Handling graf shel re'i on Shabbos


We are permitted to remove an otherwise-muktzeh item from a room we are using, if the item is disgusting and its repellence would keep us from using the space. However, because the item is muktzeh, it would be ideal to have someone who is not Jewish do the removal.

One should not ask a minor to remove it, lest he grow up thinking that the removal is entirely permissible.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 5:21:9)

Have a great day,
