Do you think you know what awful smells like?

You don't if you never smelled Fabulos.   It is the most nauseating Hospital smell ever . IT also seems to premenantly infect anything it get a near for life.

If anyone has any suggestions to remove this evil sleep from an object please let me know because I think I am going to have to throw the stuff away.  Even the metal.chair I used some.diluted fabulous holds the sent after repeated re washing and airing out in the sun for a week

How can any one stand this over powering hospital smell?  The crap doesn't even work any better than.other similar priced products.

  • Are you having a stroke?

  • Probably .  I don't tell the doctors this but I think I had a couple mini ones before.

    We use it at home and at a cleaning job. Floors only. I like the smell.

    It smells exactly like a hospice ward.  It doesn't even clean all that well. Not better than anything else in the price range.  It smells so toxic though.

    Maybe wash whatever it is in vinegar.

  • I tried that!  Several times.  It over powers the vinegar.  It is actually a marvel of modern chemistry how tenacious this hospital like stink is.  I am actually thinking of trying bleach.

    Have you tried adding baking soda to the vinegar mixture?  And, someone said apple cider vinegar does a better job than regular vinegar .. I don't know.  Bleach can be brutal .. but I hope that helps.

  • Nah because baking soda and vinegar together doesn't actually do.anything .they just neutralize each  other.  I.don't mind bleach smell and at least bleach isn't dangerous once it is rinsed and or diluted.  I mean it is safe to add to.drinking water.

    Bleach? If you can smell it, it's bad, bad, bad. (I can smell it in our city water. I don't cook with nor drink it.)

  • Being able o still.smell it isn't bad.  You ever use a cistern?  You add bleach to them and you  an get a slight whiff of it.  Perfectly safe when diluted and gasses off anyway. This post was edited by Benedict Arnold at April 11, 2019 10:54 AM MDT

    Read this and decide. I used to be a chemistry teacher.

  • I already know the chemistry of urbane what ate the safe and recommended levels.  Besides I never said I wanted to smell bleach in the water or coffee pot.  I am trying to neutralize a residual odor and residue from a much more dangerous and toxic chemical. Fabuloso.  Look at the toxicity report of that stench you liked. It is horribly unsafe product.

    I am talking about running it through the machine to try and break down or oxidize the remaining chemicals in the machine.  Several rinse cycles and some days to gas off perfectly safe since it is already diluted when I ran it through.

    I respect your knowledge as a HS chemistry teacher but at the same time I also had  chemistry HS teacher  melting Iodine is impossile because it sublimates at normal atmospheric conditions.  Which is true it does,  it is however easily possibly to melt Iodine crystals into a liquid before total sublimation with enough heat under normal atmosphere.

    Why do you mention iodine?

  • This doesn't show any evidence or even state it is unsafe to have noticeable amounts of bleach in your water.  4 PPM in water would still have a slight noticeable smell of chlorine to it as it gasses off.  All you posted was a sales pitch for water treatment equipment.

    MSDS for Fabuloso.

    You are 100% totally correct.

    I had an uncomfortably bad experience in a hospital and I remember the custodial staff saying they used it.

    About a month after the hospital, I walked into a gas station mini mart and a scent invaded my soul - -  and I asked the employee, "Do you use Fabuloso to clean your floors?" 
    She gave me a strange look and said, "Yes, we do."
    The smell immediately had sent me back to Bad Land.

    I absolutely detest the smell of that stuff -  simply, and most likely, because of the association with the hospital experience.
