is is safe to use basic cleaners like clorox disinfectant wipes and lysol when your preggo?

I am 11 weeks preggo and i like my house to be clean, clean in a well ventilated area, but should i also be wearing gloves? Am i just being over cautious?

  • Its not a bad thing you are over cautious with chemicals. I wouldnt worry about it unless you're using things like oven cleaner or chlorox and then I reccomend you also use a mask or have your husband do those things. But if you're more comfortable with gloves and a mask I would say just use them:)

  • And by Chlorox I mean the sprays that you use as degreasers or in the shower...the wipes are fine:)
