WHAT TO SAVE:ORANGE PEELS
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.
