I'm sorry if this has been asked before but I keep finding conflicting info and didn't get much help from the company. Is Windex safe to use as far as spraying it on my glass top kitchen table and accidentally inhaling it sometimes while spraying it on a high window.

Thanks!

Isn't windex just ammonia and chemicals? I wouldn't want to be breathing it in, regardless, but I wouldn't worry about it as far as gluten goes. Someone else may know, though.

What exactly did the company say? That they don't test for gluten?

Putting damp wheat on your glass would be a smeary mess. If you are worried about the product, just use ammonia and a little water.

Gluten is soluble in alcohol.

A vinegar solution would work, too.
Come to think of it, Windex has a formula with vinegar. That may be why you're getting conflicting info, if someone out there is operating under the notion that distilled vinegar is risky.
