    Lysol question

    I am 17 weeks pregnant and before I noticed a HUGE spider in my garage, so I grabbed the lysol quickly and sprayed away to kill it. I first sprayed and ran to breathe and did it again. i was in my garage closed, so I grabbed a hand towel and covered my mouth to try not to breath it in. I did take in a few breaths of it, and after felt like I could taste it. Now I am freaking out it could harm my baby. I drank water and milk, still a bit of a funky taste. Could this incident harm the baby>?

    Did you spray the spider with Lysol or Raid?

    Certainly, pregnant women are more sensitive to smells and tastes. I can understand why the smell and taste lingered. But there's been no cases of either Lysol or Raid harming a baby used in the way you describe.
