Safe homes for little reachers

Often, before little ones have even learnt to walk they’re already reaching and stretching as high as they can go. Exploring is part of growing up but children have little concept of the potential dangers which is why, as parents, we need to consider just what is within their reach.

Fairy Non Bio

Here are a few easy-to-follow advices that will stop little explorers reaching for things they shouldn’t in different places around home.

Kitchen: 🥘

• To prevent hot food or liquid spills, use the back burner of your hob and turn pot handles away from the edge

• Keep hot foods away from the edge of your counters

• Make a habit of placing matches, gasoline and lighters in a safe place, out of children’s reach and sight. Avoid novelty lighters or lighters that look like toys

Bathroom: 🛁

• Keep bleach and cleaning products out of sight and locked in a cupboard

• Keep all medicine up high and out of reach and sight of children, even medicine you take every day

Laundry room: 👕

• Always keep detergents (and especially liquid laundry capsules) in a closed pack and out of reach and sight of children

Lounge: 🛋

• Attach TVs and furniture to the wall where possible to avoid tip-overs

• Store heavy objects on lower shelves or in lower drawers and avoid placing remote controls, toys or other items in places where kids might be tempted to climb up to reach for them

Your task: Share the safety message:

Keep fellow parents of young children aware of how hazards change as little ones grow by meeting up and sharing with them the facts that you’ve learnt so far. When sharing samples of Fairy Non Bio pods, make sure they will use the product immediately after opening, and keep them out of reach of children. And ask them to remember to always close the packs after use!
