Creating Safe Laundry Spaces


We love seeing those beautifully remodeled and redecorated laundry spaces! Just make sure to keep safety in mind. One dangerous trend we've seen is storing liquid laundry packets in clear containers. Cleaning products should always be stored up and out of reach of children. Join us in spreading the word that when it comes to cleaning products, think #StoreNotDecor

Store Not Decor

With so many more people home during the COVID19 pandemic, interest in interior design products surged. At the same time, there was a 10% increase in exposures to household cleaning products among children. This one-pager lays out why it's so important to create laundry spaces that put safety first.

Incorrect Storage Example
Social Media Trend Data

Unsafe storage of liquid laundry packets was portrayed nearly 800,000 times over a four-year period on popular social media platforms. The trend of discussing or displaying the packets outside their original containers and placing them in clear jars or containers was featured mostly on Instagram, TikTok and Pinterest between 2019 and 2022.

Packets Up

Our Packets Up campaign is focused on making proper storage of liquid laundry packets a daily practice to help prevent accidents in the home. ALWAYS keep laundry packets up and away from kids and NEVER let young children handle or hold them.
