When considering consumer product safety, it's definitely a big help to know which items are safe.
But what about the products that are not safe?
When small children are in the home, basic window blinds can be a hazard. The concern is not so much the blinds themselves, but the inner and outer cords that hang loose. These could be twisted around a child's neck.
It's best to avoid window blinds in the house. If this is not possible, be sure to choose blinds that have safety tassels, and have tight inner cords.
