Have you wondered...

If a completely bald (married) woman has to cover her head?

If a kohen can live in the same house as sheitel sourced from a corpse?


So that's what I'm chewing over now.
What interesting shailos have you wondered?

Wow that's a cool one!
I would imagine that's true - no need to clean for Pesach!
But does that mean they never clean their house? If it weren't for Pesach I'd never clean!!

ETA, unless a gluten -free house still has products made from spelt, oats, etc, which are also chametz, but which many people who are sensitive to gluten still can eat.

I have a friend who is 100% gluten free. Her house is always clean, but she never has to do "Pesach cleaning". She just starts cooking for the holidays, easy peasy.

I'd be jealous, but I don't want her health issues.

Ppl have discussed this. I think you can find it if you search for something about the halacha of Star Trek.

But from what I remember, you can replicate anything and it will always be Kosher - Shehakol.

Which is good, bc I've always agree see to try Andorian Ale and Klingon Blood Wine.

Gluten free is not synonymous with chametz free. Oats and spelt are both from chameshet haminim and are chametz unless they have a hechsher for Pesach. I don’t see why you would think someone gluten free doesn’t have chametz, unless they are also oat-and spelt-free.

Spelt has gluten!
And oats need to be specially certified, otherwise it's assumed they contain gluten as well.

This actually may have relevant implications now that scientists have figured out how to grow meat in a lab. But Star Trek still brings up many interesting shailas to ponder Very Happy

There are halachic discussions about whether Kisui Rosh specifically requires covering the head.

I'm really confused about this gluten free = KLP thing -- do Sefardim not have to have things certified KLP, can they just rely on "gluten free"? I am (highly) allergic to nuts but I am aware that most things I eat have a risk of a minuscule amount of nut (a "trace") from being on a machine that processed other nuts -- my body doesn't react to that kind of trace and so I don't worry about it. Do not products that are "gluten-free" have even a *trace* of chametz that would be fine for a celiac but not fine on Pesach?

If a gluten free product has a "trace" of gluten, it would be less than 1/60.
So as long as it's prepared before pesach it's good.

Still, I'm pretty sure people are makpid to have a hechsher of kasher lepesach and not rely on the gluten free certification.

We weren't discussing eating stuff on pesach but cleaning a house which doesn't anyway have chametz in it as a general rule. I presume that actual food to be eaten on pesach does need a hashgacha

I was answering SpottedBanana, who wrote the post before mine.
She was talking about eating.

And you weren't discussing anything - I haven't seen amother gray write any posts on this thread
