Lead In Christmas Lights December 6, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tiffany C @ 10:50 PM

Yes,  the beautiful and colorful lights we all love are coated in lead that rubs off on your hands.  Make sure you wash you hands very well after handling lights.  You may want to wash your clothes that you wore too.  Above all keep your kids away from the lights.  Yeah, right.  That’s easier said than done, but dangerously high levels of lead have been found on popular lights.  CNN did a story on this.  It’s worth the read.
