Non Food Uses for Peanuts:
The shells, skins and kernels of peanuts may be used to make a vast variety of non-food products. For example, the shells may be used in wallboard, fireplace logs, fibre roughage for livestock feed and kitty litter; and, the skins may be used for papermaking. Peanuts are often used as an ingredient in other products such as detergent, salves, metal polish, bleach, ink, axle grease, shaving cream, face creams, soap, linoleum, rubber, cosmetics, paint, explosives, shampoo, and medicine.Who knew?
The one that really struck me was kitty litter. We're contemplating getting a cat and that's the last thing I thought I would need to worry about.
