Abstract

This study aims to test the feasibility of ipil-ipil

leaves, banana peel, and baby oil as an alternative shoe polish.

The researchers has seen the effect of commercial shoe polish

and would like to determine if ipil-ipil leaves, banana peel and

baby oil could be an alternative instead of using those shoe

polish. The researchers conducted this study in order for people

to be inform that ipil-ipil leaves, banana peel, and baby oil

can be used in other way like they can be an alternative shoe

polish that can really help people in soling their problems

about the risk of the commercial shoe polish. So with the study,

the lives of the people will be more convenient.

        Using ipil-ipil leaves, mortar and pestle, banana peel,

baby oil and shoes the researchers has conducted the experiment.

In making ippil-ipil leaves, banana peel and a baby oil as an

alternative shoe polish first the materials will be gathered.

Then the collected ipil-ipil leaves are pounded using the mortar

and pestle. Then the ipil-ipil paste are out in a container.

Then separately apply the ipil-ipil paste in the shoe. After

testing the ipil-ipil paste separately scrub the banana peel in

the shoe. After scrubbing the banana peel separately apply the

baby oil in the shoe. The results show that ipil-ipil, banana

peel and baby oil are healthier than the commercial shoe polish  

  1. Background Study

Ipil-ipil (leucena glauca) is abundant in the Philippines. People may consider it as an ordinary plant that grows everywhere. Ipil-ipil plant grows up to 2 to 6 meters high. The leaves are 8-16 and 5-8 centimeters long. The leaflets are 20-30 linear oblong and 7-12 centimeter in diameter,with many flower. The pods are thjn, flat strap-shaped,12-18 centimeter long and 1.4-2 centimeters wide each containing from 15-25 elliptic ,compressed,shiny,brown seeds which are used in making bags and also used as a substitute for coffee.

Banana leaves sometimes used for feedstock for cattle, goats, poultry, rabbits, fish and other several species, typically in small farms and regions  where bananas are grown. There are some concerns over the impact of tannis contained in the peels on animals that consume them.
