After discovering what had happened, Emma rushed her daughter to hospital where she was taken to the burns unit to be treated.

The mum later posted about the ordeal in Facebook group Family Lockdown Tips and Ideas Group in order to raise awareness.

She wrote: "I wanted to share an experience that I hope none of you ever have to go through but it's to share the warning as I didn't know the dangers before this happened along with a lot of my personal friends and family.

While in this instance the washing machine tablet in question appears to be made by Aldi-owned brand Almat, the same risks apply to all bio liquid sachets. Emma urged parents to be extra careful and keep liquid gel tablets well out of reach of children.

She continued: "I immediately undressed her and cleaned her up however we must have missed a very small amount."

"We were admitted overnight whilst they treated the burn and we will be seen as an outpatient for new dressings.

"Please, please be aware of these tablets. I knew they posed a risk but thought that was if they ate them not if they got the liquid on their skin."

"Such a small thing can cause this much damage and pain," she added.

A spokesperson for Aldi repeated Emma's warning, telling The Sun: "We would urge parents to keep washing products out of reach of children, in line with guidance on the packaging.

"We wish Willow a speedy recovery."
