I work at a daycare and i bleach with bleach every night... has anyone worked with bleach daily while pregnant? I did not even think of the fact it might be bad for the baby. I dont wear gloves... I have worked nightly every day of the week since mid september

  • Is there a fan you can run? You can use kitchen gloves, or go buy latex or nitrile gloves at a drug store or Costco to protect your hands. Be sure to wash your hands immediately afterward either way. Makes sure to breathe in as little of it as possible. Is there anyone else who can at least pour the bleach for you?
    Good luck!!
