Question from Mary
I have seen several discussions on this site about the lead in cords. Would covering them in washi tape be a good idea to reduce lead exposure? Are there any concerns with washi tape?
Or what about painter’s tape?
I’d recommend a fabric cover. You can find hemp or other natural material covers on Etsy. I honestly had to look up washi tape because I had never heard of it. Any tape is going to introduce an adhesive. Washi is typically made from a natural fiber paper but the adhesive can vary by manufacturer. Overall, I don’t think this is a big exposure but if you are going to the trouble of covering your cords why cover them with something that could offgas?
