As single-load liquid laundry packets become more familiar to US consumers, the American Cleaning Institute (ACI) reminds the public about safe use of these products. The concentrated detergent in these packets can be harmful if swallowed or exposed to eyes.

“Laundry packets are different and need to be handled differently. While these products are convenient and easy for consumers to use, it’s vital for parents and caregivers to use and store these products safety and securely,” said Nancy Bock, ACI senior vice president of education.

Bock offered the following safety reminders regarding single-load liquid laundry packets:
  • Do not let children handle laundry packets
  • Do not puncture or pull packets apart
  • Store out of child’s sight and reach
  • Keep the container closed and dry
  • Packets quickly dissolve upon contact with water, wet hands, or saliva
  • Packets can rupture, releasing contents into eyes
While these safety reminders coincide with National Poison Prevention Week (March 17-23, 2013), Bock stated that safe use and proper storage of all cleaning products is a year-round necessity.

“It is possible to prevent accidents involving these products and prevent a trip to the doctor’s office or emergency room,” said Bock, who serves as vice chair of the National Poison Prevention Week Council.
