I am now learning and observing more laws. If I used to buy food before washing three times, is the food still ok to eat? For example, I bought peanut butter, chocolate, frozen vegetables before knowing the law. Are they ok?
Thank you very much
If you touched the actual food (not the container), if possible, the food should be washed off 3 times. If washing the food will ruin it, nothing has to be done and the food is ok to consume.
Wishing you much success
