For just a few dollars, you can kick your bathroom safety regime up a notch by installing doorknob covers. This children's safety product is a plastic mold that goes over your doorknob and makes it difficult for most toddlers' little hands to open it. This can be an important way to keep your children from entering the bathroom without your supervision. You can also use a doorknob cover on your bathroom closet to restrict access to cleaning products, prescription and over-the-counter medications and other potentially dangerous substances. There are different door knob cover brands and styles available, so be sure to select one that fits your doors and is sturdy enough not to break. Also make sure all of the adults in your home can easily open the knob themselves in case of an emergency.
