Self-Defense in your Laundry Room
Bleach: Most people have a bottle of bleach in their laundry room to keep their whites, super white. Throw bleach directly into the face of your attacker!
Anything that burns an attacker’s eyes, lungs or mouth is a great option when your options for self-defense are limited.
Clothes iron: The iron you use for pressing out those wrinkles is heavy and hard! Use it to punch back at an attacker. If the iron happens to be on at the time, burn the attacker with it and run.
Clothes, socks and towels: These can all be used to choke or distract an attacker in an emergency.
Hangers: A regular wire coat hanger can be quickly bent and used as a self-defense weapon. Jab and stab an attacker to defend yourself! Aim for tender areas of the body such as eyes, neck, inner arms and behind the knees.
Ironing board: Just like using a cutting board in the kitchen to create a shield and block an attacker, you can use your ironing board to do the same thing.
Cleaning products and laundry detergent: Any acidic or corrosive cleaning products in your laundry room can be used to blind your attacker. Even powdered laundry detergent can be thrown in an attacker’s face.
