Laundry Packet Safety 101

Liquid laundry packets contain highly concentrated detergent and must be kept away from children, just like other household cleaners like bleach and dish soap. They can cause serious injury or illness if exposed to the eyes or swallowed. Ensure these products are always stored up and out of reach of young children.

    • If the single-load liquid laundry packets stick together, throw them away.
    • Handle this product with dry hands only, and remember to close the product container completely after each use to keep out moisture.
