Hi all, I'm very new to the world of nut allergies and have many questions.

My son who has oral allergy syndrome was just diagnosed last week with Tree Nut and Peanut allergies.

In the newness of it all, my husband, forgot and ate cashews, then proceeded to handle the TV remote, game remote and they keyboard. Since the proteins are not like a bacteria, how do you clean to completely remove any residues left behind?

Is simply washing with water and soap or a disinfectant such as Lysol enough?
Thanks so much!

Welcome to the forum, Paddy.

Studies have shown that washing items well with hot soapy water is effective on tree nut residue. But since you're dealing with a remote - not a waterproof item - I'd use the Lysol and wipe it really well.

Nuts are a little trickier than other allergens since they can leave an oil residue.

If you have other questions as you adjust to these changes, just let us know if we can help. We've all been through similar here.

I had asked a similar question back in April of this year and got a wonderful response with a link to a study done that eased my mind as to how I'm dealing with cleaning surfaces - whether it be at school or hotel or in your case your house.. take a peek in the Peanut Allergy Forum - the posting was by myself "Miley05" and was April 22/08.
