How To Choose Cleaning Products That Are Safe For Babies

Baby's first steps

Welcoming a new member into your family brings immense joy and responsibility. Among the countless tasks that come with caring for a baby, ensuring a clean and safe environment is paramount. However, with so many cleaning products available, it can be daunting to navigate which ones are truly safe for your little one. In this guide, we’ll explore how to clean hardwood floors and how to choose cleaning products that prioritize your baby’s health and well-being with these frequently asked questions.

When it comes to disinfecting floors in a baby-friendly manner, opt for products without harsh chemicals and specifically formulated for use around children and pets. Look for ingredients such as hydrogen peroxide or citric acid, which are effective disinfectants without posing health risks to babies. We recommend Quick Shine Disinfectant Floor Cleaner which checks all the boxes plus it is safe for use on hardwood and all hard surface floors. 

Vinegar is a popular natural cleaning solution due to its antibacterial properties. When diluted properly, vinegar can be safe for cleaning around babies. However, it’s essential to ensure that the vinegar is well-diluted to avoid any potential irritation to your baby’s skin or respiratory system. In addition, some floor types, such as hardwood, tile and stone, are more susceptible to damage as vinegar is acidic and can damage their finishes. Try Quick Shine Multi-Surface Floor Cleaner instead. This ready-to-use floor cleaner skips the bucket entirely for quick, easy and safer cleaning backed by EPA Safer Choice Certification. 

To create a homemade disinfectant spray safe for babies, combine equal parts water and white vinegar in a spray bottle. Optionally, you can add a few drops of essential oils like lavender or tea tree oil for a pleasant scent and added antibacterial properties. Remember to label the bottle clearly and keep it out of reach of children.

While bleach is a potent disinfectant, it can be harmful if not used correctly, especially around babies. It’s best to avoid using bleach in areas where your baby spends a lot of time, such as nursery floors or play areas. If you must use bleach, ensure proper ventilation and thoroughly rinse surfaces afterward. Opt for a safer cleaner such as Quick Shine Multi-Surface Floor Cleaner. This cleaner is Safer Choice Certified and does not contain harmful ingredients such as Ammonia, Alcohol, Formaldehyde, and Parabens. 

For everyday floor cleaning with a baby in the house, opt for pH-neutral cleaners specifically formulated for use around children. Look for plant-based or biodegradable options that are free from harsh chemicals and artificial fragrances. We recommend Quick Shine Safer Choice Floor Cleaners as they check all the boxes. Regular vacuuming and mopping with hot water can also effectively remove dirt and germs. Avoid the harsh chemical cleaners altogether!

Cleaning your house without harsh chemicals is not only safer for your baby but also better for the environment. Look for eco-friendly cleaning products labeled with the Safer Choice Certification. All of Quick Shine’s Floor Cleaners bear the Safer Choice seal of approval. Safer Choice cleaning solutions can be just as effective as their chemical counterparts without posing health risks to your baby.

In conclusion, prioritizing your baby’s health and safety when choosing cleaning products is essential for creating a nurturing environment. By opting for Safer Choice, baby-friendly cleaners, and using natural alternatives where possible, you can maintain a clean and healthy home without compromising on your little one’s well-being.
