Eat the banana then use the skin to polish leather shoes and handbags, they buff to a fantastic shine and will last about a month, then leave the skin around roses in the garden for healthy leaves.

from knives and hands etc., rub with a lemon, leave for a few minutes then rinse.
Half a lemon
rubbed over draining boards and sinks will kill germs and when rinsed and buffed produces a good shine. Also leave around the taps for five minutes and it will help remove the limescale that builds up.
A pinch of carb
in water when cooking greens will keep the colour of the veg.
If you have run out of washing up liquid or washing powder a tablespoon of carb will clean the dishes and wash clothes. It also helps to remove any limescale built up in the washing machine.
