Faaaaaaaaaabulous!


I’m sure you’ve all noticed how much I love using the word FABULOUS.

But not just fabulous as in fabulous.

No, it has to be faaaaaaaaaaaabulous, or it just doesn’t cut it.

There is something about adding all those A's that give the word more emphasis and drama.

I don’t know how or when I started using fabulous, but I can’t stop saying it.

Even if I hate something (like brussel sprouts) I say, "I hate them faaaaaaaabulously!"

And it’s funny because whenever I type it out in an email, a blog post, or the comment section of either my blog or someone else’s, I can actually hear myself saying it out loud in my head.

The other day while I was in the grocery store, I walked down the household cleaner aisle to grab some dish washing sponges, and out of the corner of my eye I saw something that made me stop dead in my tracks. It was a product I had never seen before.

And I think it was DESTINY that I found it.

Okay, I mean how appropriate is this item for me?


FABULOSO – with long-lasting fragrance.

Could you just DIE?

Well, as you can imagine, I grabbed it off the shelf and began reading the front and back labels; trying to find out what this cleaning product was for. Basically, it was for cleaning ANYTHING: counter tops, bathrooms, walls, floors, even fabrics!

This product is multipurpose (I even used a Q-tip and tried cleaning my ears with it).

However, it didn’t say anything about using it on hardwood floors (which I have in my apartment), but I thought that if it was gentle enough for fabrics, it couldn’t be harmful to wood flooring, right?

It came in three scents: Lavender, Passion of Fruits, and Ocean Paradise.

So of course, I had to open each one to see what they smelled like.

Notice in this next photo how I circled “Child-Safety Cap.”


HA! Child-Safety cap? They weren’t kidding because not only could a child NOT open the cap, but neither could a sumo wrestler holding a stick of dynamite in one hand and a hand grenade in the other.

OMG…it took me SEVEN hours to get it open. I was half tempted to just take my grocery cart and run over it a few times, just to get the friggin-ass cap off.

Well, I finally did manage to open it, and decided that the lavender scent was the one I was going to purchase because I adore the aroma of lavender.

After I got home, I went on a cleaning frenzy and began wiping down everything and anything in my apartment; from top to bottom. I felt like Joan Crawford in Mommie Dearest during one of her vodka and tonic mid-night cleaning raids.

"Christina...BRING ME THE AXE!"

And I gotta tell ya folks, I LOVE this stuff! It not only cleaned everything thoroughly (including my hardwood floor), but it made my apartment smell like a lavender field in Kent, England.

I have only one word to express how I feel about this cleaning product.


So, if you start to notice me saying fabuloso in my comments rather than fabulous, you’ll know why.

And don't be surprised if you even smell a touch of lavender.


Have a faaaaaaaaabuloso weekend everyone!

    Ay, caramba, Ron, what a faaaaaaaaabuloso post! As soon as I read about your experience I ran to my kitchen cabinet and there it was--a half empty (half full?) bottle of the infamous Fabuloso!


    It's been there since I first moved in two years ago and I don't think I've ever touched it. But now I'm going to use it to clean the walls, wash the floors and scrub the bathtub. Hell, I'll even take a bubble bath in the stuff!


    I have "Fresca Lavanda," which sounds like an exotica Spanish dancer and luckily the bottle's already open so I won't have to bother my neighbor the sumo wrestler.


    I'm so excited I just can't wait to start cleaning! And that's a first, i can assure you.


    Muchas gracias for the great cleaning tip, my dear amgio, and tener un gran fin de semana!

  3. I will let you into a little secret. I'm always reading posts and comments out to Mo, and she always asks, "Who's that?" and I tell her, or I say "You wouldn't know them". When I read your comments out to her, she asks who it is and I say "It's Faaaaabulous!". She knows exactly who I'm talking about :)

  4. I love the way you write because it's like having a conversation with you. I can hear the inflections of your voice and I enjoy your posts because of it!

    It's funny, but I have seen that product at the store, but the lettering and something about the bottle made it look generic to me, so I passed it by! I will give it a second look now.

    They put that cap on because the stuff looks like grape koolaid! Keep it out of the fridge, Ronnie!

  5. You've even got me saying fabulous.... haha. Not seen any Fabuloso in our shops but if I do I guarantee I will buy it. I do hope you don't make a habit of putting it in your ears, you never know what damage you could cause in that delicate area.


    Thank you for the Friday smile, it made a lovely change from district nurses and tubes and ... LOL I won't go on.

  6. Hey there Rob!

    "As soon as I read about your experience I ran to my kitchen cabinet and there it was--a half empty (half full?) bottle of the infamous Fabuloso!"

    OMG...you're freakin' kidding me?!?!? How FUNNY is that!!! I had never heard or seen this item in the store before, so when I spotted it I knew it was MEANT to be.

    "I have "Fresca Lavanda," which sounds like an exotica Spanish dancer and luckily the bottle's already open so I won't have to bother my neighbor the sumo wrestler."

    Bwhahahahahahha! CRACKED ME UP!!!

    And yup....that's the one I have. The bottle is written half in Spanish; half in English.

    "and tener un gran fin de semana!"

    And that's because you two are so HILARIOUSLY FAAAAABULOUS that I can't contain myself.


    Honestly though, you two CRACK ME UP! And one of these days when I come to England to visit, you've got to take me to Kent so that I can see and smell all those lovely lavender fields.

