My roommate is not Jewish. And I have quietly begun my cleaning. Should I disposed of the chametz with a promise to buy her more later? Any advice is welcome.

If you know that your home is chametz free, you do not need to clean it. However, you do need to check your house to ensure that that no chametz walked in by mistake over the course of the year.

Hi, I have a gluten intolerance. Therefore, I don't keep any chametz anyhow. Do I still have to clean for chametz?

Key Board Posted By Chani Benjaminson, chabad.org
I would like to correct you. You should never use damp cloth on computer/keys. You should use rubbing alcohol on a cloth to clean keys and between keys. Water damage teh computer. Alcohol on a damp cloth is better.
If none of the chametz-free options work for your pet, the recommended solution is to transfer its ownership to a non-Jew for the duration of Pesach, along with the responsibility for its care.

What do you do about pets whose diet requires them to have chametz? I have this situation (did not have it last year since we got these pets in July of last year.)

Turn the keyboard over and shake it well over a garbage can or large sheet of paper. Then used a compressed air can (available in department stores and computer supply stores) to clean out the interior, finally go over the keys with a slighly damp cloth or paper towel and check between keys to make sure no crumbs are left.

Thanks for this handy dany list. it makes us feel less panicky. I feel now I have more control what has to be cleaned, and what has to be sold with the Chometz. Chag Someach to all.
