  • not too sure

    im not allowed to use cleaning product for that reason, my fiance wont allow me...hes more paranoid than i am

    u can try some natural cleaners in the mean time...using vinegar works or going to the store and buying seventh generation brand or Mrs Meyers

  • I don't use chemical cleaners at all. They are unsafe for anyone. I clean with baking soda & vinegar. Vinegar kills germs just like any other cleaner would. I have been cleaning this way for 2 1/2 years now and would never go back. It is safer, better for the environment, cheaper, and if my daughter got a hold of the cleaner I wouldn't have to stress cause it isn't dangerous.

  • yes, it's pretty much the same as huffing. wear a mask if you must clean with something that has a strong smell.

  • Cleaning products will not affect your baby, however it isnt safe for YOU to be inhaling the stuff of touching it. As long as you arent mixing products(which IS highly dangerous) you should be fine. Bleach works best on everything and is completely safe.
