why would gluten or corn in a soap be a problem unless you were going to ingest it?

Do you have a problem with corn? I don't know if they put that in dish soap. You might have to ask the actual companies.

If you can't get the soap all rinsed off the dishes, it could be a problem. I have found that the major ones like Dawn are gluten-free.

If there is corn in dish soap, it's probably been synthesized so it's no longer a problem. That's what happened to the corn in my carpet. You'll have to dig up that thread a few pages back. There's chemistry involved that transforms it. So it's my guess that's what they'd do if they put it into a soap product. Maybe not, though.

I have severe reactions to corn (same as gluten), and have no problem with my dish soap. I use Dawn, the blue one.

I imagine if you have very soft water, you might not get the film off of your dishes. In that case, you should use a dishwasher. Not just because you want the film from the soap off the dishes, but you need to make sure nothing cross-contaminates because you will have a hard time rinsing everything off your dishes - corn, gluten, or lactose. I hate soft water.

I'm guessing from your signature that you think corn might be your last offending food? I'm crossing my fingers for you that it isn't. Corn is in so many foods. I think it's harder to keep a corn-free diet than a gluten-free diet. Still, you can do it by eating mostly unprocessed foods, and by becoming a personal chef.

hmm, I wonder what type of water mine is considered.
well based off everything I really can't tell for the life of me if it's just CC, corn or maybe even fructose.

It's incredibly frustrating lol so alot of the time in desperation I just throw dumb questions out there >_>

thanks for the crossed fingers btw =P

I've tasted the soap in over easy eggs, It made me wonder if small amounts were getting ingested, I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask.

A question to a question, how very helpful.

First - Mummy is new & didn't know why it might matter. Soap residue was probably something she hadn't considered.

Call or email the dishsoap company and ask. Then, if you feel you got a helpful answer, you could copy it to this thread & maybe help someone else with a corn problem.

Corn in soaps makes my skin tingle/burn (like prickly pins and needles) and itch really bad. For example, I was bathing my son a few weeks ago with his regular Aveeno baby body wash and my arms felt prickly like painful pins and needles, so I switched him to what I've been using: Gluten-Free Savonnerie shampoo and local goats milk soap from our farmers market. (Why it didn't occur to me to switch him sooner, I don't know. I blame old age and pregnesia!)

I use Earth Friendly Products Dishmate dish soap, as do a lot of other corn allergy sufferers I know from another forum and have had no corn problems.

I am gluten-free and DF by choice, since I started having reactions to corn a couple of months ago and also because I have an autoimmune disorder, which my new diet seems to have helped. But since I am only gluten-free by choice, I don't know if the Dishmate is gluten-free or not. HTH!
