Sample All Layers

A number of tools offer this option, including the Healing Brush, Clone Stamp, Blur, Sharpen, etc. This option (found in the Options Bar) introduces flexibility to these tools that would otherwise alter the pixels of the layer you're working on. With the Sample All Layers checkbox selected, you can add a blank layer above the image and clone (or heal or blur or sharpen…) and the results will appear on the blank layer, leaving the Background untouched. That way, if you don't like the results, you can delete the contents of the layer and start again, or simply lower the opacity of the top layer so that the original starts to show through. This allows you to lessen the effects of the tool, taking advantage of the non-destructive nature of this method.
