Good 2 Know!!!

Did you know hot tap water causes nearly one-fourth of all scald burns among children and is associated with more fatalities and hospitalizations than other hot liquid burns. Hot water burns usually happen in the bathroom and tend to be more severe and cover a larger portion of the body than other liquid burns. A child exposed to tap water at 140 degrees F for just three seconds will sustain a third-degree burn; severe enough to require hospitalization and skin grafts. Turn down the temperature of your home's hot water heater to 120 degrees F to avoid hot water injuries, and always test your baby's bath water before you put them in.
