For many Americans, garages are the most well worn entryway to their homes. Besides the daily family traffic, the garage is also a place where we mix things together that would never be found in the same place anywhere else in our home, potentially making it the most dangerous place in your house. You are likely to see toys, bikes, and balls stored within inches of insecticides, turpentine and gasoline. To keep your family safe, be sure to store dangerous chemicals out of the reach of children, or better yet, in a locked cabinet. Also, be sure to keep chemicals in their original container with the labels in good condition. Store combustibles like gasoline, propane and kerosene in containers designed especially for them. Ladders should always be stored in a horizontal position so that children can not climb on them.
