KONK has been our family staple since 2013 (Yikes, sounds like a long time!). On days when we forget to use KONK, poor Bubba has become at the receiving end of those horrid mozzie bites which are awfully huge. So these days, I ask the helper to liberally spray KONK in our rooms as well as the living room before she heads to bed.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetI’ve gone to recommend KONK to several friends and really, when you have young ones at home, you don’t want them inhaling toxins in the products that you use. It’s good to know that KONK is non-poisonous for the humans and safe for the environment. This is one deal you don’t want to miss if you don’t already own a starter kit for KONK! This is your entry into a whole new life with KONK! 🙂

Screen Shot 2015-11-18 at 11.03.26 pmGES PLUS is Our Lifestyle Shop’s latest product and we recently tested it with results that really worked! No more slow-flowing water down the drains also meant less water wastage and savings for the home in general.

IMG_8980If you wish to test the new GES PLUS product as well as KONK, this deal has your name written all over it! A little goes a long way so use sparingly.

Screen Shot 2015-11-18 at 11.10.48 pmI used to have a love-hate relationship with hand sanitisers because while they serve the function of keeping my hands clean, they are also drying to my hands. And then we discovered Safe Hands and there was no turning back! We have a bottle of these in the room, in the car and sometimes stashed in our bag. Bubba’s school use them on the kids so this is definitely good stuff even though its a little more pricey than the usual brands you get out there. Remember, it doesn’t dry out your hands, so technically, you spend less on hand creams then.

Screen Shot 2015-11-18 at 11.12.11 pmAnd if you wish to have a clean home this festive season, then this bundle deal is for the clean-and-neat! Bubba’s school also use the B-Sanitized to disinfect their toys and furniture so we know it’s also safe to use it at home.

And if you still can’t quite decide what to get that opt for the Starter Kit for S$99.60 with the best products under their roof (KONK, Safe Hands and B-Sanitized), you definitely won’t go wrong this.

Alright enough talk now, I’m off to examine those deals from Our Lifestyle Shop and to stock up on the much-needed items for the home. Don’t wait, offer only available from 24 November to 29 November 2015.

No more choked drains with GES Plus at home

[Sponsored Review]

IMG_7695
It’s been 2 weeks since we put GES Plus to use at home. What sort of results are we looking at? First of all, I was surprised how easy it was to actually use the product. Hey, if I can use it, it must be easy! All I needed to do is simply pour approximately 1/2 cap of GES Plus directly to each sink and/or gully trap (drain) and leave it overnight.

If you find leaving it overnight a little challenging, I guess you can leave pour GES Plus in the day provided that no one utilises the taps and sink for a good 6 to 8 hours for the solution to work its magic.

IMG_8978For existing conditions such as odours (yikes!) and slow water flow, you will need to repeat this for 3 to 5 days consecutively to help soften/ remove debris from the pipes and thereafter, once a week for maintenance.

Why choose GES Plus when I guess you can choose the off-the-shelf slightly cheaper alternatives available in the supermarket?

Well, for one GES Plus releases millions of beneficial bacteria (lost to caustics, bleach and antibacterial products) scientifically chosen for their enhanced ability to digest grease, fats, oils, proteins, starches, detergents and other organic wastes that accumulate in drain pipes, septic tanks and drain fields. This 100% biodegradable formula works fast to replenish natural populations and contains a powerful odor counteractant to freshen the lines & system while it is working. In an easy-to-pour bottle, GES Plus will help;

  • Reduce build-up on pipes
  • Replenish beneficial bacteria populations
  • Protect drain fields
  • Reduce odors

IMG_8981

What it really means for you and your home?

  • Fewer blockages due to grease, sugars and starches in the lines
  • No more nasty, sewage-like odors when you run the shower, water taps (whilst brushing teeth, shower)
  • Eco-Friendly, Chemical Free, Safe to use, Non-Toxic

IMG_8980When we first started using GES Plus, we did see some slight improvement the next day and water seemed to have drained off faster than it usually did. I decided to use it a little more regularly for the next 2 weeks to help clear our the pipes so as to improve the drainage system further.

Now when I see water draining a lot slower than before, GES Plus to the rescue! So quick and effective to see water draining faster than before. I also really like how this biological product helps to eliminate grease in the drainage system for our home, safe on all plumbing and best of all, harness the power of ‘Mother Nature’ to clear slow-flowing drains naturally.

The Man now thinks I’m a tad bit nuts going to all the toilets in the house and pouring the GES Plus down the sink. But because there has been improvement in our drainage system which is why I’m convinced this product works. No more physical unchoking of the man-hole now! Yay for that!

