I requested a free sample of the 3M lead check instant lead test swabs. I tried them today 11-02-14 on a variety of dishes and glassware. I found it easy to use and found out that none of the items I tested had lead. I loved how in included test confirmation card. I used it to double check to see if our plates and glasses had lead. None of them did because the test dot remained orange. I also liked how the instruction pamphlet offered a variety of items this test can be used on from wood to glassware, to even fabrics. I will highly recommend this test to family and friends.

Easy to use and read results to determine presence of lead. Also contains test board to confirm negative results (place a drop of test fluid on a surface known to have lead). Approved for metal and wood, but not yet approved for use on plaster. Of course, this says it tests for lead on surfaces, but to detect lead below the surface, you must make a cut through to the base material (metal or wood).

Piece Of Mind

Comments about 3M Lead Check Swabs (LC-2S24C):

I used this on a home I had just purchased, just to be sure we were safe. I was told the walls were recently painted - and just wanted to be sure they used the right type of paint in the basement. This product is simple to use, and you get results instantly. I can now sleep better knowing my family is not breathing in any toxic substances.

LEAD TEST MADE EASY

By jelaine70

from Goffstown, NH, United States

Comments about 3M Lead Check Swabs (LC-2S24C):

I was sent a free lead test from 3M to review. I have found this to be as easy as 1,2,3. If you have an item you have been questioning in your home whether it has lead in it or not than this is the product to use. Take the stick and squeeze to crack the seal for it to release the liquid needed to test, swab, and wait for it to turn red if it has lead or not. Thank you 3M for the free sample, I now have comfort knowing a coffee mug I was told not to use because it may contain lead is perfectly safe.

I have tried this product to test for lead paint. It was easy to use and I found no lead paint in my house. I recommend this product for use in older homes to check for lead paint.

This test kit is so easy to use. The results are easily understood. A must for older homes. We are so glad that nothing in our home showed positive. The fact that it's works on all surfaces is great. Next... Those discount store coffee mugs!

Comments about 3M Lead Check Swabs (LC-2S24C):

I received this product free to test, and I am very happy that I was chosen to review the product. My daughter is expecting, and we went around her house checking to find lead paint, and we did find some. Thanks to this product, my grand baby will be safe.

Comments about 3M Lead Check Swabs (LC-2S24C):

I was chosen to test & try 3M Instant Lead Test. My house was built in 1966, so my concern over lead in my structure was real! Fortunately, I found no lead in the home…. however, we did find lead in the gazebo floor! No more barefoot for me!

So easy to use

By Joan

from Missouri, United States

Comments about 3M Lead Check Swabs (LC-2S24C):

I was sent a free Instant lead test by 3M. I just love it. Its so easy to use and results are fast. Plus there is no mistaking if your item has lead in it. Just open it, crush it, Shake then swab. If the item you are testing has lead in it the swab turns red. No mistakes. Now I know if some old dishes I have can be used. I was always afraid to use them. But now I know I can. They are safe. YEAH,,, If you have a older home this would be a must buy product to check your paint. Especially if you have kids. I love it. TY 3M for having a great easy product to ease our minds.

Very Clever

By tonywt1

Comments about 3M Lead Check Swabs (LC-2S24C):

Easy to follow instructions , Passed the test on each painted surface. Had to do a little extra squeezing. To get it to work correctly , and did get the dye on my fingers. So I will have orange fingers for a few days. Feel relieved knowing the paint is lead free :)
