How to Whiten Teeth with Banana Peel

By Contributor ; Updated July 27, 2017

To whiten teeth with banana peel is very safe and healthy for teeth as banana peels are a wonderful source of minerals and vitamins. They do not have the abrasiveness that other natural whiteners have and best of all they are inexpensive.

Brush your teeth as usual with a natural toothpaste or you can use the banana peel first and then brush.

Use a ripe banana as it has the most potassium content in it. Peel from the bottom end as this is how monkeys peel their bananas and it will keep you from having all those loose threads.

Take a piece of the inside of the banana peel and gently rub around on your teeth for about 2 minutes. The amazing minerals in the peel like potassium, magnesium and manganese absorb into your teeth and whiten them.

Repeat the same procedure at night or before bedtime, to whiten teeth. Leaving the banana peel on longer is optional if you have stains that need to come off.

Do the banana peel routine twice daily to see teeth whiten.

Smile and share your wonderful teeth whitening secret.

You don't have to throw the old banana peels away, you can recycle them. They make an excellent mineral compost for plants if dried out and ground up and sprinkled on the soil once a month. Your plants will love you for it!


Bananas last longer if hung on a banana rack in room temperature. Drinks like dark sodas, coffee, dark wines, dark tea and of course, smoking all stain the teeth. The leftover banana peel can be cut up and put in the freezer for using later even though it turns color, it can still be used and the leftover used for compost.


Research all whitening methods before trying as there are many people now experiencing problems from various teeth whitening methods.
