Pin it Monday- From Bananas to Cleaners

Ok, so this week I did several small things from pins on Pinterest.  The first being this pin I found on making your bananas last longer banana pin (the link then takes you to here). They don’t really last that long around here because Hailey can eat her some bananas (like at EVERY meal…not that I’m complaining). I don't know about, but I prefer my bananas to be JUST ripe so they haven’t gotten to the point of brown and mushy…yuck! Anyways, the gist of the pin is that you wrap saran wrap around the stem of the banana bunch and it will make them last several days longer…I’m kinda meah about the whole thing. I guess it did make them last longer, but it was kind of a pain in the booty to keep the saran wrap on them. Needless to say, I’ve stopped doing it!

The second pin that has been repined like a million times (for good reason) is the miracle stain remover! This is the one from my Pinboard here .With kids of all ages (including the hubby) you have stains out the wazoo (well… we do). Take equal parts hydrogen peroxide and dawn dish detergent and combine in a spray or squeeze bottle (they say use the blue Dawn, but I have used several different ones and they ALL worked). This mix has been touted as being able to take out old stains as well, but I personally have not been able to get it to do that. I also saw someone saying to use it to clean your carpet…not so good on that either (I use Windex for that one). But all in all…I’ve been using this stuff on ALL our stains for months! With Hailey's stuff I wet the item, apply the stain remover and then rub it in...I can then let her clothes sit till I'm ready to wash them (which at times can be days). It works awesome and is SUPER cheap. Whoever thought this up originally out to be knighted or something.

Pin It!


  1. Hi Anissa. I'll have to try that with my bananas, but my family usually eats them as well. And definitely need to try the stain remover. Great tips! Thanks for stopping by from the mingle. Now following :) Have a wonderful day!
