45b Is it Chametz?

by | Jan 5, 2021 | Psachim

If one makes a giant ball of dough and designates it to be used for sitting on, and covers it with “Tit” for that purpose, since it is not considered food anymore it can be kept in ones house on Pesach. 


Only FOOD is forbidden to keep in your house on Pesach. 


Although moldy bread is also forbidden to kept in your house on Pesach even though no one would eat it, that is only because it can be used as a catalyst to cause other dough to rise. However, anything that is not a catalyst and not a food is permitted to keep in your house on Pesach.
