Discussion topics

$12.99 Lead test kit

  • We can find out if we have lead pretty easily with this home test-kit. There are others that are effective, too, according to Consumer Reports (Homax LeadCheck, First Alert Premium *Lead Test Kit*, and Abotex Lead Inspector), all probably about the same price.
  • According to people I've spoken to, this isn't a big deal to deal with if we have lead in our old paint -- mostly just painting over it. -- Mitch.
  • Why are we discussing this? People who are concerned should buy the kit and do the test and report their findings on the wiki or mailing list. Don't talk about doing it -- do it and talk about the results. Adi 18:32, 8 September 2009 (PDT)
