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?

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 more
