Top 3 Natural Household Cleaning Lines
Part of the nesting process, and what will inevitably become an even more major part of the Mom-ing process, is cleaning. It’s no one’s cup of tea, but it often lands on our shoulders (as if we don’t already have enough to do!). One thing that we find helps us loathe cleaning just a little bit less is a beautiful, clean, happy scent. But we all know that the average cleaning products contain not only synthetic fragrance, a pregnancy no-no, but also loads of unnecessary chemicals that neither we expectant moms (nor babies!) should be inhaling or touching. And so, we have scoured the world of non-toxic household cleaners for lines of products that offer a variety of refreshing and truly inspiring scents, all completely safe for mama and baby. Behold our Top 3 Household Cleaning Lines that may even make you want to clean (gasp!).
What criteria did we use to select our top three pregnancy-safe picks? Learn about our process here.
Why we love it:
This is the best smelling home cleanser we have ever used; EVER. This comes as no surprise if you visit their site, which promotes “aromatherapeutic living” and some outright inspiring imagery; can they also come decorate my home? The sea salt & neroli non-toxic scent makes us look forward to scrubbing our countertops—really! Even better, it also actually works. We were able to tackle stuck-on gunk from a messy one year old’s breakfast, the icky residue on the stove, and make our sink sparkle all in a few sprays of absolute heaven.
Why we love it:
Grove has taken the non-toxic cleaning world to a new level, offering a realm of safe products, from surface cleaner, to floors, to tile scrubs. The formulas come in concentrates with a cute reusable bottle, so you mix your own batch and use as needed. What is particularly unique is that you can subscribe to a program where they send you your refills based on an average timeline; or, you can defer to a one time purchase. And you get your own personal cleanliness adviser who keeps in touch to make sure everything is working properly.
Why we love it:
Perhaps stylistically the ultra clean-chic opposite to Caldrea, The Laundress is equally as inspiring with its simple black and white aesthetic. This packaging will look stylish on any laundry room or kitchen counter and has been touted as one of the ultimate in luxurious clean brands. The co-founders share a unique background of science and fashion and also the common goal of taking the chore out of what began as just laundry and now has spanned the world of cleaning products. Mission accomplished ladies!

Remember, every pregnancy is different, and we are not medical professionals, so if you’re concerned about any product we mention, please talk to your doctor to make sure you’re 100% comfortable with what you’re using on your body and in your home. We did our best to sort out what we feel are the best pregnancy-friendly options out there by conducting extensive research, including: talking with our own doctors, scouring the internet, sifting through product reviews, and chatting with other moms-to-be. We hope our research helps you find products that make you feel great!
