Thank you to Tide + Latina Bloggers Connect for sponsoring this important discussion about safety!
If you ask me what phase of life I’m in, I’d tell you I’m on the refresher course of parenting. This is where I’m teaching my firstborn how to be a parent to my first grandchild. I’m putting an emphasis on safety because let’s be real, things have changed dramatically since he was a baby in the 90s but one thing remains the same, it only takes a second for an everyday household item to become a danger. Especially for families with children age 5 and younger. Laundry pacs didn’t even exist way back then! Still considered a new form, many don’t even realize they are a laundry detergent. I teamed up with Tide to bring you tips on how to keep your home safe both in and out of the laundry room!
Studies show that while parents often take precautions to properly child proof their home, such as locking away cleaning products in their kitchens, the laundry area is often overlooked.
Some examples of risk items that small children can get to around the home:
- uncovered outlet
- window blind cord
- unsecured tv
- handbag contents
- sharp edges
- unattended iron
- leaning mirror
Keep Them Up, Keep Them Closed and Keep Them Safe
After use, always firmly close the Tide Pods bag or tub and safely store it up and away, out of reach from children and pets. It is that simple and super easy to remember!
I love that Tide sponsors Safe Kids Day. We were invited to the LA event and had the best time learning about safety. You can check out local Safe Kids Day events in your area here.
Like any household detergent, keep away from children. For more information, check out these videos from Tide or visit the tide.com
Always keep the number to the poison control center (800) 222-1222, and your pediatrician handy just in case your child manages to get into anything they shouldn’t. Do me a favor and take a quick survey of your home to see what you need to fix! The best way to do it is by crawling on your hands and knees.
