  • You maybe are having an allergic reaction?

  • Either an a allergic reaction or a reaction to mixing chemicals. If you're not feeling better tomorrow call the advise nurse just to allieviate your worries.

  • U should probably see your OB or at least call them about your coughing, but as for the baby, I wouldn't think so, unless u do clean like this alot. The placenta filters out of that stuff.

  • Here is some stuff I use to be able to clean my house......

    ..1 tbsp of Borax powder (find it in the laundry aisle of your supermarket)
    3 tbsps of white vinegar
    2 cups of water
    1 tablespoon of dish soap
    1 drop of essential oil such as peppermint for fragrance (optional) Then put it in a spray bottle, mix it up.
    For windows, use white vinegar wiped down with newspapers, and to disinfect toys and other kids' products fill a spray bottle with non-chlorine bleach (3% hydrogen peroxide) and wipe with a paper towel.

  • If u like the fresh veggies or fruits or like the organic stuff heres another cleaning I found on the net.. The vinegar in this spray has natural anti-bacterial properties, while the lemon juice is a natural astringent. The solution works to both breakdown and clean off pesticides.
    1 cup water
    1 cup distilled white vinegar
    1 tbsp baking soda
    1/2 of a lemon
    Combine all ingredients in a large container. Transfer to a spray bottle with a pump. Spray mixture on produce and let sit for 5 minutes. Scrub and rinse.

  • Stop using chemicals. If you are interested message me and I can email you some ready-to-go documents of homemade cleaning recipes including antibacterials. I teach a community education course on green living and it includes a series on housekeeping, so I have the handouts saved to my computer and am always happy to share them.

  • Those chemicals may have combined and burned your throat. I have had reactions to bathroom cleaning products too. I would do so far as to hold my breath for as long as I could, clean, run out of the bathroom and gulp in air. Weird, I know, but I kept from breathing the toxics in .

  • Do not use that product unless you can open a window. You got bad side effects from that.
