One thing that I know can be confusing is you use a product and then have a reaction or get sick. I'm going to say the evil statement no one likes ~ It Might not be Gluten that made you sick~. I've had some strange reactions that I've had to link back to things to figure out what they were, and they weren't gluten! I've found out the hard way in my life, I'm allergic to penicillin, wasp stings, dyes in detergents, scents in detergents, naproxins, sulfa, wool among other things. So when I get hives, and or start tossing my cookies, we play "what have we eaten or touched in the last 48 hours." Some reactions can take hours after initial contact to show up, and in extreme cases over 24 hours. That's where I come in, in extreme cases. Try remembering everything you ate, touched, came in contact with, the last 24 hours, and what might have been an allergen.
So back to weird things that might contain gluten. Some of the weird ones were Toilet Paper, Floss, and Razors, I've covered Lip Balm already and Shampoo. I was shocked the usual 'Glue on stamps and envelopes' did not come up. -

As for Razors containing Gluten ~ One thing to keep in mind is you can use an electric ladies razor, which is rechargeable, and saves you the out of pocket cost of a new razor regularly. Or you can also use hair conditioner to lather up your legs and get a plain old razor. Either of those are another option. I don't know about you, but I always use up my shampoo before the conditioner, so this wouldn't be a bad option to even out my bottle use.

Then it came up, Diapers containing wheat... What? Why? Seriously? Well for Celiac disease this isn't really an issue, but for babies with diaper rash, could they have a wheat allergy? Plus if you've rid your home of gluten, would you want to bring diapers with wheat into your home? So here are the ones that I found that listed Wheat on their websites.
