Soap on kosher for Pesach food

Question:

Hi,
I was at the grocery buying vegetables for Pesach. The cashier sprayed the counter with a cleaner before I proceeded. After I loaded the counter with bags of vegetables, I noticed there were some areas she missed when drying and some bags got a bit of soap on them (some bags were not sealed).
I have no idea which soap it was. Is it a problem if soap got on some items? (and I cannot even be certain if it did)

 

Answer:

The bags are still kosher for Pesach, because the soap didn’t make them chametz. The soap is not edible and surely not chametz.

Best wishes

  1. I’m referring specifically to thr vegetables, not the bags. It may have touched some onions. Last year I was washing dishes and some soap spritzed on nearby food. That’s not a problem on Pesach? Just want to be sure.
    Thanks

    1. The same would apply to the vegetables.
