    • 1968, Eliyahu Ki Ṭov, Tishrey-Shevat, page 145:
      Not all objects are kosher for sechach. The items used for sechach should be vegetable but detached from the soil; they must not have been used previously for any other purpose; they must never have acquired the status of a utensil and they must never have been capable of receiving defilement.
