  • It's not bad for you at all! Just follow the same mantra that you should at all times when using any cleaning substances: make sure you're in a well-ventilated place!

  • Yeah, you should get something all natural like Seventh Generation cleaning products :)
    They're perfectly fine to use when pregnant, and are even sold at babies r' us.

  • Some books I have read say that when you are cleaning to be in an open room with a window or a fan because chemicals can make you sick. I do not think that it is physical or mentally damaging to the baby unless you are sniffing it everyday!!!

  • im going to assume you are just cleaning with it so yes its fine just make sure you are in a well vinted area while using it. Its more of the smell thats going to make you sick i dont think its a issue for baby or atleast in many of the books iv read.

  • I used Windex and more while pregnant with both. While an organic product is going to be best for you, baby and the enviroment I do not expect you to go buy new cleaning products before you clean your bathroom lol. I was a clenaing junkie while preggers withthe little one so I made sure I opened every window and turned ont eh exhaust fan in evey bathroom even if I was cleaning the kitchen. keep it well ventilated and turn ypour head away when you spray.
