Now that bubs is born, should I be going natural with the products I use to clean my home?

  • I dont think there is a “should” about it as such.
    Just be mindful of surfaces that your bub will be crawling on and able to reach, etc.
    I work with special needs children and the interesting thing that we have found is a lot of the “natural” products are really bad with kids that have seizures and those with sensory issues. Vinegar is really bad. Even though we can smell it they can and it causes total melt downs and anger issues.

  • It would be the last thing on my mind! But reducing/eliminating harmful chemicals is good at any time. I think the more important things would be products that directly affect baby, like soaps, lotions and maybe how you wash clothing/ sheets etc.

  • I only use natural products. Most clean just as well and don’t have that horrible chemical odour.

  • I agree, it’s totally up to you !

  • I think it’s entirely up to you. If bub’s not touching the stuff I don’t see the issue.

  • If you think it’s important then try it. But i would also advise not to stress yourself over it – eg if you’ve run out of your natural cleaning product and don’t have time to make more, then don’t worry about getting out the old pine-o-cleen.

  • It probably is a wise idea but ultimately you should do what works for you.

  • I’d use as many natural products as possible around my child. I use Ecoworx which is very natural. I’ve even sprayed it on my dog and accidently sprayed it on my face. Never had any reaction to it. Just make sure that whatever your child will be on or near needs to be safe for them

  • It’s always good to go natural !

  • It’s up to you, but if you want to give it a go why not.

  • Sure why not – great for the environment and great for bub and you!

  • You can try and go natural I know I didn’t worry but it’s up to you

  • I guess it’s up to you if it’s something you’ve been thinking of, why not. It ends up being much cheaper to clean the old fashioned way with vinegar!

  • I didn’t with any of mine and I haven’t noticed them suffering from side effects

  • nope don’t think its matters

  • it is up to you – I use natural out of personal preference and there is a lot of natural products freely available.

  • I would just to be on the safe side.

  • I use natural cleaning products, but that’s a choice I made for ourselves and looked into what to use that was kind to the environment and to us. That being said – I’ve used Exit Mould and bleach a couple of times to shift bathroom surface mould. I think you do what’s best for you and your family. Going natural works for us, but it’s not for everyone

  • If you feel like you wnt to switch then go for it.
    I only use chemical cleansers for the bathroom and toilets. Otherwise it’s just a cloth and hot water

  • If you can, you certainly should. In saying that, I still have a long way to go before I’ve fully switched to natural products.
