Bathroom Smells. To help get rid of 'bathroom' smells, instead of using air fresheners, try striking a match, (regular not safety) sounds strange but very effective.

Doggy Smells. To get rid of the smell on your dog, instead of using expensive dog shampoos, use a tomato (i personally use tomato puree in the same way as you would use regular dog shampoo) this will rid your dog of its smell for about six months and your dog will love you for it.
A dogs smell is the reason why some dogs will roll in about anything that smells different to itself, so by getting rid of its natural smell it won't have the urge to roll in anything.
Relax, your dog won't smell of tomatoes, it won't smell of anything, can also be used on your self if you have a strong body odour.
p.s. A VERY IMPORTANT p.s. if your dog has light hair, i wouldn't recommend using puree, as you will end up with a pink dog, unless you want to spend a couple of hours rinsing him out, fortunately the dog smell will still be gone.

remove the strong odor of onions from your hands, hold a stainless

Smelly hands. I keep the lemons and
limes that have been squeezed beside the sink, the main use is to rub
on my hands after processing fish or any other foods. You can use them

STINKY HANDS. I was
reading about those smelly hands and all you have to do to get the
onion smell off after you get through cutting is use a drop or two of
dishwashing liquid and a little salt and rub for just a bit and rinse.
Also if you are cutting an onion and bell pepper, cut the onion first
then the bell pepper and rub your hands just a little with the pepper
and no need to do anything the pepper does the trick. For shrimp smell
use a little lemon juice and a little salt and rub and rinse. ~~ D Kelly

Removing odors from hands. To
get rid of onion or garlic smells from hands, wet your hands in running
water and then rub your fingers and palms briskly on the silver metal
of your sink faucet. If you have a stainless steel sink to rub your
hands on, that is even better. Wash hands normally afterwards with hand
soap and water. -- Judy jcarra
remove bad odors from your hands, such as onion or garlic, rub your hands in used
coffee grounds. I learned this from a perfume store that had a bowl of
coffee grounds to rub into your hands after trying the different
scents. It works for almost any odor. Then, of course, to remove the
coffee smell, you'll need to use soap and water! -- Kelly
removing onion, fish, or whatever smells from your hands. No need to buy any fancy gadgets or metal stones.
Turn on the faucet, wet your hands and run them back and forth along
the water spout (using wringing motion). After a couple of passes, you
will find that your hands now smell fresh and clean. -- Patti
Getting pee out of kids clothes My son has a problem about wetting the bed i have
found that if you take your regular washing stuff and add a
can of cheap cola to your laundry it takes the pee
smell out. It also works great on getting greasy stuff out of
clothes just let the clothes soak for about 30 mins. for both and when
you dry them they will not come out smelling like pee. ~Sabrina~ Michael Matthews

Kitchen Sponges - A little Oxy- bleach will kill the smell -- Orin
in House Fire: To
get smoke smell out (or skunk smell,) I have found that the
only thing that works is taking clothes, etc to a dry cleaner
that has an "ozone room." They do not dry clean the clothes --
they put them in a room with these hydrocarbons (or
fluorocarbons, not sure which it is) and it removes the smell.
This is the only thing that worked for me when a skunk got in
the basement of a rental home & sprayed. -- LMN
