Just a caution: if there are young children in the home (or in my case, visiting grandkids), think about not buying the single dose packets of detergent. They are glossy and small and attractive to toddlers, who have ingested them and a few of them nationwide have not survived.

Yes, that is why P&G have launched a huge nationwide campaign regarding cascade pods, Tide pods and Gain flings. The bags now come with child proof seals. P&G was sued for wrongful death last year when a toddler ingested cascade pods and died. And another suit regarding the tide pods was also filed.

I buy pods all the time, but I dont keep them where my 2 year can get ahold them. I keep them stored way above her head, behind a closed door. Its not about not buying them, its about keeping chemicals out of reach and behind locked and closed doors/cabinets.
