Add just a small amount of bleach to your dishwater. It's a great germ killer and it helps remove stubborn stains from your Tupperware and the like. Removes stains from your hands too if you're a gardener.

Editor's Note: Be cautious about mixing bleach with other detergents, especially ones that contain ammonia as it can react with bleach to cause a caustic gas. Check your ingredients first to be safe. Clorox recommends using a bleach solution as a final sanitizing rinse in a clean sink.
