Gf Household Products?...
0

8 posts in this topic

My product listing of gluten-free products has listings for household products like diswashing liquid and laundry detergent and stuff like that.

If I don't have dermatitis herpetiformis, do I need to use these? There aren't many gluten-free ones listed. The only cleaners I'd be able to use are Seventh Generation (expensive!) and I'll miss my Cascade for the dishwasher (hate Polmolive!).

Is there a concern with the dishwasher gel getting into the food? Doesn't the heat and water get rid of it? What would the risk be (if any)?

Thanks,

donna

you should defenitley use all gluten-free household produccts. even if you don't have Dh they can still affect you skin. i get rashes and eczema from gluten when i just touch it. the heat might get ri out the gluten and it might not, you never want to take that risk, use all gluten-free

you know what... call the company of the products. i see no reason why diswashing gel or laundry detergent would have gluten in them - and have never seen an ingredient to suggest as such. some one on here - a while back - contacted proctor and gamble on all their household cleaning products, and were told they had no gluten-containing ingredients. so a call to the company may allow you to use all the stuff you prefer.

(though i can't stand regular dishwasher gels... the cascade reeks of chlorine. ;-) trader joe's has an environmentally friendly option that isn't as expensive as the seventh generation stuff.)

Tiffany,

Where do you get "Trader Joe's"? Through the mail? I've never seen it - not even at Whole Foods Market today - the only place left that would have sold it around here (MA).

thanks,

donna

Trader Joe's is a "grocery store" of sorts. More of a specialty store, but one with cheap prices and good food. I'm not sure I can describe it well to someone who hasn't been to one. ;-) It's pretty unique.

Anyway, here is their page listing their stores in Massachusettes: MA Trader Joe's Locations.

Last time I checked Cascade was gluten-free.

I try to get gluten-free household products just because of the chance of getting some in my mouth accidentally. I do have DH but gluten products on my skin do not cause the DH to flare. Most experts think you have to swallow the gluten even for DH.

-------------------------------------------------

Never thought of that. I'm calling Cascade...

Hmmm...the lady at Cascade told me that none of their products have gluten. That Proctor and Gamble is very careful to list any known allergens to their packaging as a warning to consumers. She said "I looked for gluten and cassien on the prod. info. and there wasn't any. I explained to her that it wouldn't be listed neccessarily that way and she insisted that the products are gluten-free.

I'll give it a try. I've got a huge box of the 2in1 packets from BJs and don't wanna throw them away! We'll see....

    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I'm ok, just a little tired right now.  Lots of stress getting elderly parents and in-laws taken care of. My thyroid took a dip low (no surprise there) so I had to increase dose by a quarter grain. Overall, I am not dragging all day but waking up and getting going in the morning is slowwwwwwwww.  I'm sure you understand that! Yeah........Barty.  I thought of her for DAYS on end and it just saddens me to no end that such good people are the ones being taken.  Sometimes life is just so unfair. We all know that but there are times when it really hits you in the gut. There are times I think they are the lucky ones with the way the world is going these days. This terrorism plague is unnerving and I am really getting mad about it. Dear God, please stop this shyte!  I also miss nvsmom and others who have not been heard from. I hope she is feeling better and is just busy with life.  I got glutened on vacation about 6 years ago on the first day in Liverpool.  Jeez, was I sick!  I know how you feel but take heart........that was the last time I was bagged on vacation.  The longer you are gluten free and heal, the faster you recover from hits. You also get very good at not being glutened. It has been almost 2 years since it happened to me last so after 11 years gluten-free, I think I am doing well with that. I still have a little work to do with the vitamin D levels but I work so seeing much sun isn't happening.  My levels have doubled but they are still under 50. This whole Celiac thing is a part time job!

      Hang in there SLLRUNNER...it is hard and frustrating.  Good job getting that appointment moved up.  I've done too...I've called daily looking for cancellations.  I can also remember counting down the days until my appointment.  ((((Hugs)))) and please let us know how it goes.
    • So I've been glutened....
      Miso soup has gluten in it, doesn't it? =/ I know that I've been avoiding it, which is a big shame because I adore miso!
    • Kissing and gluten
      Hi guys. I know this is a topic that has come up before, but I'd appreciate a little bit of advice. I've been 'courting' a guy for the past few months; nothing has happened yet but we have a proper date in a few weeks which is likely to lead to kissing. He didn't even know what a ceoliac was until a few days ago; I don't think he'd caught the hints that I'd been dropping beforehand. English isn't his first language - he's east Asian. Anyway, I've heard about being potentially glutened via a kiss. How do I broach this? I don't want to scare him off or make him think that I'm a lot of hard work; I know, I know, he's going to have to accept me as I am, etc. but for someone new to the entire thing, it is likely overwhelming. It would be for me if I'd never heard of it! Do I laughingly bring it up beforehand? We aren't going for food so if he isn't eating, just having a cup of tea, will I still need to be careful? If this seems safe, do I just let him kiss me and then bring up afterwards that any future kisses after food will have different precautions?  It all feels so clinical! He's a lovely guy so I do think he'll be understanding, but if anyone has any advice of first hand experience on how to approach the topic without it being a weird moment, that would be great.  
    • gluten-free...how long til I feel better?
      Hi there.  I had been sick for over a year and decided to try and go off gluten within 4 weeks i started to feel better than i had for so long! But my problem is now i test negative for celiac because i have no gluten in my body. I have been told to go back on gluten so it can be determined if i have it or not but im not willing to go back to feeling that sick again!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
