FOUR BUCKS?!? It's 2 in Daiso!

The branch in IMM is bigger and obviously stocks more stuff; haven't been to the Sembawang one. The one in Vivo is no bigger than PlazaSing, I reckon.

@ozchick: want to buy mine? it was THE last stock in Daiso PlazaSing. Still haven't used it :P


Yeah, I thought it was a bit rich too..... but if faced with no other options...

Yeah 'splatted' I should have done that. I don't buy much online but's better than searching everywhere. I'm gettiing one for $28! Don't laugh, I was at Jelita just now and the guy in the homefix store there showed me in his catalogue a model that's the rolls royce of lint removers , hopefully. And in Europe I imagine it will get a good work-out .Hopefully it won't fall apart when I clean it like the other one did! Thanks all for help / advice.
If I didn't know better I'd swear I'm not the only one who gets a 'buzz' out of the 'de-fuzz'! :P

Bumping this thread...

if ozchick's order didn't come through or if anybody else wants one of these devices, Daiso has restocked these but they now come boxed. They can be found in the toilet and bath section of the stores.

Does anyone know where to find just a regular lint roller, doesn't need to be a fancy gadget? I've checked out all the supermarkets and can't seem to find any!

Some NTUC's have them actually. Other supermarkets, likely so. Also, Ikea has them as well.

EDIT: Just read that she checked out the supermarkets. D'oh!

I get mine from diaso, and when they wear out and there are none at home, scotch tapes are pretty good and quick alternative :lol:

my 2 cents: for the roll on type, stick to 3 M.. I got some from Ikea, and realised it removed not just the lint, but much more .. it could even be used to skin a chicken :???: :???:

As for that Mustafa doesn't have it, of course they have it .. but, they have no clue where it is ... that place is a mess .. :D :D
