Holiday Times: 

Thursday, March 25th-

Search for Chametz: Finish cleaning and search for chametz in the evening. Plant several (keep track!) pieces of chametz to be found. 

Make the blessing, al biur chametz, “to remove leaven” and by the light of a candle, scoop up using a feather and/or wooden spoon the pieces and put them in a paper bag or napkin (something that can burn). 

Then say: “All leaven or anything leavened which is in my possession, which I have neither seen nor removed, and about which I am unaware, shall be considered nullified and ownerless as the dust of the earth.”  The next morning, repeat this formula and burn the chametz.
