The new Packets Up webpage features a whiteboard video, safety clings, Store not Décor campaign, safety tips, activity sheets and more.

Safety clings are also available in Spanish. The clings are free, simply fill out the form. When your cling arrives, you can put it on your cabinet or washer as a reminder to store products safely in your home at all times.
