  • clorox like bleach? Yes you should wear a mask and only use in a ventilated area and try to avoid it all together. Hair bleach some say yes some say no.

  • I have to use it.. I have a daycare and it is part of the state rule that I soak all toys that can be put in water in a bleach/water mixture... When I use it I put in it the bathroom where there is a vent fan and hold my breath when I am in there dumping the bleach and then close the door and don't go back in till the smell is gone! I just can't avoid it, and I don't like using it while I am pregnant but I don't have a choice..

  • Does the state allow chlorine-free disinfecting? The same result can work with peroxide and a vegetable based soap. You can also steam disinfect toys in a dishwasher.

  • you can also disinfect with vinegar water too, but i don't know if your state would allow it. you could check it out, vinegar water doesn't even have to be rinsed off the toys! good luck!

  • Bleach is bad for you, pregnant or not. There are plenty of other options out there for disinfecting and cleaning that is way better than bleach.
