Does This Need To Be Thrown Away?

Recommended Posts

I was recently diagnosed and I read online that anything plastic that is contaminated with gluten cannot be cleaned to remove all of the gluten.  However, in my kitchen I have a rice spoon, measuring spoons, melon baller, and a vegetable knife.  These are all plastic and have been in a contaminated kitchen, but none of them have been used directly on gluteny foods.  Most of it is brand new and hasn't been used at all.  Should I get rid of it or put it in the dishwasher?

I agree, washing them is fine.  If they were beat up and scratched deeply, I'd toss them but as long as they are in good shape, just washing them well is fine.  People tend to go a bit overboard with getting rid of dishes, etc.
