Treif status of hands
If I handle food that is patently unkosher, and it gets on my hands, do my hands have a status of "treif" that might impact my handling of certain things?
Assuming I rinse them with water (whcih might not remove all the residue -- trief cutlery needs much more than a rinsing to allow it to be in use for kosher foods in the future), are there any limitations?
I would assume that I should not handle food until either a period of time passes, or I use a particular method of cleaning them (though i am guessing and don't know specifics about either option) but hat about handling things that are kodeish?
If I feed my dog non-kosher food (the item I have in mind is maniputared in my hands like a putty to cover his pill) can I then put on tefillin? Or touch a siddur?
I don't think the issue is one of tum'ah and tahara but is there a "status" to hands that have touched non-kosher food regarding contact with other things?
