Here are a few household tips you may want to try. 

Put an apple in potato bag to keep them from budding.

To ripen avacados, put in brown paper bag with a banana overnight (or more).

Peel banana from bottom up to eliminate strings.

Use Efferdent (denture cleaning tablets) to clean narrow glasses and bottles etc. Just drop in water and let sit and shake.

Put castor oil on your hair before you shampoo it. Leave on for a little while. (my grandmother had gorgeous hair)

Make the most of oven heat: always bake a couple of things at a time.
