When organizing our home office we need to look at childproofing.
Keeping cleaning products, paint and varnish, in one location out of reach (or even locked up) will give you peace of mind where children are concerned. Fortunately or not, modern technology brings us new products every year. They make cleaning, repairing and using household objects easier — but often come with the price tag of new toxins.
This includes prescription and over-the-counter drugs also. These should be inventoried for expiration dates, kept clean with legible directions and out of children’s reach.
New advice says that the medicine cabinet may not be the best place to store medications because the warm, moist atmosphere there also can reduce the effectiveness of medications.
Under or over the sink may be convenient but may not be the healthiest choice for you or the little ones.
