I was reading the posts and saw someone ask about liquid Cascade. No, that will not work. You need the powdered kind, even the new lemon-scented one works.
It is because of the TSP in it. TSP bonds to the lead and cleans it off the floors, walls, windows, shoes, etc.
I used to wash everything, well, not our clothes, but toys, shoes, baby gates, anything the kids touched or tried to chew on was washed with powdered Cascade or else the straight TSP powder that sold at the hardware store.
Also, the rinse bucket with just water is important!
Thanks to the pp for pointing that one out! And the part about never mixing the two. Also, don't forget to change the mopheads frequently.
It was cheaper and safer in the long run for me to move.
It is sad that the government that helped ban lead is lazy about taking care of the problem. You just have to call and call and write and write, but you should be able to get your house lead-free without taking money from your pocket.
the previous links I provided should lead you to the appropriate places and people to call/harrass.
