I didn't quite know where to put this post. Recently Dh and I made a sandbox for DS, which he absolutely loves. I don't know why, but I didn't pay too much attention to which wood we got for it - maybe because DH was taking the lead on it. Yesterday I was reading something about the danger of pressure treated wood, and I went outside and checked what wood we had used, and it was in fact ACQ pressure treated wood. Now they say that the ingredients used in ACQ are non-carcinogenic and 'safe', but I have just found marketing sites for the wood, nothing on safety from a third-party. I'm wondering whether I need to get rid of this sandbox and start over??? With summer coming up he will be in there every day and I can't have my baby exposed to toxins!!!! Any resources would be appreciated! Thanks!
