Hint 1: Dish Soap + Baking Soda
The next time your elbow grease isn't enough to scrub off baked-on food, sprinkle baking soda on top of your dish detergent to pump up your cleaner and add more friction to your scrubbing situation.
Cut, Chop, Mince and Puree anything from veggies to meat in seconds
Hint 2: Dish Soap + Vinegar
Add three drops of dish soap to a bowl of vinegar to attract those annoying flies in your home that are impossible to get rid of. The detergent will cut surface tension, so the flies will sink and drown.
Just toss the cup once your home is fruit fly-free.
