This Looks Disgusting, But You Can Actually Polish Silver With Banana Peels

Inheriting the family silver collection is great, but by the time great grandma's goodies make their way down to you, they're probably looking a little worse for the wear. You could go to the store and buy pricey polish filled with dizzying fumes...or you can just buy a banana.

That's right, banana peels are surprisingly effective at getting all that tarnish off your precious metal. It might not look great while you're scrubbing, but the sparkling result will have you convinced.


Bonus: you get to snack on a banana! Polish and potassium all in one yummy fruit. Who knew?
