Studies show that when it comes to household cleaners, the spray bottle is the most common source of exposure to injury among children in the U.S. Not only have children figured out how to use the spray bottle trigger, they are ingesting the hazardous chemicals typically found in these bottles. So, the researchers at Nationwide Children's Hospital who originally researched household cleaner injuries have taken their research and ideas a step further -- they have developed a new prototype with a more difficult mechanism that a child cannot easily operate. Watch Lara McKenzie, in the Center for Injury Research and Policy explain why she worked with a team to create this new prototype.

Both the mechanism and design of the spray bottle are patent-pending and available for licensing through the Nationwide Children's Hospital Office of Technology Commercialization at (614) 355-2818 or Tech.Commercialization@NationwideChildre­ns.org.
