Household Chemical Storage Guide

As a parent who wants to protect your kids, you’re probably aware that the first place to start is in your own home. Just as you baby-proofed your living spaces when your infant became mobile, you’ll also want to take precautions with the household chemicals lurking under the kitchen sink, on the bathroom shelf, and in the laundry room. Those ordinary, store-bought products often contain toxins — and the last thing you want is for a curious toddler to get into them and be harmed. However, before you start throwing everything out, consider that knowing how to store these items properly also can effectively protect your child.

Thankfully, there are several simple steps you can take to keep your kids safe from household chemicals.

It describes some of the best and most practical ways to minimize exposure and accidents.
