sensitive during pregnancy. An allergy caused by some cleaning
product is the last thing you want to deal with. That is why wearing

wearing a mask.
dangerous chemicals - a lot of cleaning products out there hold a
certain risk for a developing baby’s health. For example, solvents
(varnish removers, oven cleaners, paint thinners) should be avoided
at all costs. To be on the safe side, you can also exclude anything
labeled with ‘toxic’ during your cleaning efforts.
to green cleaning solutions - there are plenty of recipes that you
can utilize to clean your home while pregnant, without any risk
whatsoever. There are numerous cleaning recipes out there that
involve baking soda or vinegar as main ingredients. The good thing
about them is that they are not only safe to use, but also quite
effective at various home cleaning chores.

your husband and have him deal with certain cleaning chores. No one
would be mad, as such physical activity may indeed become too
difficult for you to carry out all alone. Members of the family
should help you whenever possible, or you can try booking a cleaning
service if you want.
during pregnancy is not a strictly forbidden chore, although you must
be careful in how you deal with it. Be cautious when using certain
products and don’t overwork yourself.
