However, Re-Nest.com lists several more ways that the empty peels can be used. The list below shows 7 Alternative uses for those slippery little devils.

1. Help Your Garden Grow: Bananas are naturally high in potassium and encourages plant growth. Use banana peel or puree entire banana and bury with soil.

2. Shoe Polish: Use the peel to make your kicks nice and shiney.

3. Stop the Itch: Rub the inside of a banana peel on a bug bite helps itch relief.

4. Pain Reliever: The oil in a banana peel will help relieve the pain from burns and scratches.

5. Wart Removal: Tape a piece of banana peel on a wart, continue until it’s gone.

6. Make Houseplants Gleam: Just like peels can shine shoes, they can also be used to make the leaves of plants shine.

7. Removing Splinters: Similar to wart removal, tape a piece of the peel over the splinter. The enzymes will help dislodge the splinter and heal the wound.

Supermarkets are a car’s worst nightmare. I recently left my unsuspecting car in the parking lot of my local target and what did I find when I came back? Some jerk had plowed his grocery cart straight into the passenger side of my car. “Great!” So I either needed to find a quick fix on the cheap, or, stop eating meals for a while. Luckily a few days earlier, I had seen an article about just that! A quick fix in only 2 steps for under $5!

What you will need:

  • A can of Compressed Air (Such as a Keyboard Duster)
  • A Hairdryer

Directions:

  1. Heat the dent with the Hair Dryer for about 30 seconds
  2. Turn the can of compressed air upside down and apply for 10 seconds
  3. Wait for the ice to dry off and wipe the area clean.

If it works, the dent should pop up and look much better than before. I tried this on my car and it worked very well. It’s still a bit noticeable but much less than before. Try it out on your car and tell us how it worked!

Not much apparently as the LA Times has reported that after being stung by a bee, cutting an onion and applying it to the stung area will help to ease the pain as well as reduce the swelling. Yep, great on Tacos, Burgers, and bee stings!

Let Me Google That For You is a brilliant webtool which will help you create a passive aggressive response to that person asking you the lyrics to a popular song. Just insert your search Query into the familiar Google UI and click Generate. The user will be redirected to a page which explains to them, step by step, how to do a Google Search.

Whats that? How does a Ninja reheat rice in a Microwave?
