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

Accidents can happen anywhere of course. We know this. But when we think of accidents in the home, we might think first about slipping in the bathroom or working with tools in the yard or garage. But what about laundry accidents?

Laundry accidents may not be on our radar screens, but it turns out, according to the American Association of Poison Control Centers (AAPCC), in 2013, poison centers received reports of 10,000 unintended exposures to highly-concentrated packets of laundry detergent by children 5 and younger.

That's why I've teamed up with the American Cleaning Institute to help increase awareness surrounding the proper usage, storage, and handling of single-load liquid laundry packets.

Millions of consumers have found these packets to be an easy and convenient way to get their laundry done efficiently and effectively; however, it's important to remember these powerful packets contain highly concentrated detergent, and, therefore, require the same discipline as common household cleaning products when it comes to safely using, handling, and storing them.
