My husband loves to use things from the kitchen to do all the amazing work he does on our house. For example, right now he is soaking his paint brushes in a metal mixing bowl that I use to make pancakes. Despite my having a PhD in environmental health science, he doesn't believe me when I say it is not healthy to later use utensils (used to stir paint) or dishes (used to store paint). Even though we can't see any paint residue there may be all sorts of chemicals left on the surface of these wares that could be bad, especially for our unborn child. I bet he'd trust you guys. . . What do you think? Is a good idea to allow paint to come into contact with foodware?
