Babyproofing Basics: The Top Hazards in Your Home
2 of 12
Remove all cleaners from under your sink or from floor level, and store them in an area your child can not reach or get to. If moving them isn't possible, install a child-proof latch, and don't use it in front of a child that may mimic your actions. Avoid storing cleaning compounds and food together, and keep everything in its original container. Food extracts such as vanilla and almond can be potentially poisonous to a child, so store these as you would any other household poison.
Do not leave any uncapped cleaner in the presence of a child, even for a brief amount of time. And remember to keep emergency numbers clearly posted by the telephone in the event your child accidentally ingests something poisonous.
