It’s the perfect time to try the new single-load liquid laundry packets. Everyone is busy and laundry is piling up with school clothes, ballet outfits and t-ball uniforms. This laundry innovation contains highly concentrated detergent. However, if not safely stored, they can attract dangerous interest from young children leading to injury from ingestion or exposure to the eyes.
American Cleaning Institute urges parents and caregivers to keep these products in a secure location out of reach and sight of young children.
How do I use this new product?
  • Like all other cleaning products, keep single-load liquid laundry packets out of the reach of children and pets between every load to prevent unintended exposure.
  • Add the single-load liquid laundry packets to the bottom – also known as the drum – of the washing machine, both for top-loader and high-efficiency front-loader machines, before adding clothes, for best results. Do not put this product in your machine's dispenser drawer.
  • Do not cut or tear the single-load liquid laundry packets. They are designed to dissolve completely in the machine, even in cold water.
  • Read the product label to determine how much product you should use.
  • Do not use the single-load liquid laundry packets for washing laundry by hand or to pretreat fabric.
  • If the single-load liquid laundry packets stick together, throw them away.
  • Handle this product with dry hands only, and remember to close the product container completely after each use to keep out moisture. The film that encases the laundry detergent is designed to dissolve quickly, even in small amounts of water. Store this product away from water.
  • Always ensure re-closable bag or container is tightly sealed after use and during storage.
  • As with other laundry products, keep product in its original container with intact labels.
  • Store products away from food, as you would with other laundry products.
  • If you think a child has been exposed to a single-load liquid laundry packets, call your local poison center at 1-800-222-1222 immediately.
