      J'ever try something that you read in a magazine, or overheard in the ladies' room, or got from great aunt tillie that you just had to try, but ended up with disastrous, but gut-bustin' results?  Ever fell victim to that home remedy  that everyone "swears" by that has been passed down through countless generations?  The only difference was when you tried it, you ended up with results that should have landed you the $100,000 grand prize on "America's Funniest Videos?"

      Well, here's the place to share your "pain!"  This blog has no time limit, so whenever you happen upon it, please add your story so that we can all have a good laugh.

        • Mine was in college.  I’d heard that bananas were a great hair conditioner and thickener, after all, one of my favorite shampoos was banana scented and it made my hair thick and healthy.  So at the urging of two of my friends, I mashed a couple of bananas, applied the mess to my freshly washed hair, wrapped it in plastic wrap and went to bed (‘cause I figured, the longer it was on, the more beneficial it would be, right?  heh heh heh).

          The next morning, my first clue that I’d made a “little mistake” was the stench coming from my pillow.  I guess heat and mashed ripe bananas didn’t quite mix.  Also, just in case you didn’t know, bananas leave irreversible stains on material, so if there hadn’t been a smell, I still would have had to throw away the pillow and pillowcase because of the awful brown stain on them.

          Then came my hair.  Oh, it was thick all right! So thick in fact that it took two hours of washing to get the mess out of it. And another month of still finding stray banana pieces in my hair.  For the rest of the semester, I was known as “banana juice head!”  Juvenile, but appropriate.  estatic

          Your turn!

        • teeky3- that is gross! My mom made us snort salt water up our nose when we had a cold. She swears by it & does it almost daily to keep her sinuses clear but I can’t handle it! It burns like a mother!

        • I decided the best way to shrink my tummy was to wrap myself in plastic wrap and go to bed. I awoke the next morning to the gray-est, itchy, funky smelling skin ever! It took a few days for my skin to turn brown again! It scared the crap out of me, lesson learned! ohhhh
