  1. Thank you for the replies. My two daughters that have Celiac live with my ex and I am now remarried. We don't have a lot of gluten in the house but sometimes my husband and step-daughter want bead or pasta. She never leaves the table with it and food is never in out car. That makes things a little easier. I know before we were married and livining together my step-daughter didn't always wash her hands after she was done eating though. As for the toaster. We still have that too. I don't have bread or anything toasted for myself so we don't need two. Right now I'm the only gluten free eatter in the house. If it becomes more of an issue later on we will have a totally gluten free kitchen. Thanks again for your help!
  2. Here is my dilema. Myself and my 2 daughter who live with their father have Celiac. My husband and step-daughter (who is 3 and only with us on the weekend) are not gluten free. We then added a little boy to our mixed family in late December. I have all my step-daughters baby toys like her stacking rings and other plastic things like Mega Bloscks. I'm going to be keeping my son gluten free until I feel he is old enough to try. Now, I know my step-daughter did not wash her hands after eating when she was younger before she played with her toys. Will washing all these plastic toys in bleach and or soapy water be good enough to prevent cross contamination to him and myself or will I need to replace all the toys? Thanks for the help!
