I recently took apart my blender after ages of just rinsing it out with soap and water, and I was glad I did. There are tons of places for pureed fruit and juice to enter and slowly rot. There's simply no other way to clean these things than to take them apart every few uses, which isn't that much of a hassle. I'd probably add microwaves to this list, amazing how nasty they get.

Although I haven't tried this as much with wine, I can confirm it can be a blessing for an overly-strong cup of coffee. Many people water their coffee down using dairy or other products, so they make their coffee stronger to compensate. However, since I drink mine black it's way too strong. Like with an overly-alcoholic wine, the coffee "burns" and distracts completely from the underlying flavor. Even better with coffee is that watering it down is so similar to the process of brewing in the first place that it doesn't ruin the balance as it could with wine. For wine, it seems like buying a wine with a lower percentage of alcohol would be the best bet. With spirits, I bet water would be most interesting since they're so alcoholic.
