Here some of my additions:
apple cider vinegar as deodorant (apply it out right or dilute with equal parts water).
apple cider vinegar as hair wash
vinegar as rust cleaner
Baking soda as hair wash
Baking soda supposedly whitens teeth
wood ash and water as dish soap (don't let it sit to long or it can turn into lye)

I've used olive oil almost exclusively to wash with for nearly two years now and find it to be the best overall body wash. It's not the cheapest, but it's healthy and a little goes a long way

Ha! I love that comment!

More good tips along these lines are in the frugality forum and the toxin-ectomy forum.

Deoderent recipe
Deodorant
1/4 cup baking soda
1/4 cup arrow root powder or corn starch
5 tablespoons coconut oil
Combine baking soda and arrow root powder in a bowl and mix with a fork. Start with about 4 tablespoons of coconut oil and add it to the baking soda mixture, working it into a paste. You can store the deodorant in a small, air-tight container or put it into an empty deodorant stick dispenser.

Slightly off topic, but most blenders use the same thread as do mason jars.
If you are buying a new bender, take a mason jar screw ring with you to see if it fits the blender.
