I don't know about US laws, but in terms of house size, that was my concern too. We are in a 'starter' home, have 3 children in here and are adopting a 4th. The social worker didn't even bat an eye when she came over. I think if you have a plan - like this is the baby's room or whatever, I can't see why they'd make a big deal of it. The expenses are ridiculous I will say. I think there are a fair amount of grants available in the US (found from my searching) as...

I've already cancelled our summer camping plans.

Wow, what a beauty! congrats!
Well....what happened....did ya test?
I can't imagine it would hurt it, especially once. I think it's fine.

I then rinse it out and let it air dry. I am obviously NOT cleaning it good enough. My problem now is that I CAN'T get the smell out. This is what I've tried: -hot water -baking soda -vinegar -dish detergent -none of these worked, even after soaking so I broke down and poured CLR in it. ...
