Removing inedible items from the table on Shabbat


Inedible remains from one's meal are muktzeh on Shabbat, because they are useless. Where they are repellent and so their presence prevents desired use of the room, one may remove them; this is the leniency of "graf shel re'i". However, it would be better to remove them by using an implement to brush them away.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 5:22:13)

Have a great day,
