I came across an amazing deal on a high chair for my son at a garage sale. $20 for a practically new one in excellent condition!!! Couldn't pass that up since we've just been using a travel one. Then I got it home and realized the tray is scratched up. I've heard that cookware/tupperware that is scratched should be replaced because you can't get all the gluten out by washing it. We can order a replacement tray online, but my husband thinks that if we soak it in bleach it should be ok for my son. Is my husband right or should I just order the replacement tray?

I would think it would be fine since you aren't cooking anything in it. Scrub it well, and don't feed your son soup straight off the tray. :P

Bleach won't really make a difference, go for a scrubby thing or brush instead.

We do put food directly on his tray often. It's the cooking with scratched items that's the issue? I just thought we couldn't use them in general, but I'm still getting used to all this celiac stuff.

Dry stuff shouldn't be a problem. It's the heated/soaking part of cooking that will coax all the stray bits of gluten out of the cracks.

I just can't imagine that the little bit of baby drool that ends up all over everything towards the end of the meal adventure will be an issue. I assume you'd scrub it down wit a mind to getting rid of germs, and the same sort of cleaning will continually get rid of the newly dampened gluten every time.
