    Lead test?

    Hi, I'm wondering if anyone knows how I could go about testing for lead in our apartment? The paint is flaking off the walls, and though I'm sure that the most recent layers of paint are lead-free, I'm worried about the older layers. It's a pretty old building, so I'm sure there's lots of paint on there!

    thanks!

    Look it up online, you can buy a lead paint test kit from the US delivered to HK, inexpensive too. I haven't done it myself but my husband needed a lead test kit for work and I know he bought it online.

    I have seen lead test sticks at the organic shop in Sai Kung - the shop is near Jaspers/the pet shop.

    thanks, guys. I don't think I'll be making out to Sai Kung anytime soon, but I'll check in the organic shops around here.
