Buying laundry detergent in large containers is a very rational decision. Not only does it save money, but it also eliminates the need to constantly run to the store when the detergent runs out at the most unexpected times. However, large containers are not always practical, so you may want to pour powder or liquid into small containers.

Of course, this saves space and reduces clutter in the bathroom. However, experts say that moving products out of their original containers can lead to potential hazards.

It is important to remember that household cleaning products are potentially hazardous chemicals. Manufacturers publish a lot of information on labels to ensure consumer safety. So, when you throw away the original packaging, you lose access to these important details.

Labels usually contain instructions on how to use the product properly. For example, some chemicals work well in certain situations but can be corrosive or harmful in other cases. Labels usually have a warning section that contains important information about the health hazards of the product. In addition, they often include first aid tips, such as what to do if the product accidentally gets in your eyes or mouth.

Of course, in the digital age, you can find all of this on the Internet by searching, but it takes time, and having the information on the packaging, especially in an emergency, will allow you to take immediate action.

The label also contains disposal and storage instructions, and certification symbols related to, for example, environmental friendliness and animal testing, which will help you determine whether the product is in line with your values and priorities.

Laundry products often have bright colors, and when you put them in clear containers, they will look and smell appealing. Children may think they've stumbled upon a tasty drink. According to research, household products are the second leading cause of accidental poisoning in children under the age of 6 in the United States. These poisonings cause 240 deaths and nearly 4900 visits to emergency rooms every day, according to US statistics.
