Another reason to eat more oranges — their peels can repel mosquitoes, polish furniture and so much more

Oranges are delicious and so good for you; they’re loaded with vitamin C and can help prevent cardiovascular disease and high cholesterol.

But once you’ve peeled an orange, do you get rid of the outer layer? Don’t! It has so many surprising and handy uses around the house!

First, make sure you’re peeling your orange correctly. Set the peel aside for later. Then you can use it to:

  • Clean greasy buildup out of the microwave.
  • Keep mosquitoes away.
  • Shine wooden furniture.
  • Start a fire.
  • Make a DIY air freshener.
  • Even put yourself in a better mood!
