It’s impossible to avoid all cleaning products. Pregnant women can limit their exposure by wearing a mask and wearing plastic gloves while cleaning. If the weather permits, keep windows open while cleaning for good ventilation. If you can’t open a window, then use a fan. According to the American Pregnancy Associate, “most cleaning products are safe to use during pregnancy” – even bleach. Some chemicals may make women uncomfortable so it’s recommended they use baking soda, vinegar and other alternatives.
