5) Fix a Scratched CD or DVD: If your favorite disc won’t play smoothly, fix it with a banana peel. Rub the back of the disc in a gentle circular motion with the inside of the peel.

6) Silverware Polish: Blend banana peel with water and use on your silver to take the polish off with a soft cloth.

7) Meat tenderizer: Add a banana peel to your next roast and it’ll add just enough moisture to ensure that roast doesn’t get too dry.
