Great bro," said YouTube @vanbaso.

"For bathroom walls, what do you do with starfruit?" asked the YouTube account @ellyusman564.

"Haven't tried it for walls yet because the way it works is to remove crust/dirt by using the acid from the fruit... maybe you could try it by mashing it then smearing it on the ceramic walls and letting it sit for a few hours... because it can also whiten it skin in that way," answered YouTube user creative studio channel.
