Kitchen Supplies for Avoiding Cross-Contamination

To clean gluten out of your shared college kitchen, use disposable cleaning tools and supplies. Reusing a sponge, mop, or towel just spreads gluten-filled crumbs to other spots. Sharing kitchen tools with gluten-eating roommates may be safe for you if your response to gluten isn’t serious, but if you need to avoid all cross-contamination, dedicate kitchen tools for gluten-free baking.

Here’s a list of helpful cleaning supplies you can use to keep your kitchen's surfaces gluten-free:

1

A mop with disposable pads

Make sure you use a mop, such as a Swiffer, with wet cloths that you can throw away after each time you clean the floor.

2

Disposable paper towels

Be sure to use paper towels for wiping countertops and washing and drying dishes.

3

Disposable scrubbers

Always use disposable scrubbers for cleaning pots, pans, and dishes.

4

Antibacterial spray and wipes

Use antibacterial spray for disinfecting countertops and antibacterial wipes for quick spot wiping counters and floors.

5

Kitchen tools and pans

Dedicate the following items to your gluten-free use: colander, large pot, muffin pan, toaster, cutting boards, aluminum foil, and parchment paper.
