I also do the cooking for my husband and I, I am Celiac, he is not. I use my pots and pans for my stuff, his pots and his utensils for his . When I cook I make sure the utensils do not ever touch and there is no cross contamination.I use seperate spoon rests. I have my colander and he has his. I am not a fan of bread anyway so I don't care about the toaster. When it comes to dishes I wash the dishes. I was my dishes 1st. separately , I will then wash his. I let the water run and make sure mine are washed with my gluten-free scrubber and rag. I also separate our laundry :) Cross contamination can be a very big issue. I never lay food on the counter. I always put it on a plate or platter. I have separate platters one for gluten one for non gluten. 

I do the same sort of thing but I put my dishes through the dish washer with the rest of them

my laundry is usually washed on it's own when I've finished work for the week but I didn't think 

about cross contamination in the washing machine..... :blink:

Gluten can't be " killed" so regular soap is fine. It just needs to be washed off. Soap helps stuff like germs and dirt (like gluten ) slide off of skin or your car or dishes or whatever is dirty. There is a big technical explanation, but the simple one is that soap and rubbing and rinsing gets gluten off.


"It can do these things because one part of the soap molecule is hydrophilic (water-binding) and the other is hydrophobic (water-repellent). The hydrophilic part allows the hydrophobic fatty acids to come into contact with other hydrophobic substances, such as the dirt on the surface that is being cleaned. When the grime adheres to the soap's fatty acids, it becomes encapsulated in droplets of water. Dirt, oil and bacteria are easily scrubbed off and washed away in this suspended state. So ordinary soap does get rid of bacteria. But does antibacterial soap get rid of even more?"

Cheer for that......

I made my kitchen gluten free. I figure I cook, so I get to choose. If I don't tell them that dinner is gluten free, they don't even know most of the time.


My family has a loaf of gluten bread and a couple of pots/pans they can use if they want to cook something. I keep all of this far from where I fix food. 


I've threatened them within an inch of their lives if they leave a crumb or don't wash a bowl because I've gotten sick from crumbs left on the counter top.


It can be frustrating finding hidden gluten but you'll figure it out!

True :) I'm definitely going through the paper towels and hand sanitiser after cleaning down the kitchen again......
