Researchers at Nationwide Children's Hospital have come up with a childproof spray bottle designed to protect small children from the dangers of household cleaning products.
Health experts said that few parents realize the health hazard posed by common household cleaning supplies
Researchers said that between 1990 and 2006, household cleaning products sent more than 267,000 children under the age of 5 to emergency rooms, and 40 percent of those cases involved spray bottles.
Even a kindergartener can twist those sprayers on and off, so researchers at Nationwide Children's Hospital came up with a two state trigger that automatically re-locks when you let go.
Researchers put the new bottle to the test and said that even the most determined children could not figure out how to make it work.
Now that the prototype is finalized researchers hope to team up with developers to bring the technology to your home.
