Chow items you use for something else?

Just wondering how many folks have found alternative uses for items that are normally asociated with cooking, prep or to be eaten?

I use:
Olive oil on the cutting blades of my electric razor
Turkey baster to remove automotive fluids captured in reservoirs
Candy thermometer to measure radiator thermostat opening temp

Of course, on the reverse side, I'm sure there are many non-food items that make it into the kitchen:
Digital multi-meter with K-type temp probe to accurately measure my drip coffee & espresso brewing temps
Toothbrush to clean my espresso maker's grouphead

What do you use? Keep it clean, it's a family show!
