A new laundry detergent advertisement from Tide showcases potential dangers that are common in many homes. There are 11 things in this room that could seriously harm the little boy sitting on the floor. How many can you spot?

Additional dangers that aren’t shown in the picture include button batteries (which are not only poisonous when swallowed, but are corrosive and burn your insides), and a dog’s bowl or pail of water.
