Handy items to take that are not on the kit list

Got everything I need from the kit list, but I was wondering if anyone had any tips on handy things to take down that are not on the kit list.
A friend informed me a hands-free kit for my phone is a good idea, as then I can call home whilst doing kit etc. He also suggested an Ironing board cover, for doing your white shirts.

Been a busy few days, trying to get myself prepared for Raleigh in under 2 weeks, but I think Im getting there :)

Anything else anyone can suggest that will be handy??

I'm not sure if they are already on the kit list or not, but I heard lint rollers where a handy thing to have. And you can buy them at the NAFFI when you are down there if you run out :)

Vanish whitener in a spray bottle.
Pack of cheap tooth brushes for cleaning stations.
If you have trouble sleeping, ear plugs; 30 men snoring can drive you insane especially when the only thought is, "its 2am and I'm still awake!!"
If you can, go to a surplus store and buy a few pairs of thick black socks, as what my class found, they will literally vanish after you take them off.
I cant remember the name of the polishing cloth (I'm sure someone here will, cream coloure and has different texture on one side....think it begins with a L) but get a few of them as the cheap yellow dusters are useless and make a mess.
White marker pens (kinda like tipex, but not) and black markers.
If I remember anything else I'll tell you, other than that, enjoy!

Cheers for that!! I just added all this to my already long, long list of things to do before I go.

Thanks to everyone else too. I knew there would be some items that would be a great idea to take that wouldnt be on the offical kit list.
My CA told me to take, Dubbing, I think it was. I have no idea what this is or where to get it?! can anyone help me on that one??
Cheer guys.

Stuff you spray on the seams of tents to waterproof it I think? Or is it the stuff you rub on football boots to waterproof that? Would make more sense it being the football boot stuff.

You DON't need dubbing.

P.S. I would love to see you doing the seams of a tent with it. :roll:
