Genius hack to make brown bananas yellow again

Genius hack to make brown bananas yellow again

It turns out that you don’t have to bin your brown bananas with this easy kitchen hack that restores them to a yellow colour again. 

In a viral video by YouTuber Brandon Queen, he shows the simple steps that accomplish this fantastic hack.

Brandon first starts by taking a rotten banana and putting it in a ziplock bag filled with rice to remove moisture.

“This is very much like the concept of putting a cellphone that has been dipped in water inside of rice,” he explains.

“The important thing is to make sure you get all the air out.”


He then lets the banana sit for an hour and then gets a hairdryer.

Setting the hairdryer to a warm setting, Brandon begins to dry the banana and the bright yellow colour beings to reappear.
