Identifying asbestos in your Christmas decorations
Many asbestos fibres are not visible to the naked eye, however some visible fibres do appear white creating a ‘snow’ like appearance. If you have any decorations that date before the use of asbestos was banned in 1999, it’s best to be safe and discard of these as an air of caution.
