Tissues or Kleenex?

Eva's thread mentioned the "fridge." That came from the brand name, Frigidare. And often, we ask for a Kleenex, when we want a tissue. How many brand names can you think of which have become a part of every day vocabulary?

Down here, we call all soft drinks Coke.
Xerox used to be one, but no so much anymore.

Ziploc for any sandwhich style baggie

Tupperwear for any kind of plastic food storage

Edit - Scotch Tape - for any kind of clear tape
and
TV Guide, instead of program guide
