Tips for Child-Safe Cleaning continued...

When you first shift to child-safe cleaning, there's one thing you might miss: that clean smell. Lunder points out that what you used to smell wasn't really "clean" anyway.



"That smell is just chemically produced," says Lunder. "Real clean doesn't have a scent."

Adopting a child-safe cleaning routine might not keep your house as fresh-smelling as an (artificial) pine forest or lemon grove. It might not keep your bathroom as antiseptic as an operating room. But it could have real health benefits for your kids, both now and in the future.