Don’t forget that there’s still time to enjoy this special offer fromOur Lifestyle Shop for this product:

Keeping your drains clean with GES Plus

[Sponsored review]

As an Ambassador for Our Lifestyle Shop, I’m really thankful to be exposed to different kind of environmentally-friendly products that we could use at home. Now with Bubba and the fur-kid around, I do try my best to create a safer environment for them both. This means using less of those chemicals that could do more harm to them then good.

Our absolute favourite products to have around the home has definitely got to be KONK as well as SafeHands. KONK has helped kept mozzies and most creepy crawlies away. During the dreaded dengue period, I’m thankful that Bubba hasn’t been that badly bitten. We use KONK rather liberally on a daily basis. If it keeps the mozzies away, then obviously it must be working! As for SafeHands, I really do love it! Unlike most commercially available hand sanitizers, this is not drying to the hands. Best part, Bubba’s school use it for all their kids in school. So obviously, they know what a good quality product is as well.

IMG_7695Recently, I was gifted the GES Plus from Our Lifestyle Shop for the purpose of this review. It’s a little different from the products that I’ve been testing and reviewing but to be honest, this product definitely came in handy!

You see, we’ve been staying in our place for about 4 years now. Just the other night in the shower, I noticed that the water flow to the drain has been quite slow. I was going to tell the Man to look into it and perhaps it was time to ‘yikes’ <for the lack of a better word> service those drainage pipes.

And then, GES Plus came along! This biological product helps to eliminate grease in the drainage system for your home, safe on all plumbing and best of all, harness the power of ‘Mother Nature’ to clear slow-flowing drains naturally.

We started using GES Plus for the past 2 days and I will use this product for the next 2 weeks to see whether my water drainage system improves. Stay tuned for the next follow-up post with a special offer for my readers. 🙂

It’s easy to get SafeHands!

[Sponsored Review]

Before Bubba’s arrival, I was busy reading up and stocking up on hand sanitizers. There are many brands available in the market and I got them off the shelf. The only problem I had with some of the popular brands available out there is with prolonged use of the hand sanitizers which are very often alcohol-based, my hands became really dry. My manicurist even remarked how dry my hands have become. So I went the organic route trying to search for the perfect hand sanitizer to keep my hands clean but haven’t quite found one that I liked.

IMG_0714Our Lifestyle Shop to the rescue with the trio pack of SafeHands sanitizers that Su-Lin recently passed on to me. I’ve been waiting for them to launch this for a couple of months now, so I was really pleased when Su-Lin passed me not just one but three different SafeHands sanitizers to try!

IMG_0718SafeHands is the number 1 brand in consumer friendliness and is super safe for children. You’ll have none of the negatives that’s associated with alcohol-based hand sanitizers. This is important because multiple daily usage of alcohol-based hand sanitizers can leave hands red and cracked. There came a point in time when I was sanitizing my hand pretty often with these alcohol-based hand sanitizers that my hands felt really dry. I eventually ditched sanitizing my hands altogether for a while to give them a break. This was not ideal obviously because I needed my hands to be cleaned and preferably germ-free when I’m handling Bubba.

IMG_0722SafeHands is available in a bundle pack of Cucumber Mint, Clean Linen and Unscented. Size-wise, it’s a lot larger than I packed the Cucumber Mint into my diaper bag and headed out to test it out.

IMG_0725Coincidentally, how cool is it that the Cucumber Mint matches my new mint-green diaper bag!

IMG_0952And the Clean Linen one even matches our Diaper backpack! Hehe..

IMG_0875
SafeHands kills 99.99% of germs, yet is gentle to the skin with a pleasant fragrance. The germ-killing activity actually increases the more frequently the product is used throughout the day. It is alcohol-free and contains a moisturizing agent to keep the hands feeling soft and clean with every use. Again, another important factor as I don’t have the time to constantly slather on hand lotion these days. Plus when I’m holding Bubba, I don’t really like to put on too much hand lotion as I’m afraid that she might end up licking the lotion. What I really liked about SafeHands is that it kills germs without stripping away the skins natural oils. Therefore, it never leaves the skin dry. I think this should be the new standard for instant hand sanitizing – no more dry hands please!

