    Hi all,

    chemicals/pesticides/herbicides etc have been linked to hypospadius in boysand of course some of the nasty ones could have other bad side effects also

    I use a combnation of enjo, microfibre cloths and a product called nature direct.
    I've never normally used too many chemicals though and when pregnant i still cleaned just used less of the products.
    don't panic about what you've already used to date though, will just cause you unnecessary stress; i'm sure your bub is fine

    vinegar and bi carb is a fantastic way of cleaning your house naturally. I usually just add vinegar to hot water to mop
