I never knew you could clean dish sponges by putting them in the dishwasher. I had just been throwing them away. .
you can do toothbrushes that way, too (especially good if people in the house have been sick...) You can microwave sponges to kill bacteria, too.

With regard to the self cleaning oven. If you have birds make sure you ventilate the house well. The fumes can kill birds. Also never self clean the oven prior to thanksgiving or any other important meal. The self cleaning oven feature can be hard on the oven, and you don't want your oven dying right when you really need it.
I was shocked when my Mom told me that my pillows needed to be washed twice a year. I had no idea. I always assumed that the pillow case being changed weekly was clean enough.
Wow. I have never done this! Maybe I should...
