When there is a safek regarding whether to do tevilat keilim on an item we generally don't say a beracha when tovelling the item since this beracha is d'rabbanan i.e., tovel without a beracha.

However, I have been advised to take an item that does require a beracha and simply 'use this beracha' to additionally tovel the other 'safek tevilah' items. In this way we remove ourselves from a safek.

In a case where only one item requires tevillah with a beracha, and where you also tovel other keilim that don't require tevillah with a beracha, is the beracha על טבילת כלי or על טבילת כלים? (see relevant Shulchan Aruch (Yoreh De'ah, 120: 3))

Meaning: Since only one item requires the beracha do we say כלי or do we recognise that other things are being tovelled as well and say כלים?

    Not everyone agrees there is a distinct singular form to the blessing, so probably it's safe to use the "plural" form (since anyway plenty of authorities think that's the ideal one always)
