This is one of those ideas that seems so obvious, I’m kicking myself for not coming up with it first.
As we’ve discussed many times in the past, it’s not just accidentally eating gluten that can make us sick. The cross-contamination risk poses just as big a danger and I’m convinced that when I go through a spell where I’m just not feeling right (like sleeping half the day yesterday), it’s because of the cross-contamination.
Let’s face it, unless you keep a completely gluten-free house, the dang gluten can lurk in a lot of places.
And what have we done up to this point to label things gluten free? Makeshift labels using masking tape and sharpies. Or even more barbaric…writing directly on the item itself.
Not the best solution…at all.
So when I met Kelly, a fellow celiac from GlutenFreeLabels.com who has a pretty amazing celiac story, and she gave me some of her new gluten free labels to try out, I was totally psyched.
It’s now a month later and I’m even more psyched. We use them throughout our kitchen and they have held up unbelievably well.
Take a gander at the picture above and to the right. That label on my gluten free cutting board has been through the dishwasher a whole bunch of times and it still looks brand new (the label…not the cutting board). Pretty cool.
Where else do I use the labels?
Alright…enough jib jab…how can you get the labels?
Simple. Just click the button below. Oh…and she’s offering free shipping through Mother’s Day.
Stay safe…with style.
Now if somebody would just make gluten-free labels for people, I could avoid this:

Hey, GD, congrats on your “Blogger of the Year Award”! Goes to show you how much your efforts are appreciated. You’ve “grown” a community where we can share info, vent and have a few laughs along the way and isn’t that what it’s all about.
Thanks tons Sue. I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished here. Lots more awareness to raise.
Yay @ your win for Blogger of the Year Gluten Dude! *I voted for you LOL* You totally deserve it!
Blogger of the year…you bleeping rock. Love the labels. Checked the address and i pass through washington’s crossing every day. You all have to check out her website, cool blogs and recipes.
First of all, CONGRATS on the blogger of the year award!! You definitely deserve it, and though I don’t comment much here I always read your posts. Now that that’s said… OMG haha this article reminds me so much of my kitchen. (Being the only celiac at home) everything gf is labelled, with a sharpie or piece of paper with my name taped on of course haha So, I’m definitely trying a more serious approach like you did haha
First off congrats on your award. Thanks for posting this. These labels are so cool, especially the dishwasher safe ones!
Those look like a grand idea for those who live/work with WEs. 🙂
And congrats, my friend on a well-deserved award!
I’ll tell the hubs he can to stop hitting the “vote” button every 15 minutes now.
Thanks to everyone for your kudos and special thanks to Irish Heart’s husband 🙂
Congratulations Gluten Dude! I just blogged about you, too. I think your site is great!
Love the stickers. When my daughter was little we used to put smiley face stickers on all the foods she could eat. Especially like the one for the sponge.
Congratulations on the award, you now officially the best 🙂 . We all knew it.
There should surely be a related award for best spouse of gluten free blogger, we know Mrs Dude would have to win that.
Nice labels too.
I ordered some labels when I was going through diagnosis. If you’re living on the right hand side of the pond, I strongly recommend getting some inexpensive address labels. Mine live on the butter tub, my toaster, and anything else that might get muddled. Mine read:
Mum’s Gluten-Free Stuff
NO toast crumbs
It keeps the Wheaties in order!
