The Safe Taps Story

The Safe Tap Stickers started as an idea many years ago when Lynne Rice was a young mother. "When my kids first began showering and bathing independently, I wanted to keep them both safe from hot water scalds. After experiencing a few near misses in the shower with my reddened child bursting from the shower cubicle, I looked for a bathroom product to help. I needed something that clearly identified the temperature and action of each tap. There was nothing available and so I came up with the two colour graded arrow symbols. The kids loved them and other mothers wanted them for thier bathrooms too!"

NOT JUST FOR KIDS - During the process it became apparent that my Safe Tap Stickers could be helpful to other vulnerable sectors of the community, including aged care and disability support.

What to do when scalded by hot water

Burn and Scald Care - If you have been scalded by hot tap or shower water there are 6 things to remember.

1. Immediately get the person away from the heat source to stop the burning. 2. Cool the burn with cool or lukewarm running water for 20 minutes – do not use ice, iced water, or any creams or greasy substances like butter. 3. Remove any clothing or jewellery that's near the burnt area of skin, including babies' nappies, but do not remove or move anything that's stuck to the skin and seek medical advice ASAP. 4. Make sure the person keeps warm by using a blanket, for example, but take care not to rub it against the burnt area. 5. Use painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen to treat any pain. 6. If the face or eyes are burnt, sit up as much as possible, rather than lying down – this helps to reduce swelling.

"Very happy with my SafeTap Stickers. They were so easy to apply, stick well and look great. Such an easy way to add safety to my bathroom for my both my grandkids and all."

"Received some hot & cold signs for a problem I have in a rental property. The signs arrived quickly by post. They were exactly what I wanted. Was not sure how they would last in a harsh shower environment with cleaning, soap etc. They are working out really well, same as the day I put them on no colour change or peeling. A1+ product - Thanks."

"Love my bathroom stickers. So easy to apply, neat and tidy. They just look like part of the bathroom. Love that they are teaching my 4 year old hot from cold, a reminder to my 8 year old and they are there ready once my 1 year old is ready to learn hot from cold also."
