P&G Fabric Care (Tide & Gain) is sharing tips and information to raise awareness of the importance of maintaining a safe home in order to raise awareness on the importance of laundry room safety.
Creating a safe home/laundry room is important all year, but as you’re finalizing your spring cleaning/summer prep efforts, it’s a good time to conduct a safety check of your home.
More than 90 percent of poisonings occur in the home. Among young children one of the most common causes of poisonings is cleaning products. Children can swallow detergents, bleaches, and other cleaning products. Breathing fumes from these products can also harm people.
Tide and Gain have partnered with parenting & lifestyle Expert, Rosie Pope, , best known for her Bravo reality show Pregnant in Heels, to help parents across the country create safe (homes and) laundry rooms.
Rosie Pope shares helpful tips to creating and maintaining a safe home – in and outside the laundry room for you and your little ones.
Think About Storage and Cleanliness
Keep all cleaning supplies including laundry pacs – up, up and away. Supplies should be behind door and high up out of children’s reach.
Keep cleaning products in their original containers with the label intact.
Clean up any spills, and immediately wash your hands and any items you use to pour or measure products.
Think Like a Child
See things from a child’s perspective. Try getting down on your hands and knees and look around for small items.
Educate your children on hazardous products and situations in the home. The world is a dangerous place and you’re not always going to be there. Educating your kids will allow them to make smart choices on their own.
Always have the numbers of poison control and your pediatrician handy.
Remember to educate other guests in your home about house rules. Nannies, mother-in-laws, friends –be sure to let them know important safety precautions like where to store cleaning items.
Set reminders for yourself to do safety checks in your home every 3 – 4 months.
Develop and practice a home fire escape plan with two ways out of the house in case of fire.
