This piece was negative for Lead, Mercury, Cadmium, & Aresenic.

People often express concern for products from the Dollar (type) stores [Dollar Tree, Dollar Store, Dollar General, 99cent Store] and usually I explain to them that BECAUSE these types of stores were cited for several significant Lead-violations years ago, in my experience the products they sell have become much safer in recent years (if only from a Lead perspective.)

Thank you for reading and for sharing my posts. [When you share my posts I earn $$ to help cover the costs the independent consumer goods testing I do!]

If you want to donate to help me do this kind of testing (where I buy stuff new at a store to test),  to “Chip-In” [via PayPal or with a credit card] Click HERE or you can contribute on GoFundME [LINK.] As an example, this Dollar Tree store trip cost me about $60 including the stuff and the transportation – not including the cost of testing and childcare.

    Are you going to test the white Royal Norfolk plates from The Dollar Tree? That would be a huge blessing…White dinnerware for $1 :):

      It would cost me $20-ish dollars to get over there (uber), I didn’t pick up a white one this round.
