Staying Safe in the Laundry Room – Take the Pledge & Enter to win a Laundry Room Makeover!

Staying safe is important to me. In fact, keeping my family safe is my top priority. You might remember in a recent post, I talked about how I go above and beyond to keep my family safe and healthy. Not only for my husband and our kids but for our in-laws, as well. As part of that, I’ve always made an effort to keep my laundry room safe for my kids, especially when they were younger.

Staying Safe in the Laundry Room

Staying Safe Begins with Prevention

Staying Safe Begins with Prevention
Let’s face it. Kids get into everything. In fact, they seem to have a gift for finding their way into everything we DON’T want them to be in. It’s like some sort of supernatural power. I’m convinced that small children either have telekinetic powers or that they can pass through walls. They’re like tiny little X-Men, except that we have to save them from themselves!

Accidents involving children and liquid laundry packets is a serious issue. According to the American Association of Poison Control Centers, in 2016 there have been 8,845 exposures to liquid laundry packets in children 5 and younger. The American Cleaning Institute (ACI) launched the KEY Pledge consumer safety education program in June of 2013 to address this issue. It’s a multi-platform educational program designed to help parents with the tools they need for staying safe in the laundry room. It promotes education and awareness about the proper usage, storage, and handling of liquid laundry packets. That’s so important because little kids really do put everything in their mouths, so staying safe begins with us parents.

How ACI Encourages Laundry Room Safety

Through the KEY Pledge, ACI helps parents and caregivers to take a look at their laundry rooms and routines to help them keep their children as safe as possible. Through proper usage and storage of these packets, we can help ensure the safety of our families.

  1. I think this is so important. When my youngest was very small, she managed to get into one of those pods. Thankfully, she didn’t actually rupture the package, but it scared the daylights out of me.
