Dear VaishNavas,

Here is few more things which could get in the way of pratikuulya vivarjanam:

 - gelatin is an animal product; most yogurts sold in supermarkets 
  are said to contain gelatin.
 - capsules used in medication, are said to be gelatin based.
 - china plates are said to contain cow's bone material. 
 - dress accessories made from leather (belts, shoes, wallets, bags etc)
 - wool (used in dress pants, sweaters); 
  many lambs supposedly die of de-wooling.

Dont know about use of silk-clothing. Wonder what shaastras say about it.
