Be the Key Masthead



Pledge now to be the KEY to a safe laundry room and routine!

If like many of us you are on auto-pilot when it comes to laundry, join us in learning how to do laundry – the safe way.

New cleaning products for consumers enter the market continuously. In the laundry aisle, consumers may have noticed liquid laundry detergent packets since 2012.This product is often referred to as laundry packets, pods or pacs. These new products are fascinating and are convenient to use. But we don’t want you to get in too much of a hurry when you use these products. Just because they're easy to use, doesn't mean that you don’t have to treat them as you should any other concentrated household product you are using to keep your home clean and safe.

There are things you can do today - and everyday - to ensure that your laundry routine is as safe as possible. You can start right here by taking the KEY pledge to follow ACI's simple steps to a safe laundry room and routine:

Keep single-load liquid laundry packets out of the reach of children
Educate your family and friends about the safe use and storage of these new laundry products
You serve a key role in laundry safety
