Some time ago, I purchased a mortar and a crockpot, for the purpose of creating confusion powder, e.g. couch grass, black mustard seed, etc., and compelling oil. While grinding the ingredients in the mortar, I strongly infused my intentions into the operation.
After I finished making the powder and the oil, I was quite reluctant to use the mortar and the crockpot again. I was fearful that I would not be able to cleanse the items well enough to avoid contaminations from my earlier operations.
What is the standard, in your view, for sufficiently cleansing mortars and crockpots? In particular,
1. Is it sufficient to wash them thoroughly with soap and water? 2. If not, is it sufficient to sprinkle them with holy water, after washing them thoroughly with soap and water? 3. If not, is it sufficient to wipe them down with holy water, after washing them thoroughly with soap and water? 4. If not, is it sufficient to fumigate them with sage, after completing the steps set out in #3 above?
