Keep Caps From Kids

We all know that toddlers put almost everything they can get their hands on into their mouth. That is why it is so important to make sure children can never ever get hold of a liquid laundry detergent capsule. Not while the product is in storage. Nor while you are doing the laundry. Always keep caps from kids.

Safe use advice

  • Only use liquid laundry capsules to wash clothes and follow carefully the on-pack instructions. They should never be used for any other purpose and should always be stored out of reach and out of sight of children.
  • When you’ve taken a capsule out of the pack to do the laundry, make a habit of it to re-close the pack right away. A child might otherwise manage to grab a capsule out of the open pack within a split second. Children love to imitate adults. So if you’ve just taken a capsule out of the pack, you can imagine what a child would like to do too!
  • Next, put the capsule directly into the drum of the washing machine, and close the machine door immediately. Even if you need to step away from the machine for only an instant to get the laundry. Children are surprisingly quick when they want to take something they find interesting. Such as a liquid laundry detergent capsule that is inside the washing machine. Or on top of it. Or on top of the dirty laundry in the laundry basket. So as a general rule, never leave a liquid laundry detergent capsule outside of its pack or outside of the closed washing machine, even if it is only for a very short time.
  • It goes without saying that you should never ever give a liquid laundry detergent capsule to a child, to help with the laundry, or to play with it. If a capsule is accidentally dropped on the floor, make sure you find it and pick it up immediately. And if you need to throw away a capsule for whatever reason, make sure a child cannot easily take it out of the dustbin.
  • Once you’ve put the liquid laundry detergent capsule safely into the machine drum, don’t forget to put the pack back into its safe storage place, and to close the child-safety lock on the cupboard if you don’t have a high storage place.
