My tip is how to get a fishy smell out of a cooler. I wash it out first with very hot soapy water and rinse well. Then I take a small lid and put about 2-3 teaspoons of vanilla in it. Place in the cooler and leave closed for a couple of days then just rinse and your cooler won't smell like fish anymore.

Vanilla works great for cleaning your microwave too. I put a small bowl of water with a teaspoon of vanilla in it and zap it in the micro for 2 mins. Let it sit for 5 mins and the steam removes spatters easily and the vanilla makes it smell great.
