Exposure to liquid laundry packets among young children remains an issue. In fact, an ACI consumer survey found that 61% of parents are storing laundry packets in-sight or in-reach of children. Proper use and storage of these liquid laundry packets is essential in preventing accidental exposures.
There are a variety of things you can do to prevent accidental exposures during National Poison Prevention Week (March 20-26, 2016) and beyond.
The liquid inside these pre-measured packets is harmful if put in the mouth, swallowed or gets in the eye. Immediately call Poison Help at 1-800-222-1222 if there is an accident.
Prevention is simple.
Locking detergent packets up in a cabinet is an effective way to keep these products out of reach of your children, especially when they begin exploring closets and cabinets at an early age.
