White vinegar and bi carb is awesome for lots of cleaning. I use it to get grubby hand prints off the walls

Use bicarb when you shampoo after a chlorine swim, stops hair getting that shiny green look

to clean a really dirty thermos or bottle put rice and water in it & shake.
Never put any milky drinks in a beer glass, it leaves a film on the glass, unless you wash it in REALLY hot water.
run a load of vinegar in your washing machine softener part to clean it out.
Put a little bowl/tray of bi-carb soda in the fridge & cupboard to absorb smells
Bananas near any other fruit - it will ripen them quicker (or use it to ripen fruit quicker hehe)
Onions near potatoes (they ripen each other!)
Eucalyptus oils is good for anything sticky.
I have more but can't think of any more right now!

If you have a textured bench (ie. textured laminate) and there's stains on it from spices like turmeric, or old coffee stains etc there's a very easy way to get it off.
Put some water on the surface and pour bi-carb onto it. Make a slurry by using your fingers to mix the water and bicarb, it should be like a paste.
Then massage the bench top with your fingertips until the stain is gone. Usually doesn't take long, it works as a gentle exfoliate and hasn't yet failed me with red wine stains, turmeric stains, or coffee stains that DH has left on the bench under a chopping board for a day or two without me noticing!
Should it not clear away straight away, let the bi-carb sit for a minute or two (add more water if you need to, to prevent it from drying out while it works it's magic) and then start rubbing it again.

use an emery board to sharpen your tweezers, it makes them almost like new

If you get oil or grease on clothes put dish washing liquid on it as the molecules mix and will remove the stain straight away.
