Re: Idol of Lakshmi in home.
I have seen people worshipping with idols on a daily basis.. You will have to be very alert though to keep them in a safe area, so that you will not visit the room/ area on your spl days of the month.. From what i have heard, they say that idols of iyappan , shiv (simply to put single gods ) needed to be handled with lot of respet. Thats why most of the houses will not have iyappan, shivan photos also.. Otherwise it is good to have them in your pooja until handled properly.
If you have a pillayar, make sure that you do small abhishekam every day and offer some neivedhyam.. ( little poha, kalkand, raisins, any fruits of your wish).
I too have 2 brass annapurni idols in my daily pooja
