Soup in a papercup


The other day I was drinking a hot coffee in a paper cup. At some point I put the coffee cup down on not such a clean table that has a questionable kashrus status, but not used in the last 24 hours for anything meaty, and I don’t know how hot the cup was when I put it down onto the table. I then used a different paper cup to take hot soup (made with milchig equipment) and I put that hot cup of soup (including the cup) into that first paper cup that was now empty of coffee, except for maybe a few drops at the bottom. At some point I refilled the soup into the soup cup that was still inside of the coffee cup. Then I got a bit nervous that maybe that first cup was put down on the table while it was still hot at the bottom, and then when I put the soup cup into that cup it transferred not kosher taste to the soup cup, and then when I refilled the soup into the soup cup, some steam or splash back hit the ladle and might have effected the soup pot/ladle. Is this something I need to be concerned of?
Thank you.




There is no need to be concerned. the coffee cup was a kli sheini, and even if it leaked, the bottom of the paper cup, is raised and didn’t touch your table, so nothing happened to the cup, and everything is fine.

Best wishes
