I put the gluten-free stuff away so no one accidentally grabs one. I don't have gluten flying in the air, so I don't worry about my water glass sitting on the counter.

Does this rule apply to every gluten-intolerant person or should some people store away their stuff even if there's little chance of aerial gluten?

This is just what I do at my house. If someone was using wheat flour, I would put everything else away. I don't leave my glass of water on the "gluten" counter where they make sandwiches. I don't see how a bread crumb could cross the kitchen and fly up another 8 inches to the counter I leave my glass on. If we need to make a crumby mess, gluten or otherwise, I would clear off the counter of clean dishes, etc. You could certainly store your glasses out & upside down. Especially if they will be sitting out for a while. Keeps them dust free at least.

I try to use some common sense. If I couldn't trust them to keep the gluton crumbs where they belong, I would have to be more careful - like a water bottle or cup with a lid. I realize there are people who would rather not reside in the same state with gluten but I would think they don't have any in their house. :)

then just to double check, I think I'll be keeping my glass out in the open (in a space w/little chance of gluten CC) for about 1 hour not upside down. I think that should be okay?

(Sorry, I'm kinda hypochondriac on this)
