My boys are 5 and 6 years old, but that doesn’t mean they can’t mistake a laundry packet for candy.
According to the American Cleaning Institute, most parents may not realize that laundry packets can cause serious harm and injury including accidental ingestion and eye exposure if not properly stored.
Did you know?
In 2013 there were over 10,000 laundry packet exposures in children five and younger. To avoid accidents, parents/caregivers need to remember laundry packets and their containers are not edible and should never be handled by young children. Each laundry packet contains highly concentrated detergent and can cause serious harm if children gain access.
How to protect your children.
To protect children from serious injury, always store laundry packets out of reach and sight and keep them in their original container or pouch.
To help others prevent laundry packet accidents, The American Cleaning Institute, released a new 60 second video which contains important safety messages about how to safely use single-load liquid laundry packets.