IMG_0758Pardon the mess but here’s how we put SafeHands to good use. I guess anywhere and everywhere. Cleansing or sanitizing our hands before and after our meals. Even though the bottle is larger than usual brands, it wasn’t too difficult to lug it around. As you can see, I just placed it in the side-pocket of my diaper bag so that I can easily access SafeHands as and when I need it. Given it’s slightly larger size, I liked how it can be shared with the family at our weekly dinners. I just whipped it out and my sis chimes in to my nephews the importance of sanitizing their hands before dinner. They then come to me and whip out both their tiny hands for me to dispense the foam hand sanitizer on their palms. Just one pump is sufficient enough to sanitize both of their hands. No wastage and no need to use more than its needed.IMG_0876

And did I mention, how fresh the Cucumber Mint SafeHands sanitizer smell? I wish you could have a whiff of its scent off the screen. The Man’s fave is the Clean Linen one which also smells great but my fave of the lot is the Cucumber Mint. 🙂

Sponsored Review: Putting B-Sanitized™ to use

[Sponsored review] :

Many have asked where Bun will be sleeping when she arrives. Well, we started out with really good intentions, we wanted her to sleep with us to be close to her and check on her obviously. Then when we shared what we were going to do, friends who are parents started sharing their side of the story and gave their advice. So the Man and I, we laid our cards and discussed sleeping arrangements for Bun. In an ideal world, if it works, then great. If not, we always have a back-up plan and we don’t mind just using that if it works.

So for now, Bun will be sleeping in the guest-room which will double-up as a nursery until she turns about a month or so and we do up minor renovations for the home. The idea is for her to have a room that’s really close to us. But of course, plans may change along the way, so again, we are going with the flow for this one.

Her room for now is pretty bare, ‘cept for her essentials and her cot. Shelves are also bare with minimal decor items as we want to keep her environment as clutter-free as we possibly can before the books/ toys and randoms flood the shelves.  Plus the Man has always been the neat freak among the 2 of us.  Hehe..

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 presetDecided to put the B-Sanitized™ product gifted by Our Lifestyle Shop to good use since I had the morning free while the Man went for a game of golf.

Using the B-Sanitized™:
There are 2 ways which you can use the B-Sanitized™ product either the Total Release Fogger method or just the manual spraying method.  The latter is a rather quick way of disinfecting your surfaces to clean and sanitize them.  It will certainly come in handy when we need to santize surfaces or some of her toys to keep it germ-free occasionally when Ben is here.

On the other hand, the Total Release Fogger, which does a proper job of sanitizing and disinfecting all surfaces of the entire room effectively needed a little more work and advance planning ahead.  So I decided to document the process if you are interested to find out who cleaning a room quickly can be done.

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

First, turn off ALL ignition sources such as gas valves and open flames.  The last thing you really want when using this product is to cause an explosion in the home.  Cover exposed food, dishes and food handling equipment (if you are using it to sanitize your kitchen or living room).  Open cabinets and doors to area to be treated.  Shut off all fans and air conditioner and close all doors and windows.

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 presetI laid newspapers in the centre of the room so that the particles from the can will not leave a stain on my wooden floors and for easy clean-up as well.  IMG_6103Point valve away opening from face and eyes when releasing.  It’s said that one unit of this can spray can be used for 6,000 cubic feet of unobstructed area.  Also, do not remain in the area during treatment and ventilate thoroughly before re-entry and using the room.  Here’s how it should look like when the valve/ mist is activated correctly.  I quickly snapped a pic and then closed the doors for it to work its magic in the room.

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 presetOperating the valve did take us quite a while to figure it out, so I thought I will share with you a close-up shot of how to do this.  To lock the fogger valve for the Total Release Fogger method, you will need to press valve button all the way down and then hook in the catch.  You will know it’s activated when the mist is dispensed from the can continuously.

Hope the step-by-step guide for the Total Release Fogger helped you. I’m sure you also have other questions regarding the usage of this product so the folks over at Our Lifestyle Shop very kindly compiled a list of questions and answers regarding this that will put your mind to ease when using the product:

  1. How do I use B-Sanitized™ for the home?  The trigger on the aerosol has 2 settings. By fully depressing the trigger, it locks down and allows the canister to fully dispense and fog/fumigate all exposed surfaces in the room. It can also be use to disinfect surfaces if used as a spray.
  2. How long does it take? If using the Total Release Fogger method, the product will dispense fully in about 2 or 3 minutes and it’s highly recommended to leave the room empty for about 2 hours for this will allow all the fine mist droplets to dissipate and fall to the ground where they can no longer be inhaled. If using the spray method, then it will sanitize surfaces within 5 or 10 minutes.
  3. How effective is the product after I sprayed it? B-Sanitized™ is designed to remove any germs already present but it also leaves a fine residual antimicrobial coating which will last a few days.
  4. Where can I use it? Almost anywhere! B-Sanitized™ is ideal for classrooms, nurseries and offices.  In fact anywhere where people congregate.
  5. How often should I use it? This really depends on the environment you operate within. The more people passing through the place will increase the chances of new germs entering that environment.
