Bubble Solution

I know dish detergents can sometimes contain gluten, but today I called an 800 number on the back of my daughter's can of bubbles (you know, the kids stand around in the back yard on a summer day, blowing bubles through a little, yellow, plastic wand), and guess what I found out... not gluten-free! :o

I understand that technically, the medical community says celiacs can't be effected by gluten on the skin, but we're talking about a four-year-old here. She's bound to stick her fingers in her mouth at some point after blowing bubles.

So does anyone know of a gluten-free brand of bubbles? We love to blow bubbles, and I hate to give that up.

Along the same lines, I found out Palmolive dish detergent can't guarantee gluten-free status either. :( (I was thinking we could just make our own bubbles, so I called Palmolive!) Does anyone know of a gluten-free dish detergent -- not the dishwasher kind but the liquid kind?

I had no idea bubbles could contain gluten! All it is is soap and water! Yikes. We used to always make our own. It's way cheaper. But I'm concerned that Palmolive may not be gluten-free. That's the brand of soap we have at work. I might have to go one a campaign to switch brands.

What brand did you discover to have gluten in it? Just so all of us know not to buy this brand.

ack, I hadn't even thought about bubbles - Izak loves them! Do you happen to know exactly what the source of gluten is?? I mean, I also thought they were just soap and water?? Or is it just that they're made in a factory that makes other things that have gluten in them? (more of a cc issue than a direct one?)

HI, I am new here... I know of three options for gluten-free bubble solutions for children (I was researching this today, which is how I found this list- my mom-in-law wants to bring the kids a giant bubble wand today when she visits):

1. the bubble baths by California Baby (and all their products) are gluten free and nontoxic and all natural/organic ingredients. They even include a bubble wand. This is an expensive but healthy alternative. See www.californiababy.com. We use their supersensitive line for bathsoap, shampoos, and bubble bath for our kids.

2. the bubble solution by Gymboree is apparently gluten free but the rep I spoke to did not exude confidence- more of an "I believe/am pretty sure it is gluten-free... here are the ingredients: glycerin, water, aqueous surfactants- miracare MHT, lauramide DEA" one disadvantage to this solution is that it contains some fairly toxic chemicals (actually so do regular bubble solutions) such as lauramide DEA

3. homemade solution: 1 cup water, 2 Tbsp glycerin, 4 Tbsp gluten-free dishwashing liquid.

I hope this helps!

Whew, glad to hear that about the Gymboree bubbles. That's what my daughter uses and I love them because they don't stain anything.

Hi, me again, I did call the company that makes our dishwashing liquid and it is gluten free. We use Ultra Dishmate by Earth Friendly Products.

    • Update: I have been taking Chanca Piedra (specifically, Royal Break-Stone, by Whole World Botanicals) on an empty stomach in the morning for the liver-gall bladder and surprisingly my lips are almost normal. I know the peeling lips may be caused by different issues but I hope this info helps someone.
    • Hi Cristiana, I'm so sorry that you are still not feeling well.  When do you go back to your Dr? I wish I could help more, but it's so hard to know what was what when I was on the PPI.  I was diagnosed with celiac and h. Pylori on the same day so I was already feeling awful.  Then I was put on 2 antibiotics with the  PPI.  I do remember feeling terribly nauseous, but just assumed it was the antibiotics.  When I started tapering, I still wasn't feeling well.  It really took months before I started to feel decent.  But I assume that it was the celiac. I really hope you start to see some improvement...((((hugs))))
    • @scorpio it has now been almost 2 years and I am curious if you ever found something that worked for you. My boyfriend suffers from EC as well and I am desperate to find a resolution for his sake. He's been dealing with it for over a year now and it is taking a toll on his work and social life.   Any updates would be helpful
    • I am going through the diagnosis stage as well. My family has strong history for celiac disease, and while I always had discomfort and other symptoms ( some of which i didnt know about) I wasn't tested until recently because I was DEATHLY afraid of needles. The results are highly positive but I am still getting a biopsy in early August. From what I have learned about it is that the endoscopy is beneficial to looking for not only signs of celiac but also other diseases that have similar symptoms to celiac. Because of your mixed result it wouldn't hurt to get a biopsy but it really is personal preference. I understand what you are going through and didn't like the idea much either but I really think it is something that can help you in the long run. P.S. There are lots of testing being done for new medications or other ways to "cure" celiac other than a gluten-free diet. It is my understanding that this can only be covered by insurance with a confirmed diagnosis (biopsy) but I don't need to get into that. The bottom line is that a biopsy is confirmatory especially since the doctors could see in the intestine, so to me, I feel better knowing that there's no chance of going gluten-free for nothing.
    • Hi Everyone!  Thank you for all your responses!  This site is so helpful and I appreciate everyone who replied to my post.   I was able to get an earlier appt with Maureen Leonard who was absolutely wonderful like you all said and after more testing and even a genetics test, my son now has a diagnosis of celiac disease.  He's been gluten free now for a few weeks.  He is doing very well on the diet so far.  He does seem to be sleeping better which was always a problem since he was an infant, so that is a good sign!  We test in 3 months and I hope that his iron levels go up.
