Halacha - chometz
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: I have cologne and I don't know what the ingrediants are, is it chometz, and if it is is it ra'uy lachilas kelev, and does that make a difference?

If it contains alcohol it may be chometz, but in its current state it is certainly not fitting for a dog to eat. Therefore, according to the letter of the law it may be used, but the minhag is not to use liquids containing alcohol without Pesach approval.
