The No Tin Foil, User-Friendly, Going Kosher for Passover Guide

You don't need a blowtorch 🙂 - simple cleaning supplies can do the trick.

Please, leave the blowtorch in the garage. 

NEVER, ever, don’t even consider, using tin-foil to cover any surface of your kitchen except around burners of a stovetop. This is not NASA, it’s a Jewish holyday!

Getting your home and life Kosher for Passover shape seems complicated — maybe even dangerous — but it doesn’t have to be. Perhaps you love Passover and the Seders and want to take your spiritual journey to a new level, or maybe you try to clean for the holiday but feel that it is a totally impossible task — use this guide (and accompanying podcast classes) to get Passover Ready.

The process does not have to be crazy or impossible. Starting seven years ago I began publishing the Going Kosher For Passover One-Page Guide on my website. Since then it has been downloaded tens of thousands of times.

This year I did not make any changes from last year in terms of process, but I will add this piece of advice:

Do what you can, do it without stress, and every year aim to take your Passover koshering to the next level.

And if you are experienced in koshering for Passover you should still read this guide as it can help you do it more efficiently and effectively. While a blowtorch is a method some use – you can leave your’s in the garage.
