That’s according to a study by the center for injury research and the central Ohio poison center.

The study suggests that while the average poison center calls for eye injuries, from items like cleansers and disinfectants are on the decline, the number of injuries related to laundry detergent pods, have risen since they were introduced in 2012.

Laundry pods are particularly dangerous as they contain concentrated amounts of detergents.
