The Best Cleaning Products To Use While Pregnant

August 14, 2017

There are many things to do, and not do, when you or someone around you is pregnant. Nobody wants to be guilty of taking liberties with the life of an unborn child, or the safety of the mother, and there are certain precautions that we take to ensure that this doesn’t happen. One of the most frequently overlooked areas of caution during pregnancy is the cleaning products that are safe to use. Below are the best cleaning products to use while pregnant.

Cleaning Products To Use During Pregnancy

Baking soda

Baking soda has long been considered one of the best all-purpose cleaners around. From disinfecting to deodorizing, baking soda can safely be used in the kitchen, bathroom, or even inside the refrigerator without fear that you are doing harm to yourself, or absorbing chemicals that are going to potentially damage your unborn child.


Vinegar is another great, all-natural, harmless cleaning agent that works great as a carpet cleaner. Off-the-shelf carpet cleaning products are usually quite harmful. While they can be used if you take the proper precautions (i.e. wearing gloves and a mask), vinegar is just as adept at tackling those tough carpet stains and you don’t have to worry that you are using something potentially toxic to the baby.

Lemon juice

Lemon juice (especially when combined with baking soda) is another fantastic all-purpose around-the-house cleaner. This acid is tough on grease and grime but soft on your respiratory system and skin. Everything that you take in while you are pregnant has the potential to be taken in by your baby, so you want to make sure everything your skin touches and absorbs is as safe as possible.

Vinegar and water

Window cleaning products (such as Windex) contain chemicals which are useable while pregnant, provided you are properly protected, but are are ideally ones you would like to stay away from. Luckily you don’t have to go your entire pregnancy without cleaning the windows. A simple solution of vinegar and water is an effective window cleaning product that is as harmless as it gets.

You want to minimize your exposure to most cleaning products at the best of times, but especially when you are pregnant. If you are worried that you are not going to be able to keep your home as clean as you usually do for the next nine months, fear not. The above cleaning solutions are harmless, effective, and will provide you with the peace of mind that you are doing everything necessary for you and the baby.
