An INFP who enjoys watching sappy Korean dramas in her free time. Good food and cute dogs are all she needs.

We previously covered the five must-have items for homeowners to lead a comfortable and upgraded life but ever since the pandemic, sentiments have been shifting and Singaporeans are now getting more hygiene-conscious.


A survey of nearly 2000 Singaporeans done by Bosch revealed that 86% are willing to spend more on home appliances with strong hygiene functions and aside from price, hygiene functions are now the most important considerations!

So, here are five useful items all homeowners should get to achieve a hygienic safe haven.

Check them out below!

#1 Bosch Serie | 8 Washing Machine 9 kg 1400 rpm

Bosch's latest washing machines in the Serie 8 lineup features two specialised hygiene functions, the ActiveOxygen and AllergyPlus.

The ActiveOxygen technology helps to eliminate up to 99.99% of germs and bacteria even at low temperatures and is used to pretreat laundry when the cycle starts and once again before the final rinse. This eliminates any existing germs and only requires 30 more minutes than a regular wash. With the AllergyPlus feature, 99.99% of bacteria at 60°C can be removed using regular detergent in the recommended laundry load of 4kg which means it's tough on germs but gentle on clothes and skin.


Since doing the laundry is part and parcel of everyday life, why not invest in a washing machine that is efficient yet has the added benefits of strong hygiene functions as well? You will be able to have peace of mind knowing that your clothes are thoroughly cleansed to remove any bacteria you bring home from the outside.

#2 Zinus Cooling Green Tea Gel Memory Foam Mattress

The Zinus Cooling Green Tea Gel Memory Foam Mattress is one to consider getting.

Infused with green tea extract which is a natural antimicrobial ingredient, this mattress will give you a clean and comfortable space to sleep on as it slows down the accumulation of odour and bacteria. The cooling foam is also great for Singapore's hot weather as it contours to your shape and resists body heat to regulate your temperature all through the night.

The best part is how affordable the mattress is for its quality!

#3 Refresh Wellness World's First Collagen Vitamin Shower Filter

The Refresh Wellness Shower Filters come with chlorine absorption balls to eliminate rust, dust, unwanted metals and 99.9% of bacteria in the water!

You will be able to enjoy a cleaner and more refreshing shower every day as the filters are lightly scented and come in different variations ranging from lavandula, cherry blossom, manuka honey and more. There is also a pure unscented option great for those who have sensitive skin.

The main difference is the scented ones contain collagen and vitamin C while the unscented version does not. Both help to remove chlorine, heavy metals and other harmful substances in the water but the scented versions moisturise and soothe your skin and hair better.

The scented filters last up to one and a half months while the unscented filter lasts for about two months.

#4 Dyson Pure Cool Me™ Personal Air Purifier Fan

Engineered to improve air quality, the Dyson Pure Cool Me™ Personal Air Purifier Fan projects filtered air  while keeping you cool at the same time.

As everyday items in our homes release potentially harmful microscopic particles, the sealed filters in the fan help remove them from the air around us. Combining an activated carbon and glass HEPA layer, the filters capture gases and 99.95% of ultra-fine particles from the air so you will only be breathing in clean air.

Built-in reminders let you know when a filter change is needed, the LCD screen lets you see your machine's status and the 70˚ oscillation delivers airflow through a 70˚ range.

Choose from three sleek colours - white/fuchsia, black/nickel and white/silver.

#5 Xiaomi Mijia Robot Vacuum

This one is perfect for lazy homeowners as you won't have to lift a finger to get your house cleaned. The Xiaomi Mijia Robot Vacuum is a device that can do both sweeping and mopping so you won't have to physically clean the floor by yourself anymore!

The Intelligent Water Tank controls water level precisely during mopping so it won't be too slippery and the Infrared Deceleration Sensors slow it down when there is an obstacle to avoid collision and this protects your furniture.

You can even control the device via your phone! This smart robotic vacuum is affordable and comes in a minimalist white colour that will fit right into any home.
