LeadCheck Negative on Bathtub
Someone in the comments on the post about the Bathtub Delivery mentioned that some bathtubs have lead in the paint or lead in the porcelain so I got one of the LeadCheck test kits recommended by Consumer Reports to check that ours are safe. Fortunately the tests came out negative. Had there been lead the test sticks would have turned pink.
Twenty years ago, back before Will was born and we were getting the old farm house ready for a new baby, I checked all the painted surfaces there to make sure we did not have lead paint. Again a fortunate negative result on all those tests. Our old farm house is lead free.
Lloyd, who we had bought the house and land from, had used a wild assortment of strange colors but none contained lead. He was not at all fond of white. In fact, when he came into the house years later after I had repainted his comment was, “It’s very… white.”
