One of the many items on the very long checklist of to-dos you’ll likely print out during your pregnancy is babyproofing. You probably already know to cover up the outlets, invest in a gate for stairways and rethinking furniture with sharp edges, but did you know your laundry room also need babyproofing?
Laundry detergent pods are definitely one of our favorite inventions in the last five years–what’s not to love about dropping a little pouch into the washing machine instead of trying to pour just the right amount of detergent from a massive bottle? The downside, of course, is that we must take extra precautions to keep these genius pods away from little hands (and mouths!).
Any expert will tell you to keep laundry items (and all household cleaners, for that matter), on high shelves and sealed securely so that children don’t come into contact with them, but Tide went a step further by introducing their new Child-Guard™ zippers on Tide Pods packages coming out this summer. Not only is this closure the most secure design in laundry child safety to date, but it’s just one of the many ways Tide is working to make moms’ lives easier.
