Fabulosa cleaning spray EXPLODES into a ‘fireball’ while mother tidies her living room

This is the shocking moment a bottle of cleaning spray exploded into a fireball in front of a mother and her son after reacting with dust on a radiator.  

Samantha Drury, 34, was using the Fabulosa spray to clean her living room when an inferno erupted and blew out the glass in the front window of her home in Hull, East Yorkshire.

Three CCTV cameras captured the moment the sudden explosion caused £6,000 in damage and set fire to the sofa and carpet.

The mother and son screamed in shock as two hanging baskets swayed on the front of the house.

Fragments of shattered glass were left on the drive way and Samantha’s son’s clothing was singed.

She said: ‘It was an unbelievable experience that you never expect to happen.

‘I was just cleaning around the living room. I used it on the window, windowsill and then on the radiator, which was switched off.

‘I’d pulled the sofa out to get to the window then all of a sudden it created a fireball.’

Luckily, Samantha only suffered minor burns but the explosion caused £6,000 of damage after smashing through the window and burning the sofa and carpet.

She said her son was stood behind her and the sofa shielded them both from the brunt of the flames. 

She said: ‘My son was behind me and his clothes were damaged as well. I was stood behind the sofa so I think that saved me.

‘Thank God the window blew outwards or I dread to think what would have happened.’

She said she blamed the explosion on the ‘highly flammable’ spray mixing with dust to cause friction.

‘Looking back, we think it happened because it’s highly flammable and it mixed with dust, it caused friction and the fire evolved from there. It just came up like a wave over me.

‘People online were and are still recommending using the spray on radiators and people need to know that it’s not safe.

‘Luckily, everything that was damaged is replaceable but God forbid one day it could kill someone.

‘Never in a million years would you expect that to happen.’

In a Facebook post about the incident she added: ‘The radiator near by was not on, there were no candles lit in the house, my sockets were not affected and electric did not trip out. Everything happened so quickly and could have been a lot worse.’

The Fabulosa air freshener packaging says it is a ‘concentrated disinfectant’ which can be used as for ‘long lasting freshness’ in homes, vehicles and clothes.

A spokesperson for Fabulosa said: ‘Our customer’s health and safety is of utmost importance to us and we take any reported incidents seriously. 

‘We have contacted the customers concerned so we can investigate.

‘Fabulosa and its packaging is fully compliant with all safety regulations on how to safely use them and any associated risks. 

‘In line with this, our Shock Can states quite clearly that it is extremely flammable and it should therefore be kept away from heat and all sources of ignition.’
