Home Cleaning Products

Recommended Posts

Do the cleaning products that are used around the home need to be gluten-free? If items get washed with detergent containing gluten, but are rinsed off...such as your clothing and dishes or if you are cleaning with a gluten item, but always wash your hands before eating anything, do you have to be that careful with the products? And if so, is there a list of which dish, clothing detergents and home cleaning products are gluten free? I don't have any skin sensitivities or allergic reactions to anything. I am very careful with my food and personal products, but am trying not to be paranoid of everything else. Thanks for your help.

It makes sense to have gluten-free cleaning supplies. It would be one less thing to worry about, for sure! First of all, gluten will irritate my skin, so my detergent/softener need to be gluten-free. But if it wouldn't bug me, I'd still use gluten-free detergent. It would drive me nuts to the point of paranoia if I thought my clothing had gluten on it!

The same goes for everything else. I wouldn't want to be spreading gluten all over my house when I am cleaning! That defeats the purpose, in my opinion.

And no, just rinsing will NOT get gluten out of anything. Only cleaning with another, gluten-free solution, would get rid of it.
