Cleaning:

Use toothpaste to clean the fridge, it also leaves a nice clean smell.

Tip No 1: Saving Electricity.

Attach a long piece of string to the end of your bed and the other end to the toilet seat. Then in the middle of the night simply slide the cleft of your buttocks along the piece of string until they connect with the toilet seat thus saving £££££'s ($$$$$$'s) by not turning on the lights.
