As part of our ‘fix or fiction’ series, we’ve already investigated whether peanut butter can remove chewing gum from the sole of your shoe. For the second video in the series, we’re looking at a new myth; can banana skins polish shoes?

Watch the video to find out…

 

As you can see, we found that old wives tale to be a myth. Maybe it was the shoes, maybe it was the banana, maybe you’ll have more success. But for now, we recommend you stick to good old polish if your shoes need some TLC.

Check our Fix or Fiction series on the video page.

Things you need to know about Over 50s life insurance:
Premiums stop after your 90th birthday but you still enjoy cover for the rest of your life. In the first year, if you die from natural causes we will refund any premiums, or if you die as a result of an accident, we will pay your cash sum. After the first year regardless of the cause of death we will pay your cash sum. Depending on how long you live, the total sum paid in premiums may be more than the cash sum payable on death. If you stop paying your premiums before the end of your policy your cover will stop 30 days after your missed premium and you won’t get anything back. This isn’t a savings or investment product and has no cash value unless a valid claim is made. Inflation will reduce the buying power of your cash sum in the future.
