Bathroom Disinfectant & Shabbat

The Daily Halacha Moment - Bathroom Disinfectant & Shabbat 🚽

״כל השונה הלכות בכל יום - מובטח לו שהוא בן העולם הבא״ (נידה עג ע״א, מגילה כח:)

“Anyone who studies Halachot every day is guaranteed that he is destined for the world-to-come” (Megilla 28b, Niddah 73a)


May one use a disinfectant that is placed in the toilet if by every flush the water changes colors?


Excellent question, disinfectant coloring that is added to the water to change the color with each flush are permitted, and one may flush the toilet even though the water will become colored as a result of doing so. [1]


[1]. See Chazon Ovadia, Shabbat, vol. 5, p. 28 who states that this is also not an issue of making the water smell pleasant. See also in Halichot Olam, vol. 4, p. 286; Ohr LeTzion 1:29, and vol. 2, 47:23; Tzitz Eliezer 14:47; Mishneh Halachot 15:97 and Yabia Omer, vol. 5, 27.
