Common Household Items That Can Clean Your Car

Take a look at your bathroom or kitchen and you’ll be surprised how much of those you can use to clean your car. When you make use of items you have at home, cleaning your automobile is much easier and more straightforward. They are cheap, gentle and easy to use on your vehicle.

1. Hair Conditioner
A hair conditioner that contains lanolin in it will help clean your car easily. Plus, it leaves a shiny finish to your car’s surface, making it look freshly waxed. Your hair conditioner can make your locks look shiny, and it’ll do the same too your shoes, tools and car, too.

2. Cola
Unpredictable sunny-rainy weather can turn your windshield into a streaky and blotchy mess. Get rid of the dirt by pouring some cola over your windshield glass, but be sure to stretch a heavy absorbent fabric along the bottom part of the windshield to protect the paint of the car hood. The cola bubbles will simply fizz away the dirt and grime. Rinse thoroughly the sticky cola afterwards, or else you’ll end up attracting more dust and dirt.

3. Vodka
When the windshield-washer runs out, search through your liquor cabinet to make your own washer refill. Mix three cups of vodka, four cups of water and two teaspoons of dishwashing liquid. Shake it well and pour the mixture into the reservoir.

4. Wet Wipes
Wet wipes—you may even have this in your glove compartment. You can quickly clean your car windows, windshield, dashboard and mirrors with it. What could be easier than this?

5. Window Cleaner
Keep your headlights clean and bright (and yourself safe) by using a window cleaner to polish it clean. Wet a lint-free fabric with a window cleaner and rub it vigorously onto your headlights to remove water stains and grime.

6. Ammonia
If you have dirty windshield wiper blades, they will streak the glass rather than cleaning it and keeping it free from debris. Make a solution of one quart cold water and a quarter cup of household ammonia. Lift the blades gently and wipe both sides with paper towel or soft cloth soaked in the solution. Before lowering them back to their places, wipe them dry with a lint-free cloth.

Your car may be one of your biggest investments, but it doesn’t mean you have to spend a fortune to keep it clean. If the time doesn’t really allow for a thorough car wash, these household items can be your quickest solution until your next professional car washing in an automobile shop.


5 Helpful Tips for Looking After Your Baby’s Dental Health

Your little angel’s first set of teeth plays a crucial role in his growth and development. They serve as placeholders for their permanent teeth and also important for eating and speaking clearly. That is why caring for your baby’s dental health and keeping them decay-free should be every mother’s priority.

1. Brush your baby’s teeth every single day
It may be a hassle to brush your baby’s teeth, because more often than not they will resist and even throw tantrums on you. However, just like adult’s teeth, baby’s teeth require regular brushing. Use a baby finger toothbrush for easier cleaning and fluoride toothpaste that tastes fruity and sweet.

2. Avoid acidic food
Citrus fruits like oranges and lemons can be great sources of vitamin c, but they can also wreak havoc to your baby’s teeth. Other than the citrus, fruits in general have more acid content than vegetables, so try introducing vegetable based meals to your baby instead.

Additional tip: If you happen to add something acidic to your infant’s meal, brush their teeth before instead of after eating. The tooth enamel becomes temporarily softer after consuming acidic food, thus posing risks to teeth when you brush them immediately after eating.

3. Minimize Sugary Treats
Occasional candy treats won’t hurt, but too much can lead to tooth decay. It’s important to check the sugar content of any product when buying sweet treats. This way, you’ll be able to compare which one have lesser sugar content and is safe for your baby’s dental heath. However, we still advise to stick to natural sugars (if you must buy sweets) instead of opting for foods with high artificial sugar content.

4. Encourage chewing by introducing solids
Even if you can’t see any tooth yet, incorporate soft solids into your baby’s diet to encourage chewing. Start with soft chunks of veggies to prepare your baby for slightly firmer foods before moving onto solid foods once they are comfortable with chewing.

5. Have regular dental visits
Not only you are keeping your little one’s teeth strong and healthy, but you are getting your baby used to dentist environment. Regular dental check-ups from a very young age will benefit your child a lot. With being familiar of a dental clinic’s environment, your child will grow up not scared of the dentist.

After weeks of drooling and fussing, you finally noticed a little tooth popping out of the gums. Make sure to take good care of it from day one to encourage healthy development of your baby’s dental health.


What Do You Need to Do to Register Your Trademark?

Do you need help to protect your brand from impostors and copycats? Or do you want to prevent your company from infringing on a trademark? There are a lot of benefits to a registered logo or name, but the process can be tedious for entrepreneurs who are still new to the business. However, it is important to register trademark as early as possible to enjoy the protection of intellectual property laws.

Designating a Country (Madrid Protocol)

For international establishments that wish to protect their trademark here in the country, Singapore can be designated for international registration. This means that your trademark must already be a registered mark in the country or territory of origin before you can designate another country. The application is facilitated by the WIPO, and the documents will be submitted to and examined by IPOS. The entire process takes about 9 months if there are no objections.

Once the examination is done, the trademark will be published in the Trade Marks Journal so that the public can inspect it for two months. If there are objections during the examination, you can still create a TM by presenting all the requirements or giving the appropriate response within four months.

If there are no objections during the publication, the owner will be granted the certificate or Statement of Grant of Protection by IPOS, which is valid for 10 years. To enjoy the continuous protection of your trademark, you should renew the trademark registration before the validity ends.

Registration in the Country

When planning for trademark application, there’s a list of requirements you need to secure. Important documents to file your product name in Singapore TM registry include the following: name and address of the owner, graphical representation of the mark, list and classes of goods and/or services, declaration of the intent to use the trademark, and application fees.

Next, IPOS will examine and perform a trade mark search before a logo or brand name can be published in the Trade Marks Journal. For amendments in the trademark application, you will need to submit and fill out forms and pay the necessary fees and bureau charges. If there are no objections to the publication within two months, the owner will be issued a Registration Certificate valid for 10 years.

Registration Outside the Country

For companies in Singapore that want to register trademark in other territories, they must first register their TM at IPOS. This means that the mark must already have been granted the Registration Certificate.

To apply for intellectual property protection outside the country, you should file an international application via Madrid Protocol at IPOS. You will need to pay the administrative and WIPO fees, too. Next, the brand is reviewed by IPOS and then examined by WIPO’s International Bureau. If there are missing requirements, the owner will be given a deadline to submit them or to make amendments for the application.

If the requirements are complete, the trademark is published in the WIPO Gazette, a brand name registry, for public examination, and the owner will be given an international registration number. If there are objections or irregularities in the brand name recording, the owner will also be given a grace period to respond accordingly. How much the cost of filing a trademark varies from country to country.

Finally, the International Bureau will send the trademark registration to the designated country for another examination. If approved, the brand can enjoy the maximum protection and benefits in the designated country.
