Household Cleaning Products Safe for Pregnancy
Many say that during pregnancy, women begin to nest. During this phase, moms-to-be instinctively turn to their homes to clean and organize in preparation for the baby on the way. Of course during this time, expecting moms should be especially cognizant that the products being used are not effecting mom or baby. Unfortunately, some of our favorite cleaning products come along with fumes, direct toxins, or residue that may cause more problems than solutions. Better Life cleaning products offer non-toxic alternatives that can allow moms to keep cleaning while avoiding the toxicity that comes along with typical household cleaners. Chlorox Green Works is also a great alternative if you’re used to using their brand of cleaning products.
You want to avoid ammonia based window and surface cleaners. Solvents and ammonia in these cleaners may help to keep your home looking clean but in the interim you ingest toxic chemicals that are better off avoided. Instead try Better Life’s “I Can See Clearly Wow”. Made from all natural and safe plant based ingredients (meaning no alcohol or ammonia) glass is cleaner, streak-free, and this product is safe for flat screen TVs and other electronics that can be damaged by traditional glass cleaners.
Better Life’s “Oak-E-Dokey”. This all natural and safe wood furniture polish helps leave wood looking great and protected. Naturally scented using essential oils of cinnamon and lavender, after using this product you’ll wonder why you ever used anything but it on your wood.
Bleach is a tough one. On one hand you want the powerful solution but on the other, you know bleach cannot be good for you. For cleaning shower stalls, fixtures, etc. try scrubbing these surfaces with Better Life’s “Even The Kitchen Sink”. Because it is bleach free it won’t scratch expensive fixtures but will get the job done, the healthy way.
Last but certainly not least is a must-have. Better Life’s “Whatever” is truly for whatever. This powerful multi-purpose cleaner spot cleans carpets and fabrics and a little more. Whatever is so ubiquitous that it even works in the oven. When was the last time a lysol wipe did that?
By going green inside your home, you can make sure your home is not only a clean one–but a healthy one before and after your little one is born!
