Since the beginning of 2005, 615 children have been poisoned by dishwashing powder
NZ Herald, Saturday June 30th, “Mother wins detergent restrictions.”
A 4 year old boy has already suffered through nearly 50 operations, is fed through a tube, and needs 24 hour care. The mother, in combination with Safekids has managed to get new regulations in place to lower the causticity of detergents, such as dishwashing powder.
And if you suspect your child has swallowed something bad, CALL 0800 764 766 immediately and follow their advice.
They will tell you whether to give the child anything (usually not) whether to make the child vomit (usually not, and definitely not in the case of dishwashing powder).
