Liquid Laundry Packet Safety

  Packets Up Logo



Liquid laundry packets feature concentrated detergent in a water-soluble film, offering a simple and sustainable laundry solution. They make doing laundry easier but, like with all cleaning products, must be stored properly to help prevent accidents at home.

ALWAYS keep laundry packets up and away from kids and NEVER let young children handle or hold them. Help us spread the word to keep #PacketsUp!
