What House Cleaners Are Safe To Use

Am 14 weeks. Recently used a bit of pinesol with warm water to scrub my kitchen floor, did not think of wearing gloves but did wash my hands after. Is this safe to use every once in awhile? And I've read not to use window cleaner during pregnancy but sometimes you need to. And what about air fresheners? Don't use it too often but its used in the bathrooms where I work at (work in an office) . I don't want to get worked up over nothing but so many sites say not to use certain products but we all have to keep our homes clean.

My dr said anything as long as the fumes don't bother you (same for painting, btw). I do use rubber gloves now whenever I clean with any product. I also told hubby he gets to clean the showers because I have really noxious, heavy duty stuff for them. I have not heard anything about not using air fresheners.

my dr told me the same thing as long as the fumes don't bother you and the room is well ventilated you should be fine. just make sure you open a window or something

certainly would not worry about it unless you are so surrounded by it that you get sick..that is what i have been told/read...in order for your baby to be hurt by it your blood really needs to be saturated with it..and you would know...i still use all of the household/painting products I always used to...always have and this is baby number 4...

Avoid anything that says "use in a well ventilated area". I just use a multi purpose cleaner and disinfectant, anything else i get the man to do

Merry Maids are the best cleaners to use LOL But honestly that is who I have cleaning my home. In between their visits I use Mr.Clean and soft scrub. No more commet due to the powdery stuff in the air. There are so many cleaners out there now that are not harsh in smell at all.
