Is it ok to use the new Green Works cleaners if pregnant?

Ok I am pregnant again and I know you aren't suppose to use regular cleaners but what about the Green Works since it is plant based. It does still have a strong smell to it I can't stand even before I was pregnant.

    if your worried you can also make your own cleaners like organically using vinegar and i think its lemon juice and water.

  • You can use it, but if you can't stand the smell, stick to baking soda and vinegar.

  • You can use most cleaners while pregnant, you just need to (as you always should!) make sure it's in a well ventilated area.

  • Just like these ladies have said, just use any cleaners in a well ventilated area. Make sure you keep the door open and use any windows and fans to your advantage. I switched to Green Works and Seventh Generation when I got pregnant, and if nothing else, I felt better about it.
