A simple test to check if your dishes are lead free

colorful-dishesI just read a way to test whether your mugs have lead:

“Microwave test for mugs: Put an empty mug in the microwave, also put in a measuring cup full of water. Run the microwave on full
power for 1 minute. When you take the mug out it should not be hot. It should feel normal. If it is hot, then it has either lead in the
glaze or moisture in the ceramic, which means fine cracks in the glaze. (either are no good). I did this and some of my older mugs
were scorching hot, the newer corelle were cold.”
