    Considering that we use it as a segulah, I always feel guilty pouring the wine that was used to extinguish the flame into the drain or discarding it in the trash. I once saw an old chashuv Rov pouring it outside his front door onto the ground, but I haven’t seen a written source for this, so I don’t know the significance of this. What do you do with it?

    Dab your fingers in it and touch your face and inside your pockets.

    “Dab your fingers in it and touch your face and inside your pockets.”

    On your forehead for sechel and in your pocket for gelt.

    And say siman tov umazel tov ulchol yisrael amein.

    While I appreciate your responses, I’m asking about what to do after that with the wine that’s left over.

    For a second there, I thought I missed the answer to my question when I searched the CR archives before posting this question. I actually clicked on your link before realizing… Lol
