Yes. Because of all the chemicals I ended up having a miscarriage. If you do housekeeping, please use a mask and if you can, work with someone who can use the chemicals. Housekeeping is strenuous enough when you're not pregnant!

Tip: vinegar is kills more germs than lisol. A lot of places will use vinegar over other harsh chemicals.

My sister did years ago, and almost immediately after finding out she was expecting had to quit. Like last post its very dangerous, even when not pregnant.

I also clean houses once a week and last pregnancy was fine and this one is too. I recommend not using bleach products and definitely don't mix chemicals together. Meyers brand is great and just make sure you have windows open.
