Orange Peels! Who Knew?

I am so glad I found this little tidbit on Marth Stewart's blog.

While orange peels aren't all that great for eating, they still come in great use around the house. Here are three simple ways to use leftover orange peel:
  • Because of its high content of flammable oil, dried peel makes a great fire starter.
  • Cats don't like the smell of orange peel, so you can place it around plants where you don't want cats digging.
  • Use dried orange peel to remove musty smells by placing it in a cloth bag and storing it in closets and cupboards.
  • Orange zest can be dried overnight and then stored in airtight bottles for future use.
