A rag that had turpentine on it was rinsed off in my kitchen sink that had dishes in it. If I wash the dishes with soap and water will they be safe to use? Should I just throw out the dishes? I don’t want to be over dramatic but I also want to be safe. Thanks!
Perfectly safe. The surfactants in the soap, combined with hot water and a thorough scrubbing, would remove the turpentine effectively. Even if the dishes were of a material that was not as non-porous as, say, glazed pottery, there would still be so little residue as to make any health danger minimal (if not nil).
