tide laundry room safety tips to keep kids safe

Never underestimate the power of a child. From the time my youngest was a tiny baby, he has been into everything. Before he could walk, he could stand and open any door in a few tries. We have always had to be extra diligent about our homes safety. Luckily when the sign of a potential situation struck we have always been right there to avoid any disasters. One room that often gets looked over when doing safety and prevention in your home is the laundry room. It’s an easy room to miss, mostly because you don’t plan to have your child in their. What’s behind the laundry room door could be a dangerous place for children. 

This Poison Prevention Week (starts Monday, 3/16), I am working with Tide and Gain to bring you tips on having a safe home starting with the laundry room. Child proofing your home and making it a safe environment reduces the risk of accidents.

These powerful packets contain highly concentrated detergent and require the same safety concerns as your other cleaning products. All pods including Tide Pods and Gain Flings should be stored in a closed package, high and away from the reach of children. Arriba y Lejos and sealed all together is the best place for your favorite laundry pacs. 

Store all laundry and cleaning supplies in a high cabinet, that you can lock with a child safety cabinet lock.

Have the number to poison control and your pediatrician handy and in a place that everyone commonly sees in case of an emergency. It is smart to keep all important phone numbers on the refrigerator door, where any caregiver and even your immediate family can always go in an emergency.

Take a child’s perspective at what’s around. Get down on the floor of your entire home and look for any dangerous objects. Hanging cords and cabinets that could use child safety closures. There are so many dangers that can be avoided by getting down to a child’s level.

Check all furniture and secure it to a stud on the wall to avoid anything that could topple over onto a child. Raise flat screen televisions onto walls to avoid them being pulled onto a child.

Add child safety gates at the bottom and top of stairs.

Add locks up high to entry and exit doors of your home, include garage doors.

Window guards that keep a window from opening are perfect for use.

  5. Good post here. One thing I’d like to say is most professional areas consider the Bachelor’s Degree just as the entry level requirement for an online certification. Even though Associate Qualifications are a great way to begin with, completing the Bachelors starts up many opportunities to various jobs, there are numerous online Bachelor Diploma Programs available by institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another issue is that many brick and mortar institutions offer Online versions of their degree programs but generally for a drastically higher price than the providers that specialize in online degree programs.
