I was wondering if some detergents have gluten in them. If they do, do they cause a reaction?

I use Seventh Generation or Arm and Hammer detergents.
They are both gluten free. I personally get problems with certain kinds of detergents so I stick with those two brands.

I actually just called Arm and Hammer today about their detergents and got quite an equivocal answer--they cannot guarantee that their detergents are gluten free, so I switched to Purex Free and Clear because they were adamant that their detergent is completely gluten free. It may seem over the top to worry about detergent--I can't be certain that it causes a reaction, but I am a stomach sleeper, so who knows how many times I've inadvertently slobbered my pillow in the middle of the night. :P

I contacted Arm & Hammer and they said there was possible cross-contamination in their laundry detergent. I broke out in sever dermatitis herpetiformis. Changed to Fab but they will not contact me back regarding this issue. I will change now to Purex Free & Clear and they say NO GLUTEN.

I have definately reacted to laundry detergents. It may not have always been gluten, but something in the perfumes, etc. Thanks for the info about Arm and Hammer! I use Purex Free and Clear, also, and have no more "itchies" :) If necessary, I also have used All Free and Clear, which is also good.

My Tide with Downy was making me break out in hives, and it took more than a month to figure it out! I use All free & clear now and am very happy with it.

I look at comercials for the Tide w/Downy, or some of the new detergents scented with lavendar and think it would be nice to be able to use those :rolleyes: , but I don't dare <_< I'm actually using the All F&C now, as sometimes the stores here don't stock the Purex one.

All Free and Clear is great! We found a genric thats "free and clear" too, alot cheaper but need find out if its gluten-free still. Since my son does not have DH we do not worry as much about it.

Speaking of detergents, does anyone have any suggestions for non-irritating fabric softeners? I'm almost sure that Bounce causes me some problems, but I live in such a dry climate that I need *something* to control static cling from the dryer.

I think it would be worth trying some of the more 'natural' laundry products. We use 7th generation and it works great. You could ck out their fabric softner: http://www.seventhge...c_softener.html

Ecover is also a good brand. I really like their stain stick: http://www.ecover.co...ain Remover.htm

Tide has always made me break out in a rash since I was a little kid!

Era is the only detergent that doesn't seem to bother anyone in the house. I've tried several, and each one has made someone break out in a rash. I guess it's not always related to gluten!

Thanks for the links; I'll check those out!

I did notice that the 7th generation one is mostly soy. I'm pretty sure I have a soy intolerance (still trying to figure this one out); should I worry about that in a fabric softener?

If it isn't a skin issue I wouldn't worry about it personally. I do not use anything with gluten in it of course...but I might use a product that had milk protein in it on my skin, as I have a dairy intolerance.
