WRITTEN BY Grove Collaborative • 33 min read

Most people have used the same cleaning products and brands for years and years, but many of those products contain harsh chemical ingredients, so if you’re planning on having kids, or already do, you’re going to want to think twice when it comes to just moving through the ol’ routine. Kids and especially babies have extra gentle and sensitive skin, and the cleaning products you use on their things and around them in your house definitely matter. Choose products that are naturally derived and free of dyes, fragrances, parabens, and other chemicals.

From cleaning the tub that they bathe in to washing their dishes and clothes, each and every product you choose for your home matters big time. That’s why we’ve created a quick list of the best kid and baby friendly cleaning products for you to stock up on from brands like Seventh Generation Baby and Mrs. Meyer’s.

FAQs

What cleaning products are safe around babies?

It’s well known that babies like to put everything in their mouths, and nothing’s worse than a little one playing with a dirty toy. Enter Babyganics Toy and Highchair Cleaner or method All-Purpose Compostable Cleaning Wipes — these are prime examples of baby friendly cleaning products. When you’re shopping around for safe cleaning products for babies, you’re going to want to check the ingredients to make sure no harsh chemicals have been added in — like chlorine bleach, alcohol, or phthalates. Because a baby’s skin is so sensitive and they breathe in anything that’s in the air, you may want to choose naturally derived cleaning products for your home in general, but especially for anything that baby touches.

What is a safe disinfectant for baby toys?

The internet is flooded with articles and advice that say it’s okay to use disinfectant cleaners on baby toys, and honestly, it makes us cringe. We recommend never (ever) using harsh chemical cleaners anywhere near your baby’s toys, especially ones you know are going to end up in their mouths. Instead, try natural disinfectants like thymol and make sure to choose baby friendly cleaning products from brands that use only naturally derived ingredients. You can still keep your baby’s toys clean from germs without putting those harsh chemicals on them. If you’re not sure how, take some time to read our article, How to clean and disinfect baby toys naturally for a step-by-step guide and ideas on how to get their toys their cleanest naturally.
