Keep out of reach of children

Disclosure: Thank you to the great folks at the American Cleaning Institute (ACI) for sponsoring this post about an important safety topic.

June is perfect for National Safety Month because so many families are transitioning from school into summer routines, and sometimes a change in routine is just what we need to look at our surroundings with fresh eyes. (It’s also a great time to enter for a chance to win a fantastic gift card worth $2,500! Read on to find out all you need to know.)

It’s important to look closely at our surroundings because things do change. If your two year old has grown 4 inches, things that were out of reach last year may now be within reach.

As we check our surroundings, there may be areas we may not consider when thinking about home safety, like the laundry room. So National Safety month is a great time to see if we’re practicing safe laundry habits because there are many products in our laundry rooms that could be harmful if they fall into the wrong hands.

That’s why the American Cleaning Institute and I have teamed up on an important safety campaign to raise awareness and provide education around one of those products – single-load liquid laundry packets.

Children are curious and tend to put all sorts of things in their mouths. Food, toys, teethers, and fingers – you name it, they may even put things in their mouths they shouldn’t – like these laundry packets.

The American Cleaning Institute has created a national consumer education campaign called the KEY Pledge to raise awareness about laundry safety. The KEY Pledge reminds parents of these precautions:

Be the KEY

You can take the KEY pledge online at keypledge.com and follow ACI’s simple steps to be the KEY to your family’s laundry safety. They also have some great safety tips and educational videos.

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that by taking the pledge at keypledge.com you will be automatically entered into a sweepstakes for the chance to win a $2,500 gift card to help makeover your laundry room!

Good luck and stay safe!
