May 18, 2007, Newsletter Issue #64: Bathroom Safety First: Medicines

Tip of the Week

If your kids have their own bathroom, it probably makes sense to keep medications and other products like that out of it. If you share a bathroom, make sure that medications, including vitamins, prescription drugs and over-the-counter drugs, have child-resistant caps, and are kept – along with cosmetics and cleaning supplies - in a secure closet.

Keep medicines and cleaning products in their original containers with the original labels intact, and make sure you read and follow product use, storage instructions and safety recommendations. Remind your kids to always ask before using products, and consider keeping tote boxes of kid-safe products that children know are okay for them to use.
