Lysol and pregnancy

I am at 12 weeks tomorrow and my mom came over tonight and I was cleaning my counters with Lysol bacterial spray! I clean like 2 a week my counters with it and now I am freaking out because my mom said the smell was so strong! I am going to get the safe stuff that I had used before! I didn't know if anyone had used Lysol while pregnant and what they have to say about it! I guess it really doesn't matter now, but I wasn't using it all the time, like once or twice a week! But it is a strong smell! I will just get the safe stuff! anyway, just want to see what anyone else says! thanks so much! Being pregnant is stressful!

I have always used lysol, and have never had any issues with it. I have also never been advised not to use it, nor have i ever heard of that. i am sure it is fine, but if you want to switch go right ahead. i mean lysol is what is recommended to clean baby toys with and many moms are cleaning these toys during pregnancy, so i dont see what the issue would be...

You could try Clorox "anywhere" spray. It kills germs and does not have an over powering odor.

You could try the Lysol wipes instead of spray as well! I was using them yesterday all day at work to avoid the germs of sick coworkers. Its funny because today my hands are super soft and I swear its from the wipes.
