Traveling is exciting, but
is dependent on a multitude of details.
You have a thousand things to remember.
Overlooking even one thing can mean hassles
and frustrations. If you are leaving your
home to go on vacation, here is a checklist
to help you get ready.
Make sure the pull-cord
loops on older window blinds and drapes
have been eliminated or secured. Cut the
loop of the pull cord just above the tassel
to result in two cords, or keep the loop
taut with a tie-down device that fastens
the cord to the floor or wall.
Hand-test the hot
water temperature. A child can suffer third-degree
burns in a matter of seconds if exposed
to water above 120 degrees F. Most rental
homes do not have anti-scald devices or
renter access to the water heater thermostat.
Hand-test the water upon arrival to avoid
accidental scalding in the bath or shower.
Examine bunk beds
for proper installation and support of the
mattresses. Bunk bed guardrails, like crib
slats, need to be close enough together
to avoid head entrapment. Avoid allowing
children under the age of 6 to sleep in
the top bunk.
Place all household
cleaners and other potentially dangerous
chemicals in a locked cabinet or closet.
Inspect the rental
crib to make certain it is sturdy, properly
assembled and in good condition.
