Disowning The Hametz

Disowning The Hametz
Day: Tuesday
Date: March 25, 2014
Parshat: Tazria, Hachodesh
Source: Yalkut Yosef: 434

After the bedika, one should take any remaining hametz that he needs for that night or the next morning and out it all in a safe location so that it won't get spread around. When eating one should also take care to eat over something for the same reason. After one is done eating hametz the next morning he should brush his teeth to remove any crumbs that may be stuck between his teeth. After the bedika one should declare that he is disowning any hametz in his possession. Many prayer books have a text to say in Aramaic when disowning the hametz. However, one must say it in a language he understands. If he did not understand what he said it doesn't work and he still owns the hametz. After burning the hametz the next day we again disown the hametz.
