Is it safe to use household cleaning products ie dettol and flash around a new born baby?


  • I am scared after reading that ingrediants in these products can cause cancer and asthma
  • I personally wouldn't use most sprays. Even Pam is a problem for asthmatics. However, you can use whatever cleaning products you are accustomed to until the baby is crawling. After that, I would just use 10 drops of Dawn Dishwashing detergent in a bucket of warm water (put it in after you fill it) and use that. Much safer for baby and cleans your floor. I actually use it all the time since I have kitties.
