    I was going to say put them in the garbage disposal to freshen it up, but Lisa H already stated that one. Same with all citrus peels. You can also make dondurma, a middle-eastern ice treat. Zest an orange peel into a pan that has 2 cups water, 2 cups orange juice and a couple of tablespoons sugar (or to taste). Bring to a boil. Pour into either popsicle containers or a baking pan. Put in the freezer. If you aren't making popsicles, stir the liquid every now and then while it freezes to make shaved ice or let it freeze and use a metal spoon to scrape layers of ice into dessert cups.

    place orange rinds in sweaty shoes to remove oders.

    I put mine in my disposal too. I always forget to dehydrate them and make potpourri.
