Question:

I have a non-Jewish lady who helps me around the house. She has been instructed to keep the meat and dairy separate and usually does so. Recently, I found meat utensils (which she had washed) in the dairy drawer and vise versa. What is the status of these utensils?
In general, how can we maintain household help who may mix up kashrus in the kitchen?

Answer:

This happens to be one of the issues with having non- Jewish help in the house. For your specific situation, it is important to know, does she usually use soap or dishwashing detergent when washing the dishes? If yes then b’dieved it is still kosher, or if she doesn’t use hot water.