  8. Aw...thank you, Bijoux :) I try to write how I talk.

    " I have seen that product at the store, but the lettering and something about the bottle made it look generic to me, so I passed it by! I will give it a second look now."

    You're right, it does look generic. Like something you would see at the Dollar Store. I think I paid $2.99 for it, so it's very inexpensive, but REALLY good.

    "They put that cap on because the stuff looks like grape koolaid! Keep it out of the fridge, Ronnie!"



    HA! Will do! I saw a video the other day over at You Tube on this product and the person who made the video said exactly that.

    " I have seen lots of it growing at a stately home here, in Yorkshire :)"

    Excellent! So then when I come to Yorkshire, I will see them! I truly love the scent of lavender. Especially fresh lavender.

    Glad you had a laugh this morning. :)

    I had so much fun putting this post together.

    "I've seen this cleaning product at Publix before but never thought to pick it up and look closer. Now I will. The lavender sounds like something I would enjoy because I like the smell of lavender too."



    You've seen it at PUBLIX? (I love and miss and Publix). It's an awesome product and I love the way it smells. YUMMY!


    It took me FOREVER to get that last photo because I took it in front of a mirror and practically every photo came out with the camera blocking my face - HA!

  13. "Yup, looks JUST like grape kool-aid. Probably the reason for the friggin ass childproof cap."

    HAHAHHAHAHA! You're right, Mel! In fact, I watched a video clip over at You Tube this week in which the person who made it did a SPOOF on accidentally drinking it.

    "..and WOW that you'd clean your ears with the same product you clean your shower and floors with. LOL"

    Yes, and I may even try washing my HAIR in it this weekend - HA!

    " I love multi purpose cleaners! Less clutter is a good thing."

    Meeeeeeee too! Less clutter.

    "I obviously need to get me some of THAT. NOT that I'm fond of lavendar..."



    Try the Ocean Paradise because that was my second favorite. The other one smelled too fruity.

  20. Ron, I got a kick out of this one. Seven hours to get the cap off -- seriously?? My word, they weren't kidding when they said it had a child-safety cap, were they?
    I, too, love the scent of lavender. I think it's very restful. But since you've proven that Fabuloso works so well, perhaps you need to go back to the store and invest in a bottle of the Ocean Paradise -- that sounds heavenly!
    Have yourself a fabulous weekend (you're still celebrating your birthday, aren't you??!)

    How did you know that Kent, England is renowned for their lavender fields? Shoreham, in particular, has stunningly beautiful ones. There's even a lavender festival in Kent: http://www.hopshop.co.uk/events/lavender-festival.php

    "Seven hours to get the cap off -- seriously?? My word, they weren't kidding when they said it had a child-safety cap, were they?"

    HAHHAHAHAHAHA! Yeah, don't you love my SLIGHT exaggeration?

    "I, too, love the scent of lavender. I think it's very restful."

    Me too, but you would amazed at how many people don't like the scent of lavender. That's one of the essential oils I have to be very careful about using during my Reiki and Reflexology treatments because many people don't care the aroma. But I have found that most people do like the aroma of eucalyptus oil, so that is one essential oil I will often use.

    "invest in a bottle of the Ocean Paradise -- that sounds heavenly!"



    That was my second favorite sent, so I may try that one next time.

    Ron, no one describes things quite like you. How do you think of this stuff? You should be writing comedy for movies and tv.


    This product looks like something you would drink, so that's probably why the cap is so hard to get off. The color looks like grape Gatorade.


    Dude, seriously a funny post!

  64. Yup, looks JUST like grape kool-aid. Probably the reason for the friggin ass childproof cap.
    And wow that you happened across the product in your adventures! Wow that you clean with a little yellow sponge...and WOW that you'd clean your ears with the same product you clean your shower and floors with. LOL I love multi purpose cleaners! Less clutter is a good thing. Only I've seriously never found one that stands up to the job.


    I obviously need to get me some of THAT. NOT that I'm fond of lavendar... And I certainly ain't fond of housework. But I DO think himself could benefit from a bottle of that. I mean, look at YOU after using just a half a bottle in that wee space of an apartment you have!!!!
    Uh huh........need to get my hands on a bottle of that and see if I can help himself can find that kinda HAPPY. ROFL


    You have a fabulooooooso birthday week weekend, sir. :-)

  65. Oh Ron, I laughed so hard at this post that the guy at the next desk asked me what was so funny. As one of your readers said in their comment, I love the way you write because I can hear you talking. You write like a conversation.

    "I was half tempted to just take my grocery cart and run over it a few times, just to get the friggin-ass cap off."



    Fabuloso! You are hilarious! You should be writing comedy for TV.


    I've seen this cleaning product at Publix before but never thought to pick it up and look closer. Now I will. The lavender sounds like something I would enjoy because I like the smell of lavender too.


    Thank you for making me giggle this morning, Ron. I will come back and read this again during my lunch break. Have a faaaabuloso week!


    I love that last photo of you.

  66. That was a faaaaaaaaabuloso post. I have the same feeling for the word Shiiiiiiiiiiiity not just shity but shiiiiiiiiiiiiity. How do you feel? Shiiiiiiiiity,
    or how does that smell ~ Shiiiiiiiiiiity. I, unfortunately did not have the opportunity to spot any thing on the shelves of the supermarket that contained that phrase. But the clerk who did ring me out had a Shiiiiiiiiiiity attitude. I love your photos and Ron, like always you made an old man smile.
