(BPT) - Oh, there’s no place like home for the holidays … at least for the 60% of Americans who claim they will be staying put this holiday season. While that may not seem different than the past year of working and learning from home, for many, the holiday break will bring a renewed opportunity to focus on family, create new traditions and re-establish critical household rules, specifically around safety.

This year, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, reports show an increase in calls to poison control centers for exposures to hygiene and cleaning products. With an ongoing health crisis creating a greater need to clean and disinfect, and the holidays creating more chaos in American households, the American Cleaning Institute reminds everyone that safe handling and storage practices are more important than ever.
