Right before my little girl started crawling, I moved all my cleaning supplies from the bottom of the pantry to the top of the pantry. I knew that I had quite a few very toxic chemicals that I was still cleaning with, although when I was pregnant I mainly cleaned with vinegar. I still use vinegar for a lot of my cleaning, but I found that sometimes you need a little something else, like in the bathroom or on the stove-top. I try to use all natural cleaning products as much as possible. Admittedly, you will still find quite a few dangerous cleaners in my pantry.
Don’t be fooled by the term “non-toxic.” Just because something is non toxic doesn’t mean you want your child ingesting it.
