Do you know if this is le'chatechila to use? Is there any guidance on this from local rabbonim? Should I just use plastic etc?
Is there a clever way to solicit likes without sounding like a classless wannabee?

Due to the situation this year, we are being somech on things that arenít normally advised to do lechatchila. Understand that we are very much not in a lechatchila situation.

That was still my question, as I personally can

This option was not mentioned at all in the guidance issued by BMG poskim. They said to use the lake.

Also note that in the guidlines here https://bit.ly/2xL7amu From R' Kleinman and reviewed by R Shmuel Kamenetzky this option is described in this manner

Tevilas Keilim
1. It is not so safe to go to keilim mikva'os as the surfaces may be contaminated. In fact many
keilim mikvaos are closed. Therefore for tevilas keilim you should go to the bay, and tovel in
the ocean water. The bay can be easily accessed via Burnett St. off Ave. U. Opposite the
courtyard of the apartment building there is a path to the water (right behind the guardrail).
The area is open, quiet & safe.
2. B'sha'as hadchak, i.e. if you have no access to a natural body of water fit for tevila within a
72 minute drive from your home, you can sell a share in the k'li to a non-jew, thus
exempting the k'li from tevila.
3. B'sha'as hadchak gadol if you cannot do any of the aforementioned options, you can be
mafkir the keilim in front of three people and then use without tevila. This is only b'sha'as
hadchak gadol where one of the other options are absolutely unfeasible
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

I would just point out, that if someone actually has the virus and can't leave their house, that may be considered shaas hadchak gadol.

That sounds like it could be. In such a case there can sometimes be the option of someone else doing it for you.

I just ordered from Lowe's with free in-store pickup. Didn't get "ready for pickup" yet, so can't comment on pickup experience.

BTW they also have bricks for .69. Add a little heavy wire and you can have a kashering brick for a fraction of the cost of the pre-made sets.
Is there a clever way to solicit likes without sounding like a classless wannabee?
