Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Handyman Mine was no good
Results showed negative on test surface. When I test on lead paper that comes with package it also showed negative when it was supposed to show positive for lead.

Test kit comes with 2 applicators. We tested porch railings (grey paint) and balusters (white paint) on an old home that had two different colors of paint. The paint is peeling badly and cannot be painted without scraping paint. We pulled off a small section of peeling paint and applied it to the "underside" of the paint chip (the old paint) because we were told the porch had been painted multiple times since the 1980s. Both turned red as advertised revealing old paint was lead paint.

I recently removed carpeting from interior steps and plan to re-finish with stain. Someone suggested that I test to see if there was lead in the paint since it had been carpeted for over 30 years. I followed the simple instructions included with the product and determined in less than a minute that there was indeed lead paint on the stair surface.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lin Bought a house built in 1960
We bought this kit to test for lead in the walls. It is simple and produces quick results. Just make sure you read directions carefully and don't mistake pink on the paper test as positive like we did at first. The swab itself will be red if there is lead and the test paper provided is to confirm negative results only.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Milly Test card stayed orange
As per another customers comment the tester and wardrobe turned orange (as expected) however the test card which contains the lead also stayed only orange and not pink or red as it should. Can you please let me know if my wardrobe would be safe so sand back?

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Toat Accurate results but problem with empty swabs.
I've used four or five packs of these around the house and in three instances have received a pack with only one active swab, the other having no fluid inside it. That's pretty high odds of getting an empty swab and throwing five bucks down the drain so where's the quality control?

Worked when followed instructions. I wish the drip method would have been able to done a few more times but there is a limited quantity of solution available. Overall does work well- we tested positive on some old exteior paint and negative on other old paint in our basement so it definitely works. The test card is also helpful in case there is any doubt if the test is working...
