Hi Ron, hi Zoe, hi all...and...

Is not the duration of the 'what' as is in the suspect
vessel of import?

As well as what the 'what' is, as IS in it...?

A 'Lead Glaze' Bowl from 1910 say, with dry popped Popcorn
in it...sitting for hours...

Verses, with left over Spaghetti Sauce or Marrinaide in it
over-night in the 'fridge...

Big difference I would think...

A ('suspect') Mug say...with a quick glass of Water in it
for five seconds...verses something like 'tang' or Orange
Juice in it for a few hours...

Big difference...I would think...
