I did a search but could only find some old threads about it.

 

I was thinking about this yesterday...What do you think? Does having a gluten free dish soap matter if you do not have skin issues when coming into contact with gluten?

 

At home I currently use Ajax dish soap (I'm pretty sure that when I went gluten-free originally I looked this up but I'm sending them an email to ask again), and I use whatever soap my boyfriend happens to have at his place. But maybe I need to be more careful.

 

It makes me think because at restaurants we cannot control what soap they use on the dishes or what hand soap they have in the bathroom.

Unless you are eating dish soap or have an active allergy to a listed ingredient in the soap, it should pose no problem.  Dishes are generally rinsed well after washing anyway so what you use on your dishes is not a concern.  I have never screened soap for gluten, am extremely sensitive and have never had a problem in 9 years gluten-free.  One less thing to worry about!  :)

Thanks Gemini. It seems like every few months something crops up that I hadn't thought of before. Glad this one isn't an issue. :)

Yeah, what gemini said.  Dish soap is made to rinse off, so if you feel like looking it won't hurt, but I think it isn't going to be worth too much effort.  I always buy the basic kind anyways, I avoid the ones with hand moisturizers in it and such because I don't want moisturizers left on my dishes, haha. I use seventh generation fresh citrus and ginger because I LOVE the nice mild and fresh smell, and it actually says gluten free on the back.  But I only use it because I like to sniff it while I am hard at work, haha,

Most studies have shown that gluten only affects you if you digest it. That being said, some people have reported getting rashes. I personally don't worry about dish soap.

Rashes usually occur from a skin allergy to an ingredient in the product.....it is not a celiac reaction, unless you drink dish soap that contains gluten.

I am on the hunt for gluten-free dish soap because it's bubble season again and we make our own.  Since the kids are playing in them and running through them it seems essential that they're safe.  It hasn't been easy finding options though!

I know Dawn USED TO BE gluten-free, but that info isn't recent. I can't see why they would have added gluten to their formula, but I bet if you wrote to them they'd answer you.

Biokleen says all of their products are gluten free. The fourth question down in this FAQ's link says so:

Their dish soap is good and I LOVE their Spray & Wipe All Purpose Cleaner so much that I buy it by the case from amazon. It's great if you don't like heavily scented products.

I don't know if cleaning products need to be gluten free for us, but it does give me some peace of mind using them.

Thanks for the lead! It still is and I'm going to make a huge batch of bubbles soon.

Come on Spring!!

Funny to see this thread. I was not concerned about soaps until the other day when my toothbrush had a dreadfully strong hand soap taste.

Yuck!

It turned out that  my little girl had decided to help clean the bathroom, so she had doused all the toothbrushes in liquid hand soap.

I checked out the label; no  mention of gluten but lots of other garbage!

 

I found it sort of weird to be checking the soap (why would they need that anyway?) but you never know.  I was glutened around that time, but I think it was  a cc issue, or trace amounts from non-dedicated lines in corn chips.

Tisk, tisk.

    • Turkey, vacuum pack it, you can use it later for soups, stews, sandwiches, omelettes etc. Will keep for months in the freezer

      Dressing,
      You can use it in various ways my fun thing to do with it is moisten it back up a bit and load it into a waffle maker these can then be frozen or eaten when ever, dressing and sausage flavored waffles are AWESOME.
      Other leftovers can be put in a icecube tray and froze these cubes can be kept in a bag in the freezer, they are perfect for just putting a few in a bowl and zapping in the microwave later for quick meal, I love stir frying them in with eggs.

      Gravy, Gravy can be frozen in icecube trays, and kept in bags, you can then put these over bread, mash, etc and melt them over them later in the microwave or use in a soup like a stock to add flavor.

      Most Desserts can be frozen but around here I have hardly ever had any last the next week.

