    Safe Storage under the Sink

    Cleaning products and other items stored under kitchen and bathroom sinks are as dangerous to young children as the bottle of pills in a medicine cabinet.

    You can protect toddlers from harmful cleansers, large bottles of alcohol, charcoal lighter, or even hair dye by putting these products in a metal file box and then locking it with a key. Both narrow and regular size file boxes are available for a reasonable price at variety stores. Place the file box under the sink and put the key in an empty childproof pill container.—Karen Mergeler, Bear Valley, California
