A different way 2 test 4 lead paint at home
« on: September 10, 2010, 11:33:48 AM »
I have been given an answer previously, but I can't afford to pay a lab and my housing association won't do it either....There must be a way to test at home.....I've been told that white lead paint after a time turns a "nicotine" yellow.....is this true..

Most oil based paints (with or without Lead) will turn yellow with time.
