The American Cleaning Institute (ACI) has created a new safety video that aims to prevent serious accidents as it pertains to how to safely use single-load liquid laundry packets. According to the American Association of Poison Control Centers, in 2013 there were over 10,000 laundry packet exposures in children five and younger.
To prevent laundry packet accidents, ACI’s new educational video offers the following safety tips:
- Always store laundry packets and their containers out of reach and sight
- Keep laundry packet containers closed and in a dry place when not in use
- Do not let children handle laundry packets
- Do not puncture or pull packets apart
