Lead poisoning can cause a variety of health and developmental problems, and it's been found in old paint, urban soil, cosmetics, and cheap mass-produced toys, to name a few. But for less than $20 you can do some at-home lead testing yourself with LeadCheck swabs. When rubbed across any surface (a vintage decanter perhaps, or a toy) the swabs will turn pink or red on contact if there's lead present. See a video of how it works below:
