I think the smell of antifreeze is soooo strong. Maybe I have an extra sensitive sniffer, but I would think along with the label that would be a major tip off Plus, I don't think KoolAid comes premade does it???

+1 on the car stuff staying outside of the house, that just automatically stays either in the car or garage. (I suppose some don't have garages though)

Lots of people serve children fake fruit juices (I call them "bug juice"...because they attract bugs on a hot summer day) and they buy them in huge containers at warehouse club stores. I can see how someone could buy a gallon of bug juice and a gallon of washer fluid at the same store and accidently mix them up. Accidents happen. I'm just glad this woman did the right thing and called for medical assistance for these kids and didn't just try to hide what she did. That's commendable, I think. I don't think she should necessarily lose her babysitting license for this incident.
