This world came up and it's not in my dictionary or online. It was used in the context,

Yo los tengo limpiecitos y con amor los voy a cuidar

The passage is speaking of shoes. So I told my boy the sentence may mean, "I keep them shiny and take care of them with love." But I'd like to know what it really means. It's from a poem, Mis Zapatos.

Thank you very much Emotion: smile
So even names have their diminutive? I didn't know that, cross my heart ! Not all of them i think, just a few examples. Well as I say, you never know enough and you learn something from everybody. That's why I visit this forum. Emotion: star

limpiecito means "really clean, always clean". Using diminutive with adjectives adds force to the meaning.
Keep well!
People . . . it's "Q-Tips". I just bought some in Cabo. That is what I said on the box.

Correct . . . It is Q-Tips. I have bought them as well. Mystery solved.

Me acordé de un disco de juegos mexicanos que tenía cuando era una niña. Había una canción en la que alguien empezaba diciendo:


- Lara lara larito, tenía yo un Zapatito


y otra persona contestaba y agregaba:


- Lara lara larote, ahora es un zapatote. Lara lara larito, tenía yo un manguito

- Lara lara larote, ahora es un mangote. Lara lara larito, tenía yo un gatito

- Lara lara larote, ahora es un gatote. Lara la larito, tenía yo un _________


Como es un juego de ronda todos los que participan van sentados o parados en círculo y hasta había una variante donde se lanzaba una pelota para "retar" a otra persona después de decir "manguito", por ejemplo. La persona que se quede trabada sin saber qué decir, pierde. Me parece un buen juego para practicar el diminutivo y aumentativo. Yo lo jugaba con mi familia en carreteras o cuando esperaba en una fila larga. Ahora lo uso para burlarme de las frutas grandes que me encuentro en el tianguis o en el supermercado
