Impure Clothing In A Washing Machine


By placing na-paak clothing into a washing machine, does it become paak or make the other clothes na-paak?


The ideal thing would be to wash off the impurity from the clothes then place them in the washing machine. However if someone has sent his impure (napaak) clothes to the laundry then following a full washing cycle, the clothes would be regarded as clean and paak. This is because the clothes are washed numerous amount of times during the washing cycle and water is constantly renewed while it goes out and new water comes in.
