Below are essential ideas that you may consider when storing and keeping these chemicals away from children:

Hazardous household chemicals should always be kept out of reach and sight of kids. Statistics show that in many of the emergency room visits involving chemical poisoning in children, that the child got to the chemicals because of they were stored in places where children can easily reach them. Remove all the hazardous chemicals from any easy-to-reach places and store them safely in higher places. If this is not an option, or you want to store them in a location that would possibly be accessible for children, you need to make sure that there are safety locks on the cabinets and drawers where they are stored. 

Disposes Off Hazardous Chemicals Carefully

Avoid throwing chemicals in the trash because kids can easily dig them out. Make sure to go ahead and dispose of these items directly into outside garbage storage to avoid a poisoning accident. 

Above are just a couple of ideas to keep your kids safe from hazardous material. Another option is to have a maid service like The Maids of Cape Cod come and handle your cleaning for you, leaving no need to store these hazardous materials in your home.
