-Turkey baster
- Microfiber cloth
- Starbucks cold cups esp. trenta (30oz) great for adding in plant bits while - cleaning moving things from one place to another growing plant starts in / with lid they are great grow out containers.

- Prime
- Small vac tube from Fluval used usually for the Edge tanks great to clean a messy feeding area without sucking out all the water in the tank
