I will sometimes use vim commands like ':set lbr' or ':set spell'. But how do I turn them off after they've been activated?

You can prepend no to boolean options to turn them off.

:set nolbr

You can also append ! to boolean options to toggle them.

:set lbr!

You might combine this with appending a ? to display the current value after toggling:

:set lbr! lbr?

Great suggestion for displaying the current value after toggling... –  Neg_EV Feb 8 '11 at 17:29

Try

:set nolbr

or

:set nospell

instead.

Do them as one word,

:set nolbr

and :set nospell.

You can also toggle with an exclamation point:

:set lbr!

will turn it on if it's off, and off it's on.

See :help :set for even more options.
