Sure, bananas grow in bunches, but should they stay in bunches? Never! Bananas release gases which cause fruits (including other bananas) to ripen quickly. Separating them will keep them fresh longer, so separate those bananas and place each in a different location.

Of course, if you have a few less-than-desirable bananas laying around, you could always put them to good use, even if they're not the freshest fruit in your home. Turns out that bananas contain potassium, which is also a key ingredient in shoe polish. To polish your shoes, all you need to do is rub a banana peeling on your shoes, buff with a soft cloth, and then sit back and admire your shoe polishing job.

Fantastic, right? Check out a few other fun, banana-related posts here on DIY Life:
