What cleaning products do you use when pregnant? I got the green works multi purpose cleaner because I figured it would be safer for me to use but the smell makes me sick, so I'm looking for a different option. I'm open to buying or making them, I just need something safe that isn't overpowering.

My cleaning products generally consist of sunlight, soap, water, vinegar, and baking soda.

I use an all purpose castile soap. I love it! Dr Bronner Magic Soaps 18 in 1 Hemp Eucalyptus pure castile soap. There are several varieties to choose from but this is my fave!

I mostly use Simple Green or just plain vinegar. I'm not a fan of using any kind of chemicals in the house with the kids but the SG is nontoxic. Smile

I've been using vinegar for my cleaning and so far it's working well and I'm not overwhelmed with the smell! And it's cheap, which I'm all for !

:lurk: The only cleaning that I do with chemicals that bother me is in the bathroom. We had guests coming over and all I had to use was Tilex, so I used it but MAN it messed me up for the rest of the day. The bathroom doesn't have a fan and the window was open but Tilex is POTENT. I can't use vinegar - I know I'm not to the point where morning sickness doesn't bother me like a lot of you are, BUT vinegar will make me vomit immediately. The smell of it is horrible to my nose.

I found that out the hard way. LOL
I do have some Simple Green now and that's much better to my nose and it's better if I have to stand around and breathe it in.