      Mashed potatoes, again these can be loaded into icecube trays frozen and kept in bags for quick reheat and use meals. Goes great in soups later to thicken them up. Green beans, after thanksgiving....you might want a new flavor thankfully the green beans can be incorporated into another cuisines using spices, in a soup or stir fried Asian style in coconut secret teriyaki sauces.
      Casserole dishes honestly freeze quite well in may cases, I have not had many survive the next week but often you can top them other other cuisine spices or sauces and fry them up in a skillet or reheat in a bowl for something different.  
    • Appreciate the thorough responses.    The stomach issues have been dreadful the past few weeks and brought hurrendous awakenings.the worst I have slept in a long time. I have had a few gluten foods in all honest. Maybe a mcdonalds twice in 2 months. Which isnt ideal. But I dont seem to feel anything afterwards (terrible excuse I know)  My biggest worries were my memory and cognitive behaviour! I was in London Bridge station and forgot where I was heading for 15 minutes. My memory is terrible, as is the concentration. So its a bit of a battle at the minute and I am flunking in my new job. I feel like as you said, neurologically I have deteriorated. Wit and brain function out the window. Considering I was a pretty switched on person. Balance and diziness at points. (all this on a gluten free diet after 4 months triggered me too my mcdonalds binge) ha ha.  I think the memory was the worst.    As you said about the brit medical side being useless. I think you are correct. I understand its the NHS and free etc. But this is just not considered a worry. Ive considered pulling myself into A and E this past few weeks because of the pain and I know this is the only way anyone will give me a thorough look over. I was also sent for a bone scan ( no reasoning as to why) But from research it seems to be for searching the nutrients in the bone?    Neurological side has been really i think what has been the toughest. My job requires an awful lot of high concentration and memory. Which when I fail at, causes stress, and then I am caught in the vicious cycle! Thanks for the help guys. Nice to meet some fellow people who can relate. I just feel like celiacs seem to know more then the doctors, which shows primitive practice in order to solve it. Once again, I would never know the NHS or doctors. I understand free health care is health care. But how low on the list this is, is a worry.    
    • I get vomiting with large amounts of gluten, and motion control loss, followed by either Diarrhea or constipation for a week was back in June 2016 when I decided to eat at a new place, I was on my floor unable to move vomiting so hard there was blood in it.
      NOW trace amounts I have gotten sense then and confirmed via Nima Gluten sensor then following lab testing have show that for me I get constipation, gas, bloat, and nerve issues with fog and peripherally neuropathy. The vomiting was missing from stuff confirmed at 6ppm, but obvious other nerve and fog issues were apparent (I kept dropping stuff and walking into things, mind kept on wondering and having those what was I doing moments, topped with backed up to hell with painful gas)
      Everyone is a little different and symptoms seem to change and evolve with time and type/form of exposure. I used to get a angry Mr, Hyde rage mode, and weeks of constipation and I used to not have the motor loss issues just brain fog and looping thoughts. It changes

      The cause is mostly due to your antibodies going up and your immune system attacking your own body, where it attacks, how, and to what degree greatly varies and after a exposure it can take weeks to wind down off the response and for the antibodies to go down. Just giving a basic idea here.

      Once you get exposed all you can do is treat the symptoms and wait it out, up supplementation of b vitamins, magnesium etc. Take pepto, or Imodium depending on what you have, teas and bone broths and try to eat easy to digest foods for the next week, Mushed up, blended, purreed, stewed/steamed super soft foods.
    • Hi everyone,  Once again I am here looking for your help. I was diagnosed with Celiac less than a year ago. It took quite a while to find out because I didn't experience any particular symptoms after eating gluten. I was always tired, had memory problems and was frequently ill; sometimes I had gastrointestinal issues, but they came and went.  Last night I went out for dinner, to a Thai place I trust(ed). Later, I could hardly sleep, I had horrible nightmares, those where you can hardly tell apart when you are awake or not. I expected to have high fever but nothing!  Today all my body aches, I am very tired and was nauseated all day. A little bit gasy and bloated as well.. Was I glutened?? Did I already clean my body enough that I now start to react in this fashion? If so, why does that happen?  There is also gastroenteritis going around, that would be the alternative explanation. I thought I excaped it. I also didn't vomit or have diahrrea like the rest.  What do you think?
    • With a positive EMA and a positive tTg, that is a slam dunk for Celiac Disease.  If you read about testing results, the odds are 99% that you have it. You also had very high numbers on your testing so that adds to the diagnosis.  At this point, the biopsy, if you have it done, is to check for the amount of damage, and is not needed for a diagnosis. I declined the biopsy as I was very sick at diagnosis.  The doctor who ran my blood panel said there was no doubt I had it due to the high numbers on my blood work.  I have been gluten-free for 12 years and every single doctor I have ever seen since then, who whined about me not having the biopsy, shut up about it once they saw my initial blood work.  The difference in my health since going gluten free was nothing short of amazing. I am sure you will have the same results, once you go gluten free.
