You can hear a watery, but above all splashing sound from the kitchen. Your child looks up laughing, ‘oh oowh I’ve been caught’!. She found the bottle of toilet chlorine and covered the ground and herself with that blue stuff. It’s everywhere!
Oh no, what should I do now?
Dishwasher tablets look like sweets for children, especially the gel type. But what’s in there? Believe me, all cleansers that you do not want to find in your child’s stomach.
The next thing we don’t immediately think about are the medicines, where are they in the house? In your bedside table, in the bathroom? Can your child reach this with her fingers? Medicines nowadays all have beautiful colors, and all kinds of sweeteners so that they do not taste so bad. Super nice of course, but this means that they also taste good when your child puts them in her mouth and sees these medicines as sweets.
Have you already stored all cleaning products high so that your child cannot reach them or are they still at the bottom of the cupboard? Then that is definitely the first thing you need to change a.s.a.p., so that the chance that this happens to you is immediately reduced.
