Please watch this video sent to me by Sommer Poquette of Green and Clean Mom. She is taping Jess of the Green Phone Booth and Jennifer of Smart Mama. Jess has just handed Jennifer her brass keys to test for lead and other carcinogenic materials. A lot of parents give their kids a set of keys to play with. Many kids suck on them as well.
Jennifer tests household decor and products for toxic chemicals especially children toys with her XFR gun. You will be surprised when she tests the keys and Sommer’s purse.
What do you think Jennifer found? Lead. She explains that NO lead level is safe for kids.
And how about Sommer’s purse which is made out of PVC? Lead again. My favorite part is after Sommer learns her purse has lead in it, she questions Jennifer how she should she dispose of it. Jennifer calmly tells Sommer to take it to her county hazardous waste center. Now, I would like a video of that! To paraphrase Jess, that would raise an eyebrow or two!
Check out Jennifer’s website about her availability to test your home for toxic materials especially toys. (Read my article about toxic toys.) Thanks, Sommer for providing us with this video.
