Price-wise, it is slightly high, but this one gets the job done by simply spraying the grease and wiping it off after.

Limescale isn’t harmful, but if left unattended to, it does admittedly form an unsightly buildup over time. When it starts taking over your tap handles, pipes and other plumbing fixtures, you might perhaps make do with lemon and vinegar and hope for the best. Or you can look for the help of a German brand instead.

This limescale remover differs from other brands because it works faster than your usual citric acid solutions. You’d also have to do less descaling in the future too, since the solution also works to slow any future buildup of limescale.

6. Bedroom cooling fabrics for $50.20

In hot tropical Singapore, sometimes the air-conditioning just isn’t enough. You roll restlessly in your bed, wasting your sleep time away with fruitless attempts at flipping your bedsheets, trying to find the cool side. This bed sheet comforter, meant to be used underneath the regular sheets, might help you say goodbye to those restless nights and hello to a good night’s sleep. 

The cooling fabric that these are made with help regulate temperature so that it is always just cold enough to be comfy. They also come with products made with the same material that help cater to different niches, including one that lets you wrap it around your pillow for a similar effect. 

They even have double-sided blankets, with a cooling side and a waffle-textured side in case the cooling side is too cold for your liking.
