- to help or encourage to exist or flourish
target- A desired goal

vice versa- With the order or meaning reversed; conversely
A. Materials:
• 3 different kinds of banana peeling ( lakatan, latundan and senorita)
• Leather shoes/ belt (the leather that you want to polish)
• Brush
• Any piece of cloth
• Newspaper
RESULTS AND DISCUSSION
A. Data Gathered
We tried our best to figure out the banana peeling that gave the best shine and consulted other people on which banana peeling worked the best based from the pictures taken. Most of the people that we asked said that the banana peeling that gave the belt the best shine was the Lakatan banana peeling next was the Latundan then the Senorita. And based from our observation the banana peeling which lasted the longest was also the Lakatan banana peeling which lasted the whole day next was the Latundan banana peeling which lasted for hours then Senorita which also lasted for hours but Latundan lasted longer.
B. Explanation
We have observed that all kinds of banana peeling that we used gave a shine like that of a real shoe polish cream. This was possible because fruits and vegetables are rich in minerals and they contain essential oils like the one that a banana has .It is also known as esters another term for fat or oil.The banana peel gets its natural color from the sun and soil minerals producing essential oils. This essential oil is scientifically called as ethyl buterate.
Leather
B. Procedure:
1. Get the newspaper and lay it on the floor, this is to maintain cleanliness throughout the experiment.
2. Get the leather that you want to polish in our case we will be using a belt made of leather and then brush it so that unnecessary dirt will be removed.
3. Get the Lakatan banana peeling and then rub it on the surface of the leather belt and then wipe it with a piece of cloth. Set aside for about 2 minutes. Use it for one day and observe.
4. Get the same leather belt you used the other day brush it so that unnecessary dirt will be removed. Get the Senorita banana peeling and then rub it too on the surface of the leather belt, wipe it with a piece of cloth. Set aside for about 2 minutes. Use it for one day and observe.
5. Get the same leather belt you used the other day brush it so that unnecessary dirt will be removed. Get the Latundan banana peeling and then rub it too on the surface of the leather shoes, wipe it with a piece of cloth. Set aside for about 2 minutes. Use it for one day and observe.
6. For every end of the day take a picture of the leather belt that you used, after 3 days compare all the pictures that you took and then observe which kind of banana peeling shined the leather the most and how long the shine lasted. (If it lasted for less than 1 day, for 1 day only or more than 1 day.)
