Retraction: Poor Example of the Steipler’s Noble Lies

In the original article, I gave several examples of the Steipler’s noble lies. Thanks to a wonderful reader, I realize, my main example was incorrect, however.

In KD volume 1, page 138, Siman 113 (numbering from the newer edition) he wrote:

הכביסה בשבת הוא חילול שבת גמור ר”ל ואפי’ לשפוך מים על מקום המלוכלך הוא אב מלאכה ממש ה’ יכפר כי שגגה היתה.

I thought he was saying two different things, but I was wrong. ה’ יכפר כי שגגה היתה.
