This method results in a very hazardous solution. It should not be dumped down a drain, thrown in the trash, or disposed in any other random area. If your going to do this please be responsible.

The attached link calls out that people arenít comfortable keeping the empty container with the residual solution. That should give an indication of the toxicity of the solution.

Give 'em a good boil in plain white vinegar. They clean right up.

That won't be any less toxic than the mix with hydrogen peroxide and vinegar. It's the acetic acid in vinegar that combines with the lead. I wouldn't want to be in the same room when it was boiled.

Well, I would recommend boiling vinegar on an outdoor stove, lead present or not, unless you want to get skinned when the wife gets home.
