    Any clean freaks out there?
    Personally, i'm not, but today, i went on a major spring clean.

    Now, i've just thought, i'm really not supposed to be near cleaning products, due to the fumes etc.

    How bad do you think this is? what effects can it have? How many fumes do you have to enhale? Just a bit worried now :-S

    Oh I'm sure you're fine hon...but from now on just for your peace of mind why not try something environmentally friendly? I don't clean too much myself :dohh: but my mom uses this stuff called Simple Green and says it works pretty well.

    I think you're ok as long as it's not harsh chemicals, oven cleaner etc, and airfreshener is a no no.

    We use Ecover, and I have no energy... so I'm safe for the time being.

    I wondered whether i was nesting or not! But think its too early :-/ heard it usually only happens around third trimester. I think i just woke up and realised the kitchen was a mess and needed a clean! Lol

    I've been really houseproud since finding out about bubs....I have been using my normal products but making sure the room is well ventilated. I open all the windows in the bathroom while cleaning it - I freeze but at least there's no problem.

    My mum is a rep for a product range called meleleuca (sp?) and it's all natural, based on tea tree. She's going to get me some of their stuff for cleaning later on and when LO is here. It's really good stuff but I'm not sure about her wanting to give me £40 worth of it per month!! I only normally spend a fiver and use fairy or Cif liquid or everything!!! :rofl:
