Ritual Washing Cup: Mundane Tasks


Is a ritual washing cup a holy object that is supposed to be reserved for just ritual washing? My friend uses her ritual washing cup for a myriad of other purposes for which she finds it practical. Including washing the kitchen floor, washing windows, cleaning other parts of the house, cleaning her baby during diaper changes, watering the plants, and filling the urn with water, to name a few.



  1. There is no prohibition against using a ritual washing cup for mundane matters. Having said that, I am not sure that I would suggest that anyone use such a cup for cleaning their baby.
