I used kaboom to clean my bathroom and it almost kaboom me instantly. I had to be rushed to the er bc my O2 stats was 48 and declining. I came extremely close to being put on the breathing machine. The doctor said if I would had waited a few more mins I would of died. I was that bad off. I was admitted to the hospital and in the icu bc of this cleaner. I think this cleaner need to re-evaluated or taken off the market.

albuterol is not a steroid, it is a beta-agonist.

I've had this problem for years and it's not specific to Kaboom. Some people with a particular allergy may react more strongly to it, but for me, I became aware of the problem using X-14 It had the most caustic stink. I was younger and healthier in general, so no ER or inhaler, but I later had a similar reaction when I decided to paint something with nail polish, and finally I realized most chemicals I inhaled would affect my upper respiratory system and sinuses and I would end up sick and hoarse and sore for three weeks. So I've been cleaning with hot water and e cloths for a long time. Even some of the ecologically friendly cleaners have scents that I react to, so I'm just destined not to have the cleanest home on earth. This doesn't make me happy, but it beats the alternative.

No we don't need any more hand-holding for people who simply fail to follow instructions. The bit on the label about "adequate ventilation" means "adequate ventilation." Tens of thousands of people use it without any issue.




Please read the label before you use any cleaning product. Because people don't read labels we also have people mixing cleaning products that cannot be mixed and then an actual real kaboom occurs, as reported every few months somewhere in the country




There's only so much hand holding that can be done.

This is a good approach - if one is very sensitive to scents and more, then changing one's tolerance of cleanliness is a pretty zen way to deal with it. After all, our modern day obsession with clean appearance (I'm guilty of it for sure) is way past the level needed for simple health and sanitation.
