Heed Fabuloso Warnings

Before using Fabuloso products, read the instructions carefully. This strong-smelling cleaner is intended to be diluted. When used at full strength, the scent can be overwhelming to sensitive individuals.

In addition, wear gloves when using Fabuloso and avoid contact with your eyes, as it can cause irritation. If it splatters in your eyes, rinse with water for 15 to 20 minutes. Contact lens wearers should rinse for five minutes before removing their contacts and then continue rinsing for another 10 to 15 minutes. Keep it out of the reach of children and pets and if exposed or ingested, call Poison Control for information about further treatment.

Do not heat Fabuloso to make your home smell good, as it can release chemicals in the air that can irritate your lungs, especially if you suffer from asthma or COPD. Do not mix it with other household cleaners either. If you are exposed to fumes, move into fresh air and thoroughly ventilate your home by turning on exhaust fans and opening windows. After cleaning your home, wash your hands thoroughly and launder your clothing.
