15 weeks pregnant. Used lysol cleaning wipes to clean bathrooms. No gloves. Had room fan on, and no windows. Is this ok? Wipes also contain peroxide.
Cleaning products: Lysol wipes are safe and peroxide used topically is safe as well, i'm not aware of any pregnancy warnings. The fan is helpful and if there are fumes, the window should be open. There are however lots of natural cleaning solutions that you can make yourself that would be safer. ...Read more
I am about 5 weeks pregnant and just did quite a bit of cleaning (without gloves or a mask) with lysol disinfectant wipes. Should I be worried?
No: Lysol disinfectant is a safe product, even if you did a lot of cleaning!. It may cause eye irritation if you get some in your eyes, and possible skin irritation if you have sensitive skin. There are no known cancer causing ingredients and no known dangers if inhaled to the degree you would be exposed while cleaning, so you and your baby will be fine. Wear gloves if you have skin irritation tho'! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I am 37 weeks pregnant and just cleaned the kitchen with Lysol and paper towels and completely forgot to wear gloves. How bad is that for the baby?
I have used both Lysol & Clorox wipes for cleaning & on body & skin daily for years. Am I @risk for getting cancer?
Probably not, but: soap and water is much better for cleaning skin. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
Cleaned flat stove top off with lysol wipe after spilling juice of raw meat. Cooked on it and forgot to wash lysol off. Could smell. Will fumes hurt?
No: at that small amount of exposure I would not be concerned especially if cooking in kitchen and not in any enclosed space. If any eye, nose, throat, chest irritation that does not resolve in 1-2 hours or gets worse, see your doctor. Hope this was helpful. Best of luck. Dr. R ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If often wonder if I use lysol disinfectant wipes or some time of clorox cleaning spray, if I wash my hand after can I finger food? Safely
Yes: Lysol is a perfectly good agent to eradicate the virus that causes hand/foot/mouth disease. The bigger trick is to get all the surfaces that a child may have touched covered in your cleaning regimen. Good luck! Take a break now and then and sit and cuddle and read a book to your sick child. the bathtub will still be there when you're done! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My idiot husband gave the kids Lysol wipes 6&3 will it harm them? Because of the chemicals on it.
Brief exposure is ok: If only on skin surfaces, brief exposures are ok, but it's best to use wipes made for skin. There are probably 5 different kids of Lysol wipes, so one would have to read the labels to see what's in them. The most common wipes likely have alcohol, similar to any hand sanitizer gel. Wipes made for skin will likely have gentler ingredients or gentler amounts of the ingredients. Diaper wipes are ok. ...Read more
