Can I paint and stain when pregnant?

Questions/answers

Marie, we just bought a home, and I was wondering if I should be there why my husband paints or stains the stairs. I am 27 weeks pregnant. Also, the other day I wanted to clean some of the rooms and the product is labelled “Not for pregnant women.” Is the problem the smell or touching the product? If I wear gloves, is that fine? Thanks for your help!

Dear Gabrielle,

Good question! Buying a home and renovations often go along with the arrival of a new baby. It’s important to know what you can and can’t do during pregnancy. There are cleaning products, paints and stains that are fine to use during when pregnant. For more information, I talked to experts.

Please read their advice in my article Stains, Paints and Pregnancy.
