P.s. The stuff is really nasty on your skin. I also had to go to the ER once to get it washed out of my eyes when I caught a back splash. Protect yourself well.
The stripper with methylene chloride presents another serious airborne respiratory hazard--gaseous, not particulate as is the lead. In addition, as the previous responder noted, you need to wear chemical splash goggles and gloves to protect yourself.
Respiratory protection is required for both lead and methylene chloride. And be sure that you don't create a bigger exposure by allowing the lead to be spread throughout the home.
More info on respirators and goggles can be found at www.msasafetyworks.com. Good luck with your project!
