Halacha - one sink
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: are you allowed to use one sink for meat and milk if used with soap
Answer:

The use of soap will not make a difference in Halacha, the Poskim agree that we can not assume that it renders all food particle instantly inedible. However, Rav Moshe Feinstein zatzal allowed the use of one sink for washing milk and meat dishes because there is no direct contact between the meat and milk. However if one only has one sink it would be preferable to either use not more than lukewarm water or to place separate racks on the bottom of the sink to prevent contact between the dishes and the non-Kosher sink. Certainly the sink must be cleaned well from any residue in between its use for meat and milk.
