Have a glass of water with your letters and stamps gluten breakfast!

Did you know that gluten is found in some stamps and envelopes, to make ’em gluey and stick? Yeah. Gluten is found in all the strangest places.

There was a funny episode of Seinfeld in Season Seven called “The Invitations” that aired May 1996: Jason Alexander’s character George is due to be married to Susan, but she dies from licking the toxic marriage invitation envelopes.

Don’t lick your envelopes or stamps!

Use a shot glass filled with water, dip your finger, and run your finger along the sealant. Or you can use a damp sponge.

    Most credible sources on the internet are saying this is a myth. I haven’t licked an envelope for years, but I’m starting to think I had nothing to worry about.
