Spraying Air Fresheners on Shabbat

Spraying Air Fresheners on Shabbat
Day: Tuesday
Date: November 11, 2014
Parshat: Hayei Sarah
Yalkut Yosef: 319

In memory of Ettel bat Harav Chaim Shalom.

Air fresheners and perfumes that are sprayed are not considered to be Zoreh, and therefore it is permissable use them on Shabbat. However, one may not spray perfume onto clothing or fabric. Directly onto skin is okay. Likewise, one may also spray insect repelllent, raid, or any other such product on Shabbat. When using such products one must leave a window or door open for the insects to escape and he may not spray directly at the insects. (See DSH from Feb. 19, 2014 for more information on pest control on Shabbat)

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