None taken. I am just a poster saying so-and-so on the Internet. The linked handout agrees with my take on residue. I realize that this is an appeal to authority, but the relevant studies and scientific journals are mentioned in the handout.bluebayou said:No offense, but this IS assuming that you know what you are talking about.
I have read that alcohol-based cleaners are more likely to make the lead in the residue absorbed by the body. Makes sense, since non-alcohol swabs are recommended when taking lead samples. Other than that, I really don't want to test this theory empirically. There are plenty of cleaning products on the market that are specifically formulated to remove metals like lead.Why do you add the point about not using solvent based cleaner on hands and accessories?
