Use in home health cleaning.
Best Uses
I am a R.N. and do home health care and private duty in people's homes. The last place I was a live-in, taking care of my Mother. She had dementia and had very limited ability to walk. I got her a bedside commode. (It was plastic with very large round legs and feet. One can adjust each leg separately, in case floor is not even.). <br /><br />Not wanting the house to smell, I got the lavender Fabuloso and diluted it about 1:5, one part Fabuloso and five parts water. We would clean potty chair bucket, then spray from a labeled spray bottle into the bucket, only about two sprays. Then swish it around and then pour it down the drain. Put the chair back together. And there was no smell.<br /><br />My mother and I have very, very good noses, and once dry, could not smell anything! I am allergic to chemical/fragrances, and at full strength it bothered me - as attic attacks. Diluted, it did not really bother me.<br /><br />Make sure the spray bottle is labeled and both Fabuloso bottle and spray bottle out of reach for children and adults with dementia.

Use caution with this product
It Cleans But Strong Odor
Makes You Skin Crawl
Best Uses
Although this is a strong cleaner, when used in an elevator with short nap rug, use it sparingly and diluted. It actually caused my skin to flush and I can stand next to highly volatile chemicals without incident. It actually caused cold sweats. The cleaning people just pour it onto the rug and walk away. Talk about brain dead!
