There are many hazards found in your home on a day to day basis, especially if you have small children.  There are many plastic safety innovations found in your home that help to protect you and your loved ones.

Many people use individual laundry detergent pods to wash their clothes for convenience and ease.  Unfortunately, if your container is not sealed properly, children can get ahold of these pods and ingest them, causing them to become very sick or even die.  Manufacturers of these pods have come up with a safe plastic childproof lid to protect young kids from getting inside the laundry container.  This plastic innovation was even recognized at the EastPack Trade show this summer!

Plastic medicine bottles are important for keeping your medication out of your children’s hands.  These child resistant plastic lids are perfect for keeping medicine that could be very harmful to children should they get to the bottles.  These plastic bottles can also be used for a number of other things to safely store small items that may be a choking hazard, or even to hide a spare key in case of an emergency.

Plastic food containers are the way to go to store leftovers.  The plastic containers keep out germs and mold to help your food last longer and prevent your family from getting sick from eating it.  Make sure that your plastic containers are BPA free before storing and reheating your food.

Available at most baby retailers are plastic door stoppers to prevent babies from slamming their tiny fingers in doors or even going into rooms that hold many dangerous surprises.  If you are expecting, it’s a good idea to install some of these things before the baby comes.

Electrical outlets can be very dangerous if you are not aware.  The outlets are usually at the perfect height for a toddler to stick their fingers or a toy into, risking electrical shock or electrocution.  Protect your family by using plastic outlet guards and security outlet plates to prevent foreign objects from being inserted.

Plastics are a vital tool to protect your children from the dangers around the home.  What plastic items do you and your family use to make your home a safe place?
