Young children are explorers, and as they develop, they often learn by touch and by putting things into their mouths. Liquid laundry detergent packets are designed to dissolve in water, so when they come in contact with wet hands or mouths, they start to dissolve and might release the concentrated liquid inside. We want to encourage our kids to explore and discover new things, we just need to be careful to keep them safe. Here are a few tips to show you how.
- Keep liquid laundry packets out of children’s reach and sight.
- Keep packets in their original container and keep the container closed.
- If a child gets into them, call the Poison Help number immediately: 1-800-222-1222.
