Vector identities in quantum mechanics

The overall problem is to prove that [L^2,[L^2,\hat{r}]]=2\hbar^2 {L^2,r}

I feel I am very close to solving this problem but I need a quantum version of the vector identity ax(bxc). Because the relevant vectors are operators that don't commute, there is a problem.

Does anybody know of a source of vector identities that don't assume commutation?

Thanks
