This investigative project aims to invent a new form of an alternative or a substitute for
the commercial dishwashing liquid using the Banana (Musa Sapientum) Peelings. In this, the
sufferings from buying commercial dishwashing liquid that contributes to our daily cost and the
suffering that we face in using detergent bar in plates will be lessen or will be decrease. Instead
of using harmful chemicals in manufacturing dishwashing liquid, we replaced it with Banana
peelings as an effective cleaning agent. Through this we can help to ease the case of water
pollutions because 70% of the Earth is water.
Even this project has a very great contribute and help, there are a lot of factories that
doesnt concern about what will happen in every rime that they discharge the chemicals that
they used in manufacturing dishwashing liquids. It may lead to water pollution then after, the
fishes and other aquatic living things will be affected. This are the main problem in water
pollution. As a citizen of this nation, we have obligations to our country and nature thats why
we came up with this project that will surely lessen the use of chemicals in making dishwashing
Specifically, this investigative project aim to; A.)Determine the Feasibility of Banana
peelings as an alternative or substitute for the commercial dishwashing liquid. B.)Assess the
banana peelings dishwashing liquid and commercial dishwashing liquid in terms of its odor,
cleaning agents and the effectiveness in greasiness and oiliness of an individual plate. C.)
Compare Musa Sapientum Dishwasher to commercial ones.
Only Banana (Musa Sapientum) Peelings and Washing Soda was used in this project. The
study employed; 1.Preparation of the product ; 2.Analyses of the product ; 3.Evaluation Of The
Musa Sapientum Dishwasher.
The procedure is easy and can be done easily through the help of the available materials
found in our kitchen. Kilogram of banana peelings were gathered , cut into small pieces ,
blendes or pounded using mortar and pestle. Filtrate the blended peelings on a filter paper or
clothe and extract the liquid and place in a boiler. Mix until it thickens, let it cool completely.
We can add any essential oils and food color of we desire.
Based from the researches and study conducted the following results determined that the
Banana peelings can be used as an alternative for the commercial dishwashing liquids and
product was assess through testing the sample.
We therefore conclude that our finished product Musa Sapientum Dishwasher has the
feasibility to be an alternative dishwashing liquid for the commercial ones.

A.Background of the study
Our nature , our place of living our life the Earth, is fully affected by changing
technologies , factories and other industrialized plants. The discharged chemicals from a vast
number of factories on our river and other water phases was continously destroyed and damaged,
all the chemicals contributes majorly for the destruction of our water phases- the Aquatic living
things died because of the harmful properties of a chemical.
This study aims to produce an eco-friendly dishwashing liquid. It emphasizes to help the
world problem- the water pollution. Nowadays, people often used branded dishwashing liquid or
detergent bar in washing plates but they dont know the consequences in using it.
In this wide search, the researchers found that there is a key to the problem water
pollution which may be found in Banana Peelings.

B. Statement Of The Problem
This project generally endeavor to manufacture a high quality substitute for the
commercial dishwashing liquid from banana peelings and perform physical analyses to test its
cleaning properties through comparative analyses.
Specifically, this project endeavor to:
1.Control the water pollution.
2. Determine the Feasibility of Banana peelings as an alternative or substitute for the
commercial dishwashing liquid
3. Assess the banana peelings dishwashing liquid and commercial dishwashing liquid in
terms of its odor, cleaning agents and the effectiveness in greasiness and oiliness of an individual

C. Significance of the Study
Water pollution is one of the most major issues the world is facing nowadays, which
leads to death of the aquatic living things that will greatly affect us in terms of Fisheries and if
not stopped it may lead to terrible global changes.
Here in the Philippines pollution is greatly caused by improper expulsion of chemicals
from factories and other industrial unit or plants.
This project will significantly help the environment ease the chemical problems that
causes water pollution , price hike and health problems like gastrointestinal diseases.

D. Scope and Limitation
This study deals with Banana (Musa Sapientum ) specifically its peelings. The banana
peelings were gathered when we eat banana or in a banana cue stand.
We gathered evaluations on how effective the banana peelings as a dishwashing liquid,
and also how bacteria will react when they are washed using the Musa Sapientum Dishwasher.
We did not study about how long does our product will endure (months/years), but we
test it and it is really effective dishwasher.

Formulation of Hypothesis
1. Banana Peelings dishwashing liquid can be a good substitute for commercial dishwashing
liquid with it same properties like odor, cleaning properties and effectiveness to
greasiness and oiliness.
2. Banana Peelings dishwashing liquid can be an efficient bacterial killer.
3. Banana Peelings dishwashing liquid is cheaper and easy to make that the commercial
dishwashing liquid.

Review of Related Literature
Banana- Musa sapientum or Banana is one the most widely recognized and consumed fruits
in the world. They are considered valuable both for their nutritional qualities as well as their
economic qualities, and they come in a variety of colors, flavors and sizes. Not only the banana
fruit is useful, but also its skin. Banana skins are composed of nutritional, non nutritional
contents and minerals. Banana peels have become a supply of nutrients for animal feedstock and
a fertilizer.
Banana peels have special cleaning properties that make them a tremendous environmentally
friendly cleaning product. The fibrous part (cellulose) of banana peel is one of its cleaning
properties. It helps clean walls and other materials. The moist peel of a fresh banana contains
many useful cleaning enzymes and organic cleaning chemicals that are not only effective, but are
safe for the environment. One nice thing about banana peels is that they give a fresh, pleasurable
scent to your home. Banana peels are also recyclable, which makes them completely risk-free to
the environment
Washing Soda- (also known as washing soda, soda ash and soda crystals), Na2CO3 is
a sodium salt of carbonic acid. It most commonly occurs as a crystalline heptahydrate, which
readily effloresces to form a white powder, the monohydrate. Sodium carbonate is domestically
well known for its everyday use as a water softener. It can be extracted from the ashes of many
Polyethylene Glycol- PEG is the basis of many skin creams (as cetomacrogol)
and personal lubricants (frequently combined with glycerin).
PEG is used in a number of toothpastes as a dispersant. In this application, it binds water and
helps keep xanthan gum uniformly distributed throughout the toothpaste.
PEG is also under investigation for use in body armor, and in tattoos to monitor diabetes.
PEG is also one of the main ingredients in paintball fills, due to its thickness and flexibility.
However, as early as 2006, some Paintball manufacturers began substituting cheaper oil-based
alternatives for PEG.

Summary And Conclusion
In summary , banana peeelings with the ingredients of dishwashing liquids have been
proved from this investigatory project that it could be an effective yet cheap dishwashing liquid
from the data gathered through researches and investigations. It can help us to solve the water
pollution and its further problems.

We therefore conclude that our finished product Musa Sapientum Dishwasher has the
feasibility to be an alternative dishwashing liquid for the commercial ones, because base on our
findings and results it implied that Musa Sapientum Dishwasher can eliminate Gresiness and
oiliness versus the Max Glow And Detergent Bar .
