Liquid Detergent Capsules

Liquid detergent capsules help consumers use just the right amount of detergent for their washing needs. They are used daily by millions of consumers. Whilst they are safe when used and stored as instructed, it is essential to always store them in a safe place, out of reach of children. The companies placing liquid detergent capsules on the market take the safety of consumers very seriously.  To prevent accidental exposures with these products, in particular involving young children, the detergents industry has taken a number of voluntary actions. These come on top of the CLP Regulation requirements which were adopted in 2014.
