Other Instances of Dyeing on Shabbat

Other Instances of Dyeing on Shabbat
Day: Thursday

Parshat: Vayetze
Yalkut Yosef: 320, Hazon Ovadia

In memory of Ettel bat Harav Chaim Shalom.

Very often in public restrooms there is a blue soap tablet which colors the water each time the toilet is flushed. There are some Poskim that don't allow and some Poskim that do allow one to flush such a toilet on Shabbat. Our custom is to be lenient and to do so even though the water will be colored since it will get washed away after a short time. It is permissible on Shabbat to eat or drink staining food and drinks off of paper utensils even though the utensils will be colored.

The DSH is brought to you in memory of Rabbi Mordechai ben Daniel. Please visit us online at
