I'm with you, JoJo! My hubby bought me these bags. I keep thinking, if leaving fruit out in the fresh air isn't going to get rid of the gas, how is closing it up in a bag with the gas going to help??? OK, I tried 'em. Fresh bananas on Friday, not a mark on them, and nice and firm. Put 'em in the bag, sealed it up. Opened it up Monday. Smell of over-ripe bananas would knock you down! Still nice and yellow, not a spot or mark on them, but so mushy and soft you couldn't even peel them, and the taste was very strong, just like a regular brown banana. Haven't tried anything else in them, just got some more produce to experiment with, but I know for a fact Bananas don't work!!!
