For the little ones in your household, safety is a constant concern and one of the most dangerous places in a house can be the laundry room. Bleach, cleaners and laundry liquids and powders can be easily ingested by a child if left in an easily-accessible location or level. Keep your laundry chemical supplies out of reach of the little ones.
And believe it or not, the laundry machines themselves pose a potential danger. Most parents can't imagine their child wanting to crawl inside the dryer or stand inside the washing machine, but we've heard of it happening, and more than just a few times. Even an older dryer or washing machine has enough power to tumble or spin a child's weight, if that child has a curious accomplice.
