9 wildly clever ways to use fruit

9 Insanely Clever Ways to Use Fruit

Make a candle ... out of an orange! Cut the orange in half, leaving your new "wick" intact. Soak the inside of the peel in olive oil for three minutes. Beautiful!


So, what can you do with a watermelon (besides eat it)? Make it into a fruit bowl!

Don't settle for regular ice cubes. Pop some small berries into the tray before freezing and voila! Your water has a bit more flavor.

Freeze your grapes for a delicious snack. You can also use them to chill your wine without diluting it.

Need deodorant in a pinch? Use a lemon! A lemon will keep you smelling fresh for a few hours -- but you definitely don't want to use it right after shaving.

Drink apple juice before bed. Apple juice has been reported to give people more vivid dreams.

Banana peels can be used as a natural teeth whitener.

Pineapple juice can be used as a cheaper alternative to cough syrup. Pineapple juice can also make your semen taste sweeter.

Fruit is pretty awesome, huh?

If you make a candle out of an orange please make sure that the orange is secure from rolling/tipping over. The picture used in this does not look safe at all.

Look at the video, the wick is that long stringy thingy in the orange on the opposite side of the navel.....careful with where your mind is going. Peace
