Product Description

Amazon.com

This complete test kit can be used to easily check for poisonous lead on any surface including: toys, dishes, paint, dust, mini-blinds, food cans, plumbing, water, and other items. The kit can be used in your house to test up to four separate surfaces for lead content and provides immediate results.



1) Wipe the toy clean

2) Dip the enclosed cotton swab into the solution provided

3) Rub it on the toy


If the cotton swab changes color - it contains lead. With each First Alert Lead Test Kit you can test at least 4 surfaces making it the most economical solution on the market.

Lead is very poisonous to human beings. Even tiny amounts of it in our blood, measured in millionths of grams (micrograms), can harm our health. Children absorb more lead than adults and are at a higher health risk. More than one million American children may have blood lead levels needing medical attention, and more than one million children may be somewhat mentally or emotionally impaired by lead exposure. If you are concerned about the potential for lead containing surfaces or items in your home, the First Alert lead test kit can be used to confirm or deny your suspicions. --Bree Norlander

Quality control is terrible.
Tinker
Sure enough one twist too hard and the vial broke, leaving glass pieces on the counter.

I tested this kit out on lead solder.

Our dog and myself had been having some issues and I thought there might be a correlation with the painted bedroom set (Made in China)in our Master Bedroom. Some of the headboard was faded, where our dog licks it occasionally. Yes, he is the center of the universe and has slept between my wife and I for fourteen years, since he was a puppy.

Anyway, I scraped some paint chips from various areas of the bed and let them sit in white vinegar, per the instructions, for 4 hours. I then poured the strained vinegar into the plastic test tube a quarter of the way up. I took half a Q-Tip that I cut in two and dipped it into the solution and dropped it into the test tube with the vinegar. I closed the lid and I tipped it once per the instructions and was happy to find out the paint had no lead in it. You will have to supply your own white vinegar.

I then went out to my fishing box and got a lead weight. I cut a slice into it. I took the other half of the Q-Tip I had used before and dipped it into the solution. I rubbed it on the lead weight and the Q-Tip turned a very dark brownish black. So, I know this thing works.

Two other things regarding other reviews:

1. You can check paint the same way as I checked the lead weight, but their secondary instruction states that the result will be far superior by using vinegar, especially with darker colored paints. The reason stated is you don't want the dark paint to give a false reading. Depending on the amount of lead, the Q-Tip can be anywhere from a light yellow to a black, whereas no lead will reflect a white Q-Tip.

2. Some people complained about the solution bottle being too narrow to get the Q-Tip in and out.

This test kit works really well and is easy to use, but you must follow directions and not swab items that need to soak in vinegar first. We swabbed a metal item and got a false positive. When we soaked that same item (as instructed) the test came out negative.

I am very happy with the test kit. I tested many dishes, and one came up positive for lead, so I am pretty confident that the test works. Used sparingly (and using more of my own q-tips than those supplied-only comes with 2 that they say to cut in half for 4 tests), the small vial of lead test solution was actually enough to test about 14 items. Am ordering another kit to test more items. The test solution is stinky-smells like rotten eggs, and they recommend testing in areas with good ventilation, which is appropriate.

I've just finished using this test kit and I'm very happy I bought it. My Grand-daughters received some nesting dolls as gifts and we were all concerned whether or not they contained lead. I took one from each set and made a little cut with an exacto knife to be sure I would be testing through all layers of the colored paint. No reactions on the first areas I tested. Then, I cut & tested an area on the lower part of one of the dolls and it turned black. A thin line of black. I happened to be testing where there was black paint and I wondered if the black paint had "bled" but the swab had a very defined thin line of black.....remember, I cut with an exacto knife. If it had been the black paint the entire tip of the swab would have been affected. We have a door with lead strips that I know are actual lead so I decided to test the door. As expected, the tip of the swab turned black.

The nesting dolls have been destroyed. I now totally trust the First Alert Kit. You have to read the directions thoroughly and do EXACTLY what they tell you. I highly recommend this kit.

The problems with this kit are two, in my opinion. For starters, the instructions are not clear. You are given two ways of performing the test (the rapid one which works for surfaces and the longer one, which takes submerging in vinegar the object you want tested). For water or food I could not find clear instructions. At one point you are told that in order to test water you need to perform the rapid test. But for the rapid test, you are only told how to test surfaces, not fluids.
The second problem is that while the test boasts it can test food and water, the reality is that it can't. Any liquid that is not clear or white cannot be tested since when the test is positive the swab you use is supposed to turn yellow or brown. Now, I wanted to test an imported ayurvedic supplement (which the FDA warns it may contain lead). How exactly am I supposed to do this if the substance to be tested is brown to begin with? The same goes with food. You are not told clearly how to do it, and if you try to use the rapid method (rubbing the activated swab against a surface or dipping it in the fluid) and you are testing anything beyond dairy, then your results cannot be trusted!
All being said, the test did detect some lead in the spoons I had been using, so the kit works for some cases. It just didn't work for what I really bought it for.

I tested this kit out on lead solder. I followed the direction very carefully and repeated the test multiple times. Each time the solder (which is 60% lead) tested negative for lead! I therefore would not recommend this product. This is nothing short of dangerous and should be removed from store shelves ASAP.
