For each post here on the Lead Safe Mama blog, there are category keyword tabs at the top of the post. Each of those words is a link to the category, and you can get to that category overview (to see all of the posts in that category) anytime, by clicking on any of those linked keywords.
I am working on writing summary posts for each category (like this one), so my readers will be able to see all of my posts written for some of the more popular categories on my blog, easily (at a glance). There are currently more than 30 summary posts live on the blog – with another 30 in the works. To see all of those in one list click on the “Summary Post By Theme 2020” clickable keyword at the top of the post. When you get a list of results with a search please note that there are only 8 posts shown per page but there is a handy “next page” link at the bottom of the page if your search has more than 8 results (which many do)!
This post has links below to quickly and easily view all of the Glass Milk Bottle posts on the Lead Safe Mama blog. But first:
- Here is an important post that has a video to help people understand how to Navigate the (more than 2,600) posts with information (including consumer goods test results) here on the Lead Safe Mama blog! Post Link.
- Here’s the category overview link for Glass Milk Bottles. When you click this it will come up with a set of at least 5 posts (at the time of publishing this) that you can scroll through to see all of the related posts: Category Link.

A common question with items like this is “but the Lead paint is only on the outside…” (of the dish or other food use item)…”so why is this a problem?” While this is discussed specifically in some of my milk bottle posts, here’s my general answer to that question: LINK.
- Here’s a post about how to send an item in for testing (to add it to the database of information here on the blog.) – link
- Here’s a post with details on how you can make a contribution in support of this work. Thank you!
Additional important reading if you determine your dishes (or housewares or other consumer goods) may have unsafe levels of Lead:
- Symptoms of Lead exposure in adults (including possibly symptoms of low-level chronic Lead exposure one might experience from eating daily off of high-Lead dishes.)
- An answer to the common statement: “But I ate off of these my entire life and I’m fine!”
- A post discussing the potential concerns of daily usage of Leaded dishes for food use purposes.
- A post discussing why home test kits do not work on most dishes. [They do work on most glass milk bottles, however!]
- A post discussing what you should do with these items now that you know they may have unsafe levels of Lead.
As always, thank you for reading and for sharing posts from the Lead Safe Mama blog. Please let me know if you have any questions and I will do my best to answer them personally (as soon as I have a moment!)
