Mrs Zeke and I are currently growing a sprog, she moreso than I. Thanks all for the congrats in advance
This evening, out of the blue, Mrs. Zeke announced that she wished oven-cleaners gave a list of specific warnings. I asked her to elaborate,
"Well, it says to use it in a well ventilated space, to use gloves and to avoid inhaling the fumes but it doesn’t say, don’t use this if you’re pregnant - so it should theoretically be safe?
I didn’t know for sure but my immediate reaction was, no it’s not safe. I then told her to name a day and find somewhere else to be for five or so hours and I’d clean the oven and air out the house (in Manitoba in December :)).
For curiosity sake I hit the internet.
Google produced a hit from an NHS hospitalbut it basically said, “we don’t know what cleaners will do but wear gloves and don’t inhale”. That was as helpful as the label.
So I come here to ask; are there are known (or even prettly likely) potential effects on the foetus if the mother inhales an oven-cleaning’s worth of fumes?
